The fastest-growing smartphone manufacturing brand realme is getting increasing popularity among the young people of Bangladesh and other countries of the world for producing innovative technologies, advanced features and exclusive design. Recently, realme has brought ground- breaking improvement in the camera section in the coming realme smart-phones. On March 2, 2021, Chandler Qian, realme’s Global Camera Product Manger has shared the cutting-edge image capturing technology of latest realme phones through a grand event titled ‘2021 realme Camera Innovation Event | Leap to 108MP’. Here goes a detailed interview with realme regarding the new camera features of the future realme phones.
Interview with realme: Questions and Answers
Question: Why does realme claim its camera to be ‘Leap-Forward Camera’?
Answer: There are a lot of fascinating features in photography that require expensive DSLR or lenses. The Tilt-shift feature introduced lately is enough to serve that purpose as it can take the photo of the world making only a part of the photo appear clear and create a sense of a miniature world. Starry time-lapse video is another good feature. realme camera team have spent months for developing the tilt-shift photography and starry mode time-lapse video to bring the professional and high-cost features to more users who cannot afford a DSLR. That’s why realme claims its camera to be leap-forward.
Question: How is realme Quad camera technology superior to other brands?
Answer: For camera hardware, realme has adopted the superior latest Samsung HM2 108MP sensor to provide sharper photos to the users. For software tuning, realme camera team have developed in-sensor zoom based on 108MP, which equals to the effect of that on a 3x telephoto lens. Also in order to bring the best photo quality, we have introduced a new color tuning standard.
Question: What are the exclusive image applications provided in the latest realme phones?
Answer: The distinctive applications – the world’s first tilt-shift time-lapse video, starry time-lapse video and new portrait filters – are the things that make realme phones exclusive. Moreover, realme provides three iconic filters – neon portrait, dynamic bokeh portrait, and AI color portrait to capture every portrait in a trendy way.
Question: What are the new camera innovations in the upcoming realme 8 series?
Answer: realme 8 series phones will come equipped with both tilt-shift time-lapse video and starry time-lapse video features, both of which will help take photographic experience to a new height. Another innovation is the in-sensor zoom technology.

Question: What would be the camera configuration of realme 8 Pro?
Answer: realme 8 Pro adopts the latest generation of Samsung 108MP sensor HM2 as the primary camera, featuring 12000 x 9000 pixels and a large sensor size of 1/1.52″. HM2 also supports 9-in-1 pixel binning, ISOCELL Plus and Smart-ISO, which enable realme phones to take excellent images in more light conditions.
Question: How does 9-in-1 pixel binning technology work?
Answer: Binning is particularly important to increase the signal-to-noise ratio which will help reduce noise in images and to capture bright photos in extreme low-light conditions on smartphones. realme phones will have a 108-megapixel image sensor. With a 9-in-1 pixel binning it will knock down any capture to a larger megapixel image, which means each pixel will be bigger and therefore, capture more light.
Question: How does ISOCELL Plus technology work?
Answer: This technology basically works by minimizing optical loss and light reflection by dint of a barrier made from innovative new materials installed around each pixel. The material used in this technology also helps absorb more light resulting in better performance than small pixels.
Question: What is the efficiency of Smart-ISO technology?
Answer: HM2 takes the pain out of finding the optimal ISO setting with Smart-ISO technology to optimize picture quality and reduce noise. The intelligent feature automatically selects high ISO to get brighter, clearer images in dimly-lit settings without introducing excessive noise. In bright lighting, it shoots in low ISO for high-fidelity, color accurate images.
Question: What would be the zoom capacity of the upcoming realme 8 series phones?
Answer: realme camera team have developed in-sensor zoom based on 108MP, which equals to the effect of that on a 3x telephoto lens.
Question: What does realme offer in the ‘New Starry Mode’ feature?
Answer: In the new Starry Mode, realme launched the world’s first Starry Time-lapse Video on smartphones. Starry time-lapse videos are usually realized by shooting multiple clips via professional cameras, and then synthesizing and combining these clips by a computer through video editing software.
Develop starry time-lapse video is facing a serious challenge in terms of the needed performance to handle the synthesis of the photos. realme has come up with an exclusive time-lapse video algorithm based on starry photos. It will take 480s to shoot 30 photos and then generate a 1s time-lapse video, which means the time-lapse mode can show the perpetual changing universes at 480 times faster speed.
Question: What is tilt-shift Photography? How can it improve the user’s photography experience?
Answer: Tilt-shift photography is achieved with the help of expensive tilt-shift lenses, which can make only a part of the photo appear clear and keep all other parts out of focus to create a sense of a miniature world.
With realme’s new tilt-shift photography algorithm, realme 8 series is able to take tilt-shift photos as well as 10x faster tilt-shift time-lapse video, presenting the world in a fantastic and unique way. realme 8 Pro is also the world’s first smartphone that features tilt-shift time-lapse video. realme also provides some adjustment options in the tilt-shift mode, such as the shape, angle, position, and size of the bokeh effect, and even the transition effect between the bokeh area and the clear area.
Question: What is the specialty of trendy portrait feature in realme 8 series?
Answer: Most smartphones nowadays take portrait shots featuring a standard bokeh effect in the background. realme, as a trendsetting technology brand, has added something more to portrait photography. This time in realme 8 series, realme has provided three iconic filters – Neon Portrait, Dynamic Bokeh Portrait and AI Color Portrait – to make every portrait trendier and all the more stylish.
