Xiaomi Redmi Pro 2 With 48-Megapixel Camera Phone to Launch This Month: Everything You Need to Know
Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi is releasing a new smartphone Redmi Pro 2 with a 48-megapixel camera in January 2019. The Redmi smartphone bearing a 48 MP camera could be officially unveiled on the 10th of January 2019 in China. The teaser has a new Redmi logo, which will be unveiled along with the launch of the first Redmi smartphone with a 48 MP camera. As of now, there is no official confirmation about the specifications of the upcoming Redmi smartphones.
Xiaomi president Lin Bin took to Weibo -- via his ceramic Mix 3 slider already posted last month a close-up photo of what appears to be a phone with a 48-megapixel camera plus dual LED flash. Xiaomi could very well end up having the world's first smartphone with a 48-megapixel camera, and chances are it'll feature either Sony's IMX586 or Samsung's ISOCELL Bright GM1 (or both).
Lin didn’t share much else about the phone. He only revealed it is expected to launch this January, which, if it does, would make the device the first 48-megapixel phone camera in the world. Recent Huawei Mate 20 Pro and P20 Pro maxing out at 40 megapixels. The image, of course, does not reveal how many sensors will be part of the camera module but does show the camera will be raised a little.
According to the picture posted by Lin Bin, it will have a vertical camera with LED flash. It might be safe to say that the phone features more than one sensor, seeing how an increasing number of Android phones feature at least two rear cameras. There is no further information about this phone except the camera.
