Here is a brief compilation of Superstitions which are prevalent across different countries.

A camera is one of the most important features in a smartphone, undoubtedly. Probably that’s the reason all smartphone manufacturers have been trying too hard to lure more customers by offering either a dual, triple or quad lens camera setup in their flagships. Xiaomi, the world’s fourth-largest smartphone brand, is also trying to secure a sizable share of the market by offering jaw-dropping camera capabilities in their smartphones. Recently, Xiaomi’s President Lin Bin has shared a full-frontal image of a smartphone that sports 48MP camera. The device is expected to be launched in January 2019. However, it is still unclear whether the smartphone features a dual camera or triple.

Samsung or Sony Sensors Possibly Involved

The mysterious image of the smartphone with a 48MP camera has fueled another speculation as well. The 48-megapixel camera needs to sport a 48-megapixel sensor. And right now, it is thought to be one of two sensors currently in the market. One is the Sony IMX586 48-megapixel sensor, and another one is the Samsung ISOCELL Bright GM1 48-megapixel sensor. While the former was released in July this year, the Samsung sensor was released in October.

All In the Images

Xiaomi has been captivating the customers of its segment for quite a while now. However, the one feature that the people have wanted improvements in, has been the camera. Xiaomi seems to have listened to its customers in that aspect. This is because, earlier this year, Xiaomi did build an in-house camera division. The news of it came about by means of another leaked email which CEO Lei Jun sent to his employees. The camera division will be focusing on increasing the quality of the images to a great extent.


Is It the 5G Version of Mi Mix 3?

Since the Mi Mix 3 has been so much in the news, there has been speculation as to this 48-megapixel phone being the 5G variant of Mi Mix 3. This is also because of the fact that its 5G variant is due to release in in Q1 2019. But, it doesn’t seem likely to be so. The 48MP camera offers a massive improvement on the two 12MP cameras scheduled to be placed behind Mi Mix 3. No ‘variant’ offers such massive improvements. Hence, the above speculation can be safely ruled out.

History of Large Megapixel Smartphones

It is a thing to note that the major smartphone players haven’t majorly invested in a high-resolution camera, until recently. But this doesn’t mean that it has not been tried before. The first phone that comes to your mind when you think of a high-resolution smartphone is the Nokia 808 Pureview. Released back in 2012, the smartphone sported a camera of 41-megapixels, which people back in the day took to be crazy, and for good reason as well. However, regardless of how impressive and path-breaking its camera was, the phone itself did nothing to live up to it. It was powered by an ageing software. Thus, it wasn’t the success that it should have been back in the day. This also represents the opportunity lost by Nokia back in the day. It was to use this cutting-edge technology to build a successful product.

Nokia might have taken another hit at it with its 41-megapixel Lumia 1020, but that was about it. No other smartphone company has been trying to break the 40MP camera barrier until recently accomplished by Huawei. It’s P20 and Pro’s 40MP triple camera has garnered rave reviews and great DXOMark ratings as well. And now, more and more companies are trying to join the bandwagon. Are the people really ready for a 40MP camera after all this time? We guess we have to now.
