In its Realme Camera Innovation virtual event, smartphone maker Realme today confirmed that its upcoming handset, the Realme 8 Pro will be coming with a 108-megapixel Samsung HM2 primary camera sensor. It is worth mentioning that it is the same sensor that is used in Xiaomi's Mi 10i smartphone that was introduced in September last year.

In the event, Realme added that besides the 108-megapixel camera sensor, the Realme 8 Pro will also feature a new in-sensor zoom technology that will offer 3x zoom while delivering good quality images as compared to the ones that are clicked using the traditional optical zoom lens.

Further, the Realme 8 Series will also have an updated Starry mode and will work along with time lapse videos. The company claims that the new 108 -megapixel Samsung HM2 primary camera will bring well balanced exposure along with vivid colors and some sharp details even in the low lit areas.

It's worth mentioning that Samsung's new camera sensor has 12,000 x 9000 pixels effective resolution and a sensor size of 1/1.52 inches. As for the in-sensor zoom technology, Realme says that it will use the company's own clarity enhancement algorithm for enhancing zoomed images. This technology will also crop a 108-megapixel image into a 12-megapixel size.

However, instead of simply cropping the large image, this will combine eight 12-megapixel photos to increase the clarity.

The updated Starry mode in the time lapse videos is now called the Starry Time Lapse video.

As per the firm, this feature will take 480 seconds to shoot 30 photos and generate a 1-second time lapse video.

On the video part, Realme says that the time lapse video feature will be available on Realme 8 series. This will allow users to capture both to tilt-shift photos and 10 times faster tilt-shift time lapse videos. You will also get options to adjust the parameters including the shape, angle, position, and the size of the bokeh effect. In addition, the Reame 8 series will also include four new portrait filters, namely Neon Portrait, Dynamic Portrait, Dynamic Bouquet Portrait and AI color portrait.
