Former OPPO sub-brand Realme is on a roll. Just a few days ago, market-research firm Counterpoint Research revealed that it was the fastest-growing smartphone company in the second quarter of 2019. Now, the brand has announced that it will hold a camera-innovation event August 8.

It’s a date on the 8th! Stay tuned for updates

What will it showcase? According to Realme’s official announcement, it will reveal the world’s first 64-megapixel quad-camera technology on a smartphone.

Recall that Realme India CEO Madhav Sheth already shared a sample picture shot on an upcoming Realme phone boasting a physically large 64-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor made by Samsung.

Many are saying that the August 8 event will serve as the launching pad for a phone with that kind of camera. Frankly speaking, we’re not sure about that. You see, every time its sister brand OPPO holds an innovation event, it’s all about the technology.

For example, at its February 23 launch we attended in Barcelona, Spain, OPPO showcased its 10x lossless-zoom tech. That feature eventually debuted more than a month after, on the OPPO Reno 10x Zoom Edition.

So our guess is that the Realme handset with the said 64-megapixel quad-camera will be launched weeks after — end-August or September even. But who knows? We could be wrong. Hey, we would love to be wrong on this one.

Word is Xiaomi’s Redmi is going to make its own 64-megapixel camera phone official this month. While we can’t wait to see which company will get to the finish line first, we’re more interested in finding out which of them offers the better device for mobile photography.
