The executive director at Xiaomi, Lin Bin, posted a photo at Weibo for what appears to be a phone with a 48 megapixel rear camera. We can also see a dual LED flash in the image. The number of lenses is not clear from this photo, so it can be either a dual or triple camera system.
There is no further information at this point except it will be launched in January next year. Bin added that he has used this phone for a few weeks and thinks he is not “bad”.
If the company is to launch this phone next month, it is likely to have the world’s first 48 megapixel camera phone. Whether to use the Sony or Samsung 48MP camera sensor, it remains to be seen.
