The upcoming 64MP camera will be powered by Samsung's GW1 64MP sensor.

The new GW1 sensor will output 64MP photos with a resolution of 9248 x 6936 pixels.

The new Redmi smartphone carrying the 64MP camera will also support real-time hardware-supported high dynamic range (HDR) of up to 100-decibels (dB) for richer hues.
