Realme 8 Pro uses the 108MP Samsung HM2 sensor

Realme is adopting Samsung’s latest 108MP HM2 sensor with 9-in-1 pixel binning and 1/1.52″ large sensor size that is claimed to improve the image quality in low light. The ISOCELL Plus technology is said to minimise optical loss and light reflection, delivering higher colour fidelity, and up to 15 percent enhancement in light sensitivity. The sensor comes with smart-ISO that enables take excellent images in more light. The sensor will deliver 3x zoom, brings a New Starry Mode with support for timelapse video, tilt-shift, and portrait mode with three new filters. The handset can record videos up to 4K@120 fps. Realme 8 Pro is claimed to click well-balanced images with vivid colours and sharp details in both bright and dark areas.

3x Zoom

Realme 8 Pro 3x Zoom
Realme 8 Pro is said to achieve higher zoom clarity with the new In-Sensor Zoom technology. There’s a new 3x zoom mode that uses the 12MP mapped with the zoomed part to generate an image. Thanks to a smaller size, the imaging process is faster on the 12MP photo. This will enable the phone to take eight 12MP images in a row and then input them into the clarity enhancement algorithm to further increase the image clarity. The company claims the photo clicked with 3x mode on the Realme 8 Pro is better than the images taken from the optical telephoto lenses in terms of sharpness.

New Starry Mode
