We know that there is a triple camera setup on the rear & a dual-camera setup on the front. But until now, we didn’t know the camera specs. We only knew that there is a primary 64MP camera but didn’t know if it is a Samsung sensor or Sony’s.
Today, Redmi revealed the camera specs of K30 on Weibo & as the title says, it is going to be the first smartphone to have a 64 Megapixel Sony IMX686 sensor.
As the image above reveals, the Redmi K30 has a primary 64 Megapixel Sony IMX686 sensor, a secondary ultra-wide-angle lens with 120-degree FOV, a 2MP dedicated macro lens for going as close as 2cm to the subject & a depth sensor.
There is a 20 Megapixel primary selfie camera & a secondary depth sensor. It would’ve been better to see a wide-angle lens on the front as well.
The Sony IMX686 is the upgrade to the 48 Megapixel Sony IMX586 which we saw on a ton of phones this year, from the budget phones to the flagships. Almost every brand used this sensor on at least one of its phones. The IMX686 is a 1/1.7″ sensor with 4-in-1 pixels having a 1.6-micron pixel size. So, the pixel size if 0.8-micron, but there is pixel-binning to combine four pixels into one, resulting in a 16 Megapixel image with 1.6-micron pixels.
Finally, here is a video & the images that show the zooming capability of the primary camera & the details even after zooming in –
