Sony IMX586 over Samsung GM1 Sensor
Now, you might think that you have seen on paper, Sony IMX586 and Samsung GM1, both the image sensors are having same 0.8-micron pixel size. But if you dive into deep layers, it will reveal that Sony’s IMX586 sensor is much better than Samsung GM1. The IMX586 truly uses the 48 million pixels while Samsung GM1 sensor, in real, only captures the 12 million pixels, which cannot promise to deliver the picture having 48 million pixels. Without being thinking of these all things, people really don’t care about these things. But, it matters.
In Samsung GM1 sensor the problem is that even though the actual sensor has 48MP resolution the RGB filter (or polarizer) is in a 2×2 array which means that of the 48MP every 4 pixels has one single RGB color filter on it instead of each pixel having its own RGB color filter so it’s basically locked to using 12MP mode by Samsung so, in reality, the sensor can produce 12MP color images with a big pixel size instead of 48MP color images. But it can definitely resolve 48MP B/W images which can be used to create an interpolated 48MP color image. Clicked by Sony’s IMX586 sensor, one can see details easily in an image by zooming in on a certain level.
Of course, Little Bit of Higher Price
Redmi Note 7 Pro will definitely be a better handset. However, it seems the phone will definitely cost a little bit of higher compared to the little brother Redmi Note 7 device. Moving eyes over the different sources, the Redmi Note 7 Pro could get the price tag around Rs. 15,000.
