Samsung's 64MP camera phone to be released sooner than we thought
Needless to say, more pixels don't equate a better picture per se, as they are usually made tinier to fit the count, and collect less light, all other things being equal. With the magic of pixel-binning, or combining information from several pixels into one, however, not only is the resulting photo file smaller in size, but also the snap itself is usually able to overcome the smallish pixel size.
What phone will Samsung use its new 64MP camera sensor in first, then? Well, one in the A-series, if the serial Samsung leakster Ice Universe is to be believed. Last month, they posted that "the international premiere of Samsung's 64MP sensor is in a mysterious model of the A series." Meanwhile, Xiaomi was also tipped to out a phone with 64MP sensor within its budget Redmi brand portfolio.
By the way, this month, Redmi will also release a 64MP camera phone, Samsung also restarted plans to launch 64MP A series phones in September-October.— Ice universe (@UniverseIce) 2 август 2019 г.
What does Samsung's 64MP GW1 sensor with Tetracell technology offer besides high-res photos? Well, improved low-light performance, better highlights exposure for bright elements, even faster autofocus and improved HDR photography, nearing the perception of the human eye. The proof is in the pudding, i.e. the actual photos, though, and the first sample you see above is doing a good job with tricky components like clouds and reflections.
