Qualcomm: Samsung Galaxy S4 to offer 1080p video capture at 60 frames per second
So what is the deal here? Did Samsung inadvertently fail to reveal something on the Samsung Galaxy S 4 that no other smartphone ever has had? That would seem to be a stretch. So then, that would mean that Qualcomm, which probably knows the Galaxy S4 inside and out, mistakenly overstated the capabilities of the phone. Either situation seems hard to believe, but one of these theories has to be right.
We have a call in to Qualcomm, Stay tuned as we try to get to the bottom of this.

That's a typo - both HTC & Samsung would have made a big deal about it if 600 could support 1080p at 60 fps

Many speculation sources of Samsung said that S4 can capture 1080p@60fps (check xda)
People believe that only the Exynos variant can do it, but the model in Samsung unpack was Qualcomm only so they try to avoid mentioning it.
Like Multi-window is a great feature of Note 2, but it wasn't available at announcing time, so Samsung didn't mention it.

But Qualcomm said that S66 variant can do it also, so we can be sure that it's untested only. That's the reason why Samsung didn't say anything abt it in the Unpack event.

If the Snapdragon 600 supported 60 fps 1080p why wouldn't the Lg G pro and HTC one use it?

The HTC One does have 60 fps 1080p video.
The camera unit also features optical image stabilization and HTC's ImageChip 2 for HDR, 1080p and 60fps video.
The Optimus G Pro probably does as well

I don´t think so that HTC ONE is able to record 1080p
60 fps. But only 720p 60 fps.

In a typical Samsung fanboy style, you brought up some irrelevant XDA speculations. Read up the article again and it has nothing to do with Exynos.

I think You have a problem with your reading ability.
Read both my comments.
@HDShatter: who knows? XZ Camera is able to capture HDR video, so why s4 cannot?
11. dmn666 (Posts: 198; Member since: 19 Oct 2011)
You can think ? - I doubt it. Like I said, you put up a garbled hypothesis about exynos and that's just off-topic. Point is whether 600 can or can not support 60 fps 1080p. Nobody gives a crap if exynos can do it or not.
This is more reliable than the source blog post on qualcomm website written by some marketing dude. Keep on blabbering.

So I think I have to explain again.
At the beginning, I said that on xda there was a question that why on the spec paper of GS 4 Samsung mentioned abt capturing 1080p@60fps but on the S600 variant sample it can't. So they guessed that it is available in Exynos version only. Today Qualcomm said S600 can do it too, so that the lack of 1080 p@60fps on the sample is due to not finished testing.

LOL - just like I said it was a typo on the QC blog post. They've fixed it now.
Hey PA, be patient next time before putting up this kind of garbage post.

There are very few companies that will not reveal anything haven't been released to the public that haven't been fully tested. And Samsung is one of them. You do not want claim something that is made by another manufacture that will be intergrated into your products without fully tested. Even thou it's Qualcomm but it is still Samsung on the device it self.
Unlike some companies(hmmm rainbow) claims what their products can do that I they have so called revolutionize on their own and market. After sold so many it kick back cuz it does not work...full instance

Hopefully it's better than the jittery s3 and note two cameras

Gigantic wont be able to do anything with it, other than you tube unless you select a much lower resolution and degrade/pixelate the heck out of it.

Umm...didn't PA just do a S4 review? Couldn't you just test it and see? O_o

20. Razvannnn (Posts: 3; Member since: 25 Mar 2013)

Thats true i just saw the video. Play the video with HD quality & freeze it at 6:07 it's written in the specs note beside the phone "13MP AF Full HD (60 fps)"

Samsung doesn't need to reveal everything to beat their competition. It already has more than it's closest rival.
Besides, the unpacked event this time was way shorter. They didn't even mention the accesories this time like they did during the GS3 event. Don't act like they would mention everything if it was capable. They can't mention everything.
