Xiaomi could therefore be the first in the world to present a phone with a 48 megapixel camera, likely equipped with Sony IMX586 sensor or ISOCELL Bright GM1 by Samsung. These new sensors can benefit from a special algorithm that combines four pixels into one, in order to simulate better scene illumination - a function particularly suitable for shooting in dark environments.

There is a possibility that this phone could be featuring the newly announced Snapdragon 855 chipset and 10 GB of RAM. It is advisable to wait for further reports to confirm on the identity of the 48MP camera smartphone. No other information is available at the moment, but Lin suggests a January 2019 launch.
