Citing the latest report from foreign media SamMobile, it is confirmed from multiple channels and sources that the upcoming Galaxy S11 supports 8K video recording. The first evidence is that the Exynos 990 supports 8K video recording at 30 frames per second. As in the past, the Galaxy S11 will also use dual-processor sales. In addition to the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 version, its Exynos 990 processor will be equipped in some countries and markets.
The second evidence is the reverse disassembly of the Samsung Camera APK from the OneUI 2.0 Beta firmware, which does mention 8K video recording in the code. In order to achieve 8K video recording, the Galaxy S11 series is bound to be equipped with a higher pixel camera, so it seems that the Galaxy S11 series uses 100 million pixels. There should be no suspense. In addition, in the camera application, Max Winebach found a 20: 9 ratio display, suggesting that the Galaxy S11 screen aspect ratio may be 20: 9.
In addition to supporting 8K @ 30fps video shooting and 108 million pixel main camera, Samsung also prepared a lot of camera and video modes for the upcoming flagship mobile phones.
These modes are impressive and include Director’s View, Night Hyperlapse, Single Take Photo, Vertical Panorama, and custom filters.
The above camera functions are all obtained by reverse compiling the APK. It should be noted that although the contents of the decompilation indicate the functions that may be launched in the future, it does not mean that all functions will be launched in the future. This is because some functions may not be realized during the promotion process, and developers may cancel them at any time in future builds.
The first feature to be introduced is the Director’s View. It allows you to lock objects in the viewfinder and determine which object is closer to the photographer. In addition, this feature allows thumbnails to the left of the electrodes to switch between camera lenses. It sounds like Samsung will allow you to shoot from multiple camera lenses at the same time.
This is what the iOS app Filmic Pro does on the iPhone 11. You can record 1080p at 30fps on the iPhone 11 in both cameras at the same time. Director’s View sounds like Samsung will allow you to do something similar.
The next feature is Night Hyperlapse. Apart from the name and description, we can’t find more information about Night Hyperlapse, but it’s easy to understand what it means. It seems that it will enhance the night shooting based on the existing hyperlapse mode. The mention of keeping the phone still in the description sounds more like a Night Time-lapse mode than a Night Hyperlapse.
Single Take Photo
Next is “Single Take Photo”, which sounds like a cool feature. Using this mode, you can “start shooting scenes in a series of photos and short videos.”
You will need to move the phone slowly for 15 seconds and then take a series of photos and videos of the scenes around the photographer. This feature will prompt you to slow down when needed, or “Oh, you’re doing great!”.
This mode will also display a pop-up window with the words “Artist at work …” and “This is my best work …” After you have processed all photos and videos on your phone, you will be able to see what you just took Collection of photos.
Next is the vertical panorama. This is basically just taking a panoramic picture. Previously, it was usually horizontal, and the function was vertical. If you ignore the warnings and Samsung’s hint line and just pan the camera up and down, this can actually be done on Samsung phones. However, it’s good to see that Samsung is accepting this feature and incorporating it into the main panorama mode.
Samsung has added the ability to take your favorite photos and turn them into filters. Although we are not quite sure what this means, some aspects of the photo (such as saturation, exposure, and brightness) may need to be converted to filters. Samsung’s cameras currently actually support filters in aesthetic mode settings, but this can extend the functionality to more custom changes.
Samsung is developing many new features for its forthcoming smartphone that can extend existing features and make photography easier for everyone. Samsung also hopes to help professionals by gaining these features. Generally speaking, Samsung will port these features backwards compatible, so we will see these features in the Galaxy Note 10 series and S10 series.
