Top 10 48-megapixel Cameraphones You Can Buy In The Philippines (Mid 2019)

There’s still a bunch of them not here yet

The megapixel wars are seemingly back in full force as a large majority of smartphone brands have released smartphones that pack a 48-megapixel main camera.

There’s a lot to unpack when you’re talking about 48-megapixel cameras, and we suggest you go read our explainer on the topic instead. The basic gist of it is that while these phones pack 48-megapixel cameras and you can still produce 48-megapixel photos, you’ll most definitely just be shooting 12-megapixel stills instead.

Want to buy one yourself? You’re in luck – below is the list of smartphones equipped with a 48-megapixel camera that you can buy locally in the Philippines:

Xiaomi Mi 9:

Xiaomi’s current budget flagship hits all the right spots when it comes to performance, features and image quality. This phone’s 48-megapixel shooter can produce really amazing shots in both low and bright light. The phone can be had for as little as Php 22,990 for the 6GB/64GB variant, though we recommend you opt for the slightly more expensive 6GB/128GB variant that retails for just Php 24,990.

Xiaomi Mi 9 SE:

OPPO F11/F11 Pro

Both versions of OPPO’s new F11 smartphones have high-resolution snappers, with the main difference between the two being the pop-up camera. The F11 Pro has a full-screen display without a notch thanks to that motorized unit, while the regular F11 has a typical waterdrop notch on the front.

Whatever version of the phone you get, you’re still getting a high-resolution 48-megapixel main shooter powered by Samsung’s GM1 sensor.

The OPPO F11 Pro retails for Php 18,990 (6GB/64GB), with the regular F11 going for just Php 15,990 (6GB/64GB).

The OnePlus 7 Pro also has a lot more to offer than just the camera: it has a great display, excellent performance (named the top performer in AnTuTu in May) though it’s a little more expensive this time around.

Coming soon/confirmed to arrive:

OPPO Reno/Reno 10x

The shark fin camera module isn’t the only thing that OPPO’s Reno smartphones have going for them. Both the Reno and the Reno 10x Zoom have Sony IMX 586 main shooters, and from what we can tell from our early hands-on time with both devices, the cameras produce really great images.

Both the Reno and Reno 10x are expected to make their debut this week.

Xiaomi Mi 9T

The Mi 9T isn’t official in the Philippines as of press time, but Xiaomi Philippines has been dropping serious hints that their new pop-up selfie-cam equipped mid-ranger is arriving soon. The Mi 9T is essentially a Redmi K20 for the rest of the world, and sports a 48-megapixel Sony IMX582 main camera in addition to a 13-megapixel f/2.4 ultra-wide-angle camera and an 8-megapixel f/2.4 telephoto lens with 2X zoom.

Samsung Galaxy A80

Samsung’s Galaxy A80 is one of the coolest phones we’ve seen from the company, thanks to its innovative, pop-up rotating camera. Because of the new motorized module, that 48-megapixel main camera acts as both the rear and selfie camera, so you get the same quality of photos in selfies as well as regular photos.

Samsung has announced that the phone will be arriving in the Philippines around June when it was announced a few months ago, but the company hasn’t officially announced a release date as of yet.
