The most affordable phone with a 48-megapixel rear camera?
After appearing in several teasers, Redmi finally unveiled its first phone as an independent brand with the Redmi Note 7. Headlining its string of features is its 48-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL GM1 rear camera, which has a low-light tech that stacks its 0.8-micron pixels into large 1.6-micron pixels for a well-detailed 12-megapixel photo. Assisting it is a 5-megapixel depth sensor.
