Notably, this is the first smartphone from the company to feature such a whopping camera sensor. Though the device has been officially teased, there are not many details for us to bank upon. We can expect it to use either the Sony IMX586 sensor or the Samsung ISOCELL Bright GM1 sensor. From the teaser, we can expect the camera and flash module to be stacked vertically at the top left corner. Also, the '48MP Camera' is etched below the camera module. And, the volume rocker is at the side.

But the number of sensors to be used by this camera module still remain unknown and we cannot come to sort of conclusion with this teaser image right now.

It could either by the Mi 8 successor or the speculated 5G variant of the Mi Mix 3. As the other details are scarce, we need to wait for further information regarding the device. It is possible to get more details in the coming days as its launch is slated for January 2019.
