Huawei released the P40 series this year in April with a 5G phone as well. The cutting-edge Kirin 990 5G chip is super-fast and takes the user experience to the entire next level. But Huawei P40 Pro and Pro plus are just too expensive for some users. The Huawei P40 Pro with 256GB internal storage and 8GB RAM comes around $900. The higher-tier of smartphones in the series goes even higher in terms of price.
Now, the company decided to launch a new smartphone in the P40 series but that would be a more economical version of P40. The Huawei P40 lite 5G is an upgraded version of the Huawei P40 Lite that the company released in April 2020. The phone features upgraded silicon, a better camera equipped with AI software, and of course, 5G connectivity support.
The phone has a 6.5-inch LCD panel with HDR 10 support at Full HD+ resolution and has 1080 x 2400 pixels. The phone is powered by the new HiSilicon Kirin 820 5G octa-core chipset compared to the Kirin 810 on the previous model. The phone features a quad camera setup on the rear side of the phone. The primary camera is of 64MP and uses Sony IMx582 sensor with f/1.8, the secondary camera is of 8MP wide-angle lens with f/2.4, the third camera is of 2MP super macro lens with f/2.4, and the fourth camera is of 2MP with depth sensor lens and f/2.4. The front camera can take up to 16MP photos with f/2.0. The phone has 6GB internal storage with 128GB RAM.
The phone has a 4,000mAh battery with a 40W proprietary fast-charging capability. This much battery is good enough for an average user to sustain his phone for more than 24 hours with a single full charge. You can charge your phone up to 70% in 30 minutes as per the company's official statement.
In terms of connectivity, the phone supports Bluetooth, USB Type-C, a 3.5mm headphone jack, NFC, and 5G support. The phone comes running EMUI 10.1 based on Android 10. The design is similar to Huawei Nova 7 SE that was launched in China last month. The phone comes in three colors - Space silver, Crush green, and Midnight black. If you living in any part of Europe, you can pre-order the phone right now. The phone will go on sale starting on May 29 for a price of $430.
Xiaomi isn't a big brand when it comes to smartphone market, but its progressing with leaps and bounds. The Xiaomi Mi9 was the first device with the snadpdragon 855 chipset in that price range, and now we are looking forward to world's first 64MP camera. This was discovered by the XDA developers after they saw a line of code in the camera app of the developer kit for the upcoming MIUI 10 which is the Xiamoi's user interface laying over the top of the android. The code has multiple lines that highlight the 64MP camera capability and it looks like the lines are for a watermark being placed over pictures taken by a phone.
Samsung also announced a 64MP sensor for smartphones which tops the 48MP seen on recent current devices including the Xiaomi Mi9. According to the reports, it is still in the development phase, and it will take some time. The company is right now in the process to launch the latest Redmi K20 series. It also rebranded K20 smartphone series in some countries under the Mi name. Other than the camera specs, there isn't much in the rumors. The in-system camera app has also been upgraded to the latest MIUI 10.
With 64MP the Xiaomi camera could take amazing pictures just like high-definition images. So far Google's Pixel has the best result when it comes to taking pictures in low-light. We have to see how Xiamoi improve its software to take great images and compete the global smartphone manufacturers. The 64MP camera sensor supports real-time HDR up to 100-decibel and a dual conversion gain. This will also help the smartphone to create rich hues. The color accuracy will be far better and noise will be minimized. We don't have any words from Xiamoi's about the rumors or its price but it surely going to add some extra price to the cost.
So far, this year has been a great year for Xiaomi. The company has already launched the Redmi K20 series that includes the Redmi K20 and the Redmi K20 Pro in India. This year Xiamoi\'s sub brand Redmi become an independent brand on its own. The company has launched several smartphones starting with the Redmi Note 7 series early this year. Now the company is planning to introduce more smartphone in the upcoming days. Earlier this week, Redmi\'s General Manager Lu weibing confirmed that the engineers at redmi are working on a 64MP camera phone that comes with four rear cameras.
We don\'t have a fixed release date yet, neither company gave a hint. But considering that company is heavily promoting this one, we can expect a launch in upcoming a few months from now. Ahead of the launch, company has reveals that the 64MP camera will be able to take high resolution images of up to 20MB in size. This seems a great deal for those who love to take pictures with their smartphones. Pictures taken at such a high resolution means there won\'t be any loss of detail even if you decide to zoom in for some reasons. According to the company, the pictures taken by this camera will be able to produce pictures better than 8K resolution.
Xiamoi has further gave some details about the number of camera stating that the smartphone will have four cameras on the rear panel. The specs of other three camera lens hasn\'t been revealed yet. The name of the phone hasn\'t confirmed by the sources but tech enthusiasts suggest it to be Redmi Note 8 Pro. With the 64MP camera phone, Redmi is clearly aiming to compete with Realme and Samsung who are also planning to launch 64MP camera phone by later this year.
Xiamoi had great success with its phenomenally designed Redmi Note series, and just as the Redmi Note 7 made to the news by featuring a 48-MP phone camera earlier this year, Redmi Note 8 Pro is also coming up with a big camera lens. Realme semi-revealed its XT with the same sensor a couple of days ago, but the company is making it official now.
