Xiaomi is one of the oldest companies to launch a phone with a 48MP camera (Redmi Note 7 Pro) in 2019. Later in the same year, it also became one of the first smartphone manufacturers to launch devices with a 64MP camera (Redmi Note 8 Pro) as well as a 108MP camera (Mi CC9 Pro). Now, according to Sudhanshu, a well-known tipster on Twitter, Xiaomi is working on a phone with a whopping 144MP camera.
The megapixels game on smartphones was dead for a few years since the Nokia Lumia 1020. But when Sony announced its 48MP IMX586 sensor, the game was back on with Samsung, another major supplier of smartphone cameras joining the bandwagon.
As for clients, Xiaomi is one of the few companies participating in the Megapixel race. Being the first to launch a phone with a 108MP sensor, the brand wants to continue the streak with the upcoming 144MP sensor as suggested by the tipster.
As per the tip, this new 144MP sensor could either debut on Xiaomi Mi 10S Pro or Mi CC10 Pro. However, the leakster did not say anything about who will be supplying this sensor to Xiaomi. As of now, only Samsung is rumored to be working on a 144MP camera sensor so there are high chances of it being the sole supplier of this new large sensor.
