It will also use Samsung’s 64-megapixel ISOCELL sensor
With 48-megapixel cameras slowly becoming the norm, brands are preparing for more megapixels in their cameras. Samsung and Xiaomi have one in the works, and it appears that Realme is joining the party as well.
Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth confirmed this on Twitter, saying that the next Realme phone will be the first to use Samsung’s ISOCELL GW1 sensor.

The GW1 has 1/1.72″ sensor—a large size for a smartphone sensor—and utilizes Samsung’s Tetracell technology to combine the 0.8um pixel into a large 1.6um pixel resulting in detailed 16-megapixel photos.
Sheth posted a sample image using the new sensor, and the watermark on the image hints at a quad rear camera setup for the next Realme phone. Realme’s CEO did not reveal anything else, but hinted that the mystery Realme smartphone will launch in India first.
