As of now, it’s not clear if Realme will showcase the final device at the event. Anyway, we will at least see a prototype device with the 64MP camera.
Earlier: Realme CEO Madhav Sheth has confirmed that the company will soon launch the world’s first smartphone camera with 64MP camera. The Realme 64MP camera phone will come with Samsung’s GW1 sensor. Also, the phone will be launched first in India.
The company CEO also shared a camera sample from the 64MP camera Realme phone which looks impressive. Moreover, the watermark on the image says 64MP AI Quad Camera. This suggests that this will be a quad-camera phone. This will also be a first time for realme as the latest Realme 3 Pro comes with triple rear cameras.

Earlier last month, Samsung has introduced two new image sensors for smartphones including the 64-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor. The new GW1 sensor works on Pixel-merging Tetra cell technology and offers 16MP images in low-light conditions.
It works by merging four pixels into one to increase light sensitivity and offering high-quality 64MP brighter shots. The new 64 MP sensor also supports real-time HDR of up to 100-decibels that provides rich colors. It also comes with Dual Conversion Gain (DCG) and Super Phase Detection features.
Until now we have heard that Xiaomi will launch a 64MP camera phone. Now, it looks like Realme will be the first one to launch this phone in India. We should see more details about this upcoming Realme phone in the coming weeks.
Meanwhile, Realme has launched its Realme X smartphone in China and it is expected to come to India very soon. So we can expect that this 64MP camera phone could also be a Realme X variant.
