On 10 December, Redmi, the sub-brand of Xiaomi, will launch the most awaited smartphone of this month, the Redmi K30 5G. So far, the company had confirmed the Processor, screen size, and battery information. But today, the company finally confirmed that the upcoming smartphone will feature Sony’s next- gen IMX686 camera sensor.

Sony IMX686 camera sensor will offer a 64MP ultra-clear image quality with a large f/1.7 aperture and 1.6um pixel. The 64MP sensor will capture an image with a resolution up to 9248 X 6944 pixels.

The company also shared some additional information that, along with a 64MP primary camera, the Redmi K30 5G will have a 120-degree ultra-wide-angle lens, a macro lens that is capable of capturing an image from 2cm and AI 2000 million.

The company didn’t share any information about the front cameras.

Apart from the camera sensor, the Chinese tech company also shared some camera samples of the Redmi K30.

64MP camera samples

Note: Orginal Sample image (38.2MB)

The camera samples above are only the 3-percent of the original image captured. The company cropped the original camera sample and posted it on Weibo to reveal the camera capabilities of Redmi K30- the first smartphone with Sony’s 64MP next-generation IMX686 camera sensor.

In every sample, we can see the finer details after being cropped massively.


The company also shared a video, which includes a zoomed-in view of the Wang Yibo sample image, where we can see the original full image. The 64MP captures every detail, and even after zooming many times, the image grasps every detail.

The company didn’t stop with the 64MP primary camera samples and shared some Macro Shot samples from its standalone macro lens.

The dedicated macro lens of the Redmi K30 is capable of capturing a macro shot with a 2 centimeters focusing distance, which is double the focus distance of the most smartphones, including a macro lens in the current market.

Macro Shot samples

In every sample, the dedicated macro lens wonderfully captures the miniatures like the basketball player, the swimmer, and more. 

The macro mode includes a series of filters, which will be a fun experiment.

We also expect the company to reveal details about all the rear cameras and the dual front camera soon as the launch date is near to hit.
