Samsung’s Galaxy S9 will record 1080p at an amazing 480fps!
Where's the pre-order button?!
Most Android phones top out 1080p recording at 60fps. Things are a little clearer on Apple’s side, as the latest iPhones max out at 1080p at 240fps, making it a clear winner. Snapdragon had a lot of catching up to do, and then Samsung entered as a dark horse with its ISOCELL Bright camera sensors, which can do 1080p recording at a whopping 480fps!
For context, 1080p video at 30fps is the most common viewing habit of consumers. so this is technically 16x smoother. While perceivable differences between 240 and 480 fps are negligible, it gives creators a lot of room to play around with slow motion in post production. Though a big question arises, as pointed out by GSMArena, that how long will these videos be? Probably not much higher than a couple of seconds (Sony’s Motion EYE can do 960fps. but for less than a second). Isn’t it exciting to see how far mobile processing has come?
This new series of image processors also feature DualPixel Autofocus with Super Phase detection, for superfast and smooth focus pulling. The super slow-mo can be attributed to a 3-stack Fast Readout Sensor. Lastly, the bigger S9+ will also feature a dual camera setup, which should bring in a lot more flexibility in terms of zooming. The pixel size could get bigger (or become variable, to play around with clarity v/s Light sensitivity) and we can expect this to be the best camera package of its time, as the trend has been… We are almost sure this tech will debut on the Samsung Galaxy S9, and raise the bar.
