The Redmi Note 8 Pro will also debut as the first Redmi phone to sport a 64-megapixel primary camera sensor.It is, however, unclear whether the 64-megapixel camera will be exclusive to the Redmi Note 8 Pro or it will also be featured on the Redmi Note 8.
Earlier this month, Xiaomi announced that it would bring a new Redmi phone with a 64-megapixel camera. The camera sensor will be Samsung’s ISOCELL Bright GW1, the company said. It also revealed that the phone with the new sensor would make its way to India in the fourth quarter.
Like Xiaomi, rival Realme is also leveraging the Samsung innovation and is set to launch the Realme XT as its first 64-megapixel camera phone in India in late September.
