Xiaomi’s Redmi launched its first smartphone with a 108MP camera sensor – Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G, a couple of months back in China. The smartphone made its debut as Mi 10i in the Indian market. Now, Redmi GM Lu Weibing has said that we will see more products with 108MP cameras. Lu Weibing took it to Weibo to take a dig at the companies that used to include a ToF sensor on the smartphones, and have slowly moved away from it. Take a look at his post below (posted originally in Chinese),

Lu Weibing wrote that the brands that were promoting the presence of ToF sensors on their smartphones are no longer including it in their new products. Xiaomi was amongst the brands that didn’t jump on the ToF bandwagon. Lu Weibing’s comment might be indirectly targeted at the recently launched Moto Edge S as it packs a ToF camera. To those unaware, Moto Edge S packs quite impressive specs for its price and definitely poses a threat to other smartphones in the segment.

Additionally, Redmi GM also said that the company will launch more 108MP camera smartphones this year. The company is gearing up to launch the Redmi K40 series this month in China. We can definitely hope to see some of the smartphones under the upcoming Redmi K40 lineup to sport a 108MP sensor. The company has already hinted that the Redmi K40 Pro will be powered by Snapdragon 888 SoC, and will cost under RMB 3,000 for the base variant.

Apart from the Redmi K40 series of devices, we can hope to see a 108MP camera setup again with a Note 10 series device later this year. What are your thoughts on ToF sensors?
