realme Leaps into the Smartphone Quad Camera Era
Responding to the demand for high-quality smartphone photography, the next generation of camera technology, the quad-camera, has arrived. Not sure of what a quad-camera is or which realme models have this fantastic feature? Read on to find out more.
Leap to the quad-camera era
Not to be confused with the quad-camera of the past (featuring two rear and two front-facing cameras), today’s quad cameras get their name from the four camera lenses or sensors positioned at the rear of the phone. Each of the lenses has a different function, helping to make the humble smartphone camera more versatile than ever. The type of lenses that make up a quad-camera do vary between brands and from model to model but may include macro lenses, wide-angle lenses and portrait lenses, among others, making it easy to capture the perfect shot in just about every situation.
Almost all of realme Australia’s current models, including the realme XT, the realme 5 Pro and the realme 5, are fitted with the coveted quad camera feature, meaning that you definitely don’t need to blow your budget to enjoy the latest innovation in smartphone design. The realme XT, the realme 5 and the realme 5 Pro all feature an ultra-wide-angle lens, a primary lens, a portrait lens and a macro lens, as well as a standard front camera.
In addition to a 16MP AI front camera, realme XT’s quad-camera features a 64MP primary lens, an 8MP ultra-wide-angle lens, a 2MP portrait lens and a 2MP macro lens, allowing you to capture expert-level images in any setting, day or night. A field of view of 119° means that you certainly won’t miss anything when using the ultra-wide-angle lens, while the macro lens, operating with a shooting distance of just 4cm, allows you to focus in on all the finer details. Operating at game-changing 64MP, the realme XT’s primary lens delivers super-crisp high-resolution photos, up to four times larger than those taken with a 16MP camera. Coming in at up to 9216 × 6912 pixels in size, every detail in the frame is captured in unrivalled quality.
A selection of great features and modes found in the realme XT also help you to land the photo you’ve been dreaming of. Use the Chroma Boost mode for the perfect brightness and colouration or try Nightscape for your best night shots yet.
