Cameras are one of the main selling points for smartphones. That’s because the race for pixels is never-ending. The common belief is that clearer pictures can lead to more megapixels, but that’s not always true. Yet, the number of megapixels also affects the choices of consumers. While the 108-megapixel lens is still a luxury, the 64-megapixel camera is potentially India’s most affordable now and can be found through price points on smartphones.
And for a phone photographer, a smartphone with a 64-megapixel sensor (of course, we are talking about Android phones) is more than appropriate. In general, a customer can either get the 64-megapixel ISOCELL Bright GW1 sensor from Samsung or the 64-megapixel IMX686/IMX682 sensor from Sony fitted with a tablet. So, if you’re on the lookout for one of these, here’s a peek at the best 64MP camera smartphones to purchase in February.
Realme X7 Pro 5G
Four rear cameras are fitted with the recently launched Realme X7 Pro 5G: a Sony IMX686 64-megapixel main shooter, an 8-megapixel ultra-wide sensor, a 2-megapixel monochrome sensor, and a 2-megapixel macro sensor. The selfie camera is an AI optimized, 32-megapixel shooter. In the daytime, both the front and rear cameras do a good job. The mobile costs Rs 29,999.
Vivo V20 Pro
The Vivo V20 Pro’s rear panel consists of a triple camera setup – a main Samsung GW1 64-megapixel camera, an 8-megapixel wide-angle lens, and a monochrome 2-megapixel sensor. The front-facing cameras, one is a 44-megapixel Samsung GH1 camera and another is an 8-megapixel wide-angle lens, are one of the main highlights of the handset. The camera has a range of exciting features, such as dual tracking. The cost of the smartphone is Rs 29,990.
With a 64-megapixel Sony IMX682 sensor supported by a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2-megapixel macro lens, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor, the Poco X3 provides a quad-camera set-up at the rear. Users get a 20-megapixel front-facing camera to take selfies. This is one of the few smartphones on the list that performs even in low light conditions very well. The mobile is priced at Rs 16,999.
You can also go for the Vivo V20 instead of its Pro variant if budget is a concern. The mobile features a main shooter with a 64-megapixel Samsung GW1 sensor along with an 8-megapixel multi-function camera that can click on ultra-wide-angle, bokeh, and super macro images, and a 2-megapixel monochrome camera. The mobile has a single front-facing 44-megapixel sensor for selfie-clicking. The mobile is priced at Rs 24,990.
Moto G9 Power A 64-megapixel main camera, a 2-megapixel macro camera, and a 2-megapixel depth sensor are impressive camera specs for the Motorola Moto G9. A punch-hole selfie camera with a 16-megapixel sensor is available on the front. In low-light settings, this one lets down somewhat but can be considered for other offers such as a neater Android experience.
