World’s First 192MP Camera Phone From Xiaomi: Everything You Need To Know
Xiaomi is all set to unveil the world’s first ever 192MP camera phone as per some recent reports. Companies are working on the 192MP camera sensor for sometime now, and it has been in the news previously.
Rumours suggest Xiaomi has already a phone in development with the so-called 192MP camera sensor.
Previously Xiaomi has been a frontrunner when it comes to using top-end high-resolution camera sensors. From 48MP to 64MP to 108MP camera sensors, Xiaomi has used them all in different smartphones.
World’s First 192MP Camera Phone: What You Need To Know
The leaked Weibo post reveals that a phone with a 192 MP camera is in development, and it could be coming as early as next month. The recent camera war has been mainly between the 32MP, 48MP and 64MP camera sensors.
The 108MP sensor has been setting up the tone as well, and we will get to see a number of 108MP camera phones in 2020.
Both Samsung and Xiaomi brought flagships with 108MP cameras, and Realme is said to be bringing their next with the same 108MP sensor, the Realme X3.
Samsung and Xiaomi both have used the high-resolution camera sensors for multiple smartphones. Particularly Xiaomi has been a frontrunner when it comes to using top-end high-resolution camera sensors. From 48MP to 64MP to 108MP camera sensors, Xiaomi has used them all.
While Xiaomi stays in the line, Samsung may challenge Xiaomi with a new flagship with some top-end camera sensors next month.
The 192MP camera smartphone is set to be available next month as well.
The 192MP camera phone may come with the still-new Qualcomm mid-range 5G chip, the Snapdragon 765. The Snapdragon 765 supports 192MP cameras, but this could also mean a combination of cameras to add up to 192MP resolution.

While this could be the first time ever for a phone to come with such high-res camera sensor, nothing as such hasn’t been experimented with recently. Though higher resolution count doesn’t necessarily mean better camera results, it at times is a mere marketing gimmick.
The higher megapixel count hints at some type of technology as pixel binning to be used, so it may take seconds to take such a high-resolution photo.
While the leak gives us a May timeline, the 192MP camera phone war is going to be between Xiaomi and Samsung. We still are yet to know which company will reveal it first, but the camera sensor will probably be from Samsung.
If launched in China, the 192MP camera phone may come to India on a later date, as already Xiaomi has a 108MP camera phone coming to India in a few days, the Mi 10, whose launch was delayed due to the recent lockdown caused by COVID-19.
