The co-founder and president of Chinese smartphone manufacturer Xiaomi has posted an image to a Chinese social network suggesting that the company is developing a smartphone with a 48-megapixel camera.
Lin Bin posted the image to Weibo, which reveals a close-up crop of the back of a smartphone with the words 48MP Camera clearly visible.
As DPReview points out, 48-megapixel Xiaomi phone will probably use its high resolution for noise-free digital zooming and pixel-binning.
It’s not clear whether the new Xiaomi phone will use a multi-camera setup, nor the size of its sensor.
We can probably expect Xiaomi to make the full announcement of its 48-megapixel phone at CES in January.