The camera phone with extra hardware and software capabilities are no longer surprise anyone. This is something almost everyone expects nowadays. But 48MP seems huge. Why would someone want a 64-mega pixel camera lens on a phone?
Another curious thing is - Is the image produced by a 48-mega pixel camera on a phone a high definition image? or the processing is done at some other level. Generally, mobile phones can't handle such a lens. There are two sensor designs in Redmi Note that are grouped together in fours for better light sensitivity. Using this technique a 48 MP camera phone will produce an only a 12-megapixel image. While Samsung 64-MP sensor gets you 16 MP resolution which is physically large, so it will capture more light.
In some situations, you might want to shoot in 64MP camera mode, but mostly 16MP mode will be useful. Realme has provided the sample images that were taken by the Redmi Note 8. The images do indeed presents lots of detail in certain areas of the image, though the heavy-duty processing was done on the software end.
There are a 6.55-inch 1080p screen and a quad-camera setup including that 64-megapixel primary camera, an 8-megapixel ultrawide, and two assistive 2-megapixel sensors along with a 20-megapixel selfie camera. The Note 8 Pro uses MediaTek's gaming-focused Helio G90T processor paired with 6 or 8GB of RAM and 64 or 128GB of storage.
Last year's Redmi K20 Pro was inarguably one of the best flagship smartphones from the company. The device offered high-quality hardware at a very affordable price, making it one of the most popular smartphones of the year.
Xiaomi has officially confirmed on Weibo that the Redmi K30Pro will arrive in March, although we don't have a specific date yet. It also uploaded a poster showing a phone without a punch-hole camera in the top corners. The Redmi K30 Pro has expected the company's latest smartphone belongs to the flagship category, just like its predecessor K20 Pro.
We have heard a lot about the phone so far, and now we know that it is coming next month. The poster and the leaks also give hint that Redmi K30 Pro will feature a pop-up selfie camera instead of the K30's punch-hole cute-out. The picture doesn't show the whole display but it doesn't make any sense for having the selfie camera the bottom of the device. But it is far more likely that Xiaomi is reverting to the K20 family's pop-up camera.
A few rumors suggest that the device will feature a 64MP quad rear camera system. Other leaks suggest that the K30 Pro will be powered by a Snapdragon 865 and will support the 5G network connectivity. The device has a 4,700mAh battery that is sufficient enough to keep it on charge for a whole day even for the heavy user. Unfortunately, the phone doesn't offer wireless charging. We have to wait till next month to see what else the phone has to offer.
Just after a day when Xiamoi unveils details about its 64-megapixel camera phone, Realme also had details to tell about its upcoming smartphone. At its camera innovation press conference in New Delhi on Thursday, the company revealed that it will be launching a smartphone equip with a quad-camera 64-megapixel lens in India before Diwali, which means before October 27.
Realme didn't share any specs but the Chinese smartphone company did reveal that it is using Samsung's ISOCELL bright GW1 sensor for the upcoming 64-MP camera phone. The upcoming Realme 5 and Realme5 Pro will also feature the quad-camera setup with a 64-MP primary shooting lens. There are reports of Realme working together with Samsung for a long time, even before ISOCELL bright GW1 went into production.
The company said, "We have been working closely with Samsung ISOCELL and created prototypes to start our development and testing work before GW1 was manufactured. Our goal was to make a camera with the highest resolution in the market,"
Realme further announced that the quad-camera setup will include a super wide-angle, 2x telephoto lens, ultra macro photography and expert m "The new Full-Function Quad Camera System on our smartphones will be packed with various features like Ultra Resolution, Super Wide Angle, Ultra Macro and Ultra Nightscape to provide our users an excellent camera experience," Meanwhile, Xiaomoi on Wednesday announced that it will launch a 64-MP camera phone under the Redmi brand in India. The company is also planning to bring a 100-MP camera phone under the MI-brand.

Moto recently teased its next smartphone that the company is launching on December 3. The phone has a pop-up camera with 64MP sensor. According to the teaser and rumors, this will be Moto one hyper. The launch event will be held in Brazil and so far, there is no information on its release schedule throughout the world. The Motorola One range has followed the norm of naming the phone after a distinct camera feature, as we have seen with the One Vision and One Action.However, with the One Hyper, we don't have any information about why it's called "Hyper".
Since September, the rumors about the upcoming high-end smartphone started to pour in and we have seen some real-like images of the concept design as well. But now we have some real images of Motorola's smartphone with a pop-up selfie camera and a notch-less display. The images are not being released from the official sources and maybe that's why the images are not clear but these are good enough to give a hint about the pop-up camera. Evan Blass, a reliable smartphone leaker Evan Blass tweeted out some images of notch-less Moto phone a few weeks ago.
The new phone features a powerful Snapdragon 675 processor, has 4GB of RAM, 128GB of expandable storage, and a 6.39-inch IPS screen (FHD+). But the device apparently houses a 64MP primary camera, which means Moto will be joining other smartphone manufacturers offering high-resolution sensors. The device is also said to have an 8MP depth sensor on the back side and a 32MP camera for the selfie camera. According to the specification, it seems like a mid-range smartphone rather than the premium phone we were expecting. However, it will interesting to see how Moto breaks in the industry saturated with high-end smartphones with premium features. Motorola One Hyper could have a 4,000 mAh battery with support for fast-charging over USB Type-C.
