After launching its own health app called Mi Health and the Xiaomi CC series, the Chinese OEM is expected to release a new smartphone with a 64MP camera.

As earlier announced, Chinese manufacturing giant, Xiaomi, held the Xiaomi Future Image Technology Communication conference in Beijing.

Within this ISOCELL Plus technology there is the Dual Conversion Gain (DCG) technology, which is used to make adjustments to the ISO sensitivity depending on the intensity of light in the ambience where the camera is used to click images. It uses low ISO in high-brightness environments, and high ISO in the dark-light environments to achieve the best signal-to-noise ratio for the entire scene. The GW1 sensor uses ISOCELL Plus technology to create a pixel-to-pixel barrier to reduce light interference between pixels and consequently improve colour reproduction. The maximum resolution of a photo from that sensor will be 12,032 x 9,024 pixels. Li Jishuo, the global vice president of Samsung Electronics' LSI Division, came on stage and introduced some of the main highlights of the Samsung GW1 sensor.

There are plenty of phones with a 48-megapixel camera like the OnePlus 7 Pro, the Redmi Note 7, and the Honor View 20.

According to the Ward's plumber, the lightning struck the methane gases that had built up in the pipes from all the fecal matter. When you think of an explosion in the bathroom, chances are it's a joke about a bad case of diarrhoea.

The first Redmi smartphone with a 64MP sensor will launch as soon as the next quarter, confirmed the Xiaomi sub-brand at the event. There are speculations of the new smartphone being named the Realme 5 (the predecessor of this is now called Realme 3) as Chinese consider the number four inauspicious. But it has not confirmed anything else about this camera on its future smartphones.

He then goes on to reaffirm that the company's upcoming device will utilize Samsung's 64MP GW1 sensor.

The briefing today is an apparent move to steal the thunder from its rival Oppo, which is set to launch its first smartphone with a 64-megapixel camera tomorrow.
