Realme 9 use a 108MP sensor
The Realme 9 (4G) will be the company’s second phone after the Realme 8 Pro to feature a 108 MP sensor. However, the 8 Pro uses the older ISOCELL HM2, while the 9 uses the brand new HM6 sensor.
The company will sell the new camera under the name “ProLight.” As it explains, the ISOCELL HM6 uses the new NonaPixel Plus layout (3×3 binning) which, combined with other improvements, will give the sensor a 123% increase in light gathering ability compared to the HM2.
Based on internal tests, Realme says the new camera produces brighter photos and better color reproduction when shooting in low light.
The Realme 9 will also use the “Super Zoom” feature built into the HM6 sensor to achieve lossless zoom using the main camera. Samsung has yet to officially unveil the new sensor – the Realme 9 will be the first to use it, while the phone itself is still awaiting release. Expect to hear more details about the HM6 and the new NonaPixel Plus configuration soon.
