Realme, the Chinese smartphone maker hosted its 2021 Camera Innovation Event today. The name of which speaks for itself – Camera Innovation.
Ever since 2019, the company has commenced installing 64-megapixel sensors in its smartphones, and the Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor was a favorite. This year, the manufacturer is ready to move to a new level – to start installing a 108-megapixel module! And the first Smartphone with it will be the realme 8 Pro.
What we Know So Far About 108-Megapixel Camera of the realme 8 Pro
At today’s event, the company has announced that the choice fell on the Samsung ISOCELL HM2 sensor. It is a 1/1.52″ sensor with 0.7-micron pixel size and support for Super-PD autofocus. The sensor is capable of taking photos with a resolution of 12000×9000 pixels and recording 4K video at 120 frames per second.
Lossless 3x zoom preserves details and colors without over-sharpness, and captures 12MP stills, and displays an enlarged area. Image processing is set up so that you can take 8 consecutive shots, which are then processed by special algorithms to increase clarity.
Star Mode (Astrophotography) allows you to capture the starry sky in slow motion. In 8 minutes, the camera is able to create 30 photos, which are then “glued” together and a one-second video is obtained, and the process is repeated to achieve the desired final result. Another trick from realme is tilt-shift time-lapse video.
This shooting simulates a miniature world, leaving parts of the image out of focus. You can choose the angle, position, and size of the bokeh directly in the camera settings; as well as add transition effects between blurred and clean areas. Among others, new portrait filters are available, including neon portrait, dynamic portrait with blur, and AI color portrait.
Among other things, they showed what the camera of the realme 8 Pro will be. It will be a square block with four image sensors.
