Realme unveils first-ever 108MP camera with trendsetting photography features

  • With the all-new Starry Mode, Realme has also launched the world’s first starry time-lapse video on its smartphone.
  • Realme 8 Pro adopts the latest generation Samsung 108MP sensor HM2 as the primary camera.

Realme, one of the world’s fastest-growing smartphone brand, unveiled its trendsetting, first 108MP camera in its upcoming Realme 8 series, at its digital Camera Innovation Event. With sharper photo quality, bringing the world’s first tilt-shift time-lapse video, starry time-lapse video, and new portrait filters, the Realme 8 series will lead the trendsetting photography experience for users, claims the company.


Realme 8 Pro adopts the latest generation Samsung 108MP sensor HM2 as the primary camera, featuring 12000 x 9000 pixels and a large sensor size of 1/1.52″. The large single-pixel size ensures better image quality. The HM2 sensor also supports 9-in-1 pixel binning, ISOCELL Plus, and Smart-ISO, which enable Realme phones to take excellent images in more light.

The 108MP photo taken by Realme 8 Pro has a well-balanced overall exposure with vivid colors and sharp details in both bright and dark areas. The details stay sharp even after zooming in.


Realme 8 Pro achieves higher zoom clarity with the new in-sensor zoom technology. In Realme 8 Pro’s camera, 3x mode activates a new in-sensor zoom, which will only use the 12 megapixels mapped with the zoomed part to generate an image. The imaging process is faster because of the smaller size on the 12MP photo, enabling Realme 8 Pro to take eight 12MP photos in a row and then input them into the clarity enhancement algorithm to further increase the image clarity.

With the all-new starry mode, Realme has also launched the world’s first starry time-lapse video on its smartphone. Starry time-lapse videos are usually achieved by shooting multiple clips via professional cameras, and then synthesizing and combining these clips by a computer through video editing software. Developing starry time-lapse video is challenging as it requires much-needed performance to handle the synthesis of the photos.

The company has come up with an exclusive time-lapse video algorithm based on starry photos. It just takes 480s to shoot 30 photos and then to generate a 1s time-lapse video. This means the time-lapse mode can show the perpetual changing universes at 480 times faster speed.

Tilt-shift photography is achieved with the help of expensive tilt-shift lenses, which makes only a part of the photo appear clear and keeps all other parts out of focus to create a sense of a miniature world. With Realme’s new tilt-shift photography algorithm, the Realme 8 series is able to capture tilt-shift photos as well as 10x faster tilt-shift time-lapse videos, presenting the world in a fantastic and unique way. Becoming a trendsetter, Realme 8 Pro is also the world’s first smartphone that features tilt-shift time-lapse video.

Realme has also provided 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. Users can conveniently choose and customize the bokeh effect that is the best according to the scene.
