Well, the wait is about to end as Realme is set to showcase the world's first 64MP camera smartphone in India on August 8.

But, the company has confirmed that India would be the first market to get this 64-megapixel camera smartphone. Last month, the company had shared a teaser image of the phone Weibo. This is also the first camera to sport Samsung's new 64-megapixel ISOCELL GW1.
"Get ready to witness some of the world’s first in smartphone camera technology at the #realme camera innovation event. Stay Tuned as we #LeapToQuadCamera and reveal the world’s first 64MP Quad Camera technology on a smartphone," the company said in a tweet on Friday afternoon.
Interestingly, Realme's domestic rival Xiaomi is also working on a 64MP camera smartphone and had recently confirmed the same through a teaser. Redmi had shared a sample image clicked from this phone on Weibo. The company had not announced when the phone will be launched or whether it will be available in India. Realme, which is just one year old, has risen among the top ten smartphone players worldwide as it grew 848 per cent year-on-year, according to Counterpoint. The 64MP sensor takes advantage of Tetracell technology to merge four pixels into one to give high-quality images in all light conditions, according to Samsung.
