Samsung Galaxy S8 expected to come with 1000 fps video mode

DPReview.com - Latest News - Fri, 03/17/2017 - 1:23pm

The launch of Samsung's upcoming flagship smartphone Galaxy S8 is only a couple of weeks away and if the rumors are to be believed the new device's 12MP camera will offer a 1000 fps video mode that would allow for a 33x super-slow-motion mode. 

That is more than four times slower than the 240 fps slow-motion mode in the current Galaxy S7. According to a report by SamMobile, Samsung is integrating an additional DRAM layer into the image sensor which acts as a buffer. This sounds like very similar technology to what Sony is using in the recently announced Xperia XZs and XZ Premium devices which offer a 960 fps slow-motion mode at 720p resolution. However, SamMobile's sources claim Samsung is not using the Sony sensor in the S8. Unfortunately at this point there is no information about resolution or maximum recording duration of the mode. 

Other camera-related information includes an 8MP front camera with AF and 3.7MP additional image sensor that is used just for iris scanning. It appears Samsung will not follow the dual-cam trend with its upcoming models but the super-slow-motion mode, if well-executed, could definitely make up for a lack of dual-cam features.
