Samsung Galaxy Note 8 update brings Super Slow-Motion and AR Emojis
by Cosmin Vasile / Sep 13, 2018, 12:55 AM
Samsung Galaxy S9 or S9+, you can capture 0.2s of 960fps videos, whereas the Galaxy Note 9 allows you to record 0.4s of 960fps videos, both at 720p. However, if you own any other Samsung smartphone, you can't capture slo-mo videos at all.
The good news is Samsung plans to add the Super Slow-Motion and AR Emojis feature to other smartphones as well, such as the Galaxy Note 8. XDA Developers reports that an update that brings the September security patch to the Note 8, also includes these two features too.
Apparently, the update is rolling out in France first, and from what information we've been able to gather, the two functions work the same way as on the Galaxy S9/S9+. Unfortunately, we don't have any details as to how the slo-mo videos on the Note 8 compare to those captured with the Galaxy S9/S9+ or Note 9.
- Display 6.3" 1440 x 2960 pixels
- Camera 12 MP / 8 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 835, Octa-core, 2350 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3300 mAh(22h talk time)

Good for Note 8 users, it may kill the Note 9 though

Why? Note 9 is still better in terms of hardware. No to mention it's really minor software upgrade, since seriously who cares for 0,2s video and emoji? 5yo? And those do not buy Note series anyway.

People who bought this year's models of Samsung S phones care... The hardware from Note 8 and Note 9 is minor and hardly noticeable. The main thing the Note 9 has going for it is a Bluetooth stylus and bigger battery but you're going to pay a grand for it while the Note 8 is now in the mid $500 range

So super slow motion videos is gimmicky now? Lol I bet the narrative would have been completely different if it was an Apple article.

I just installed the update. There is a button for the slow mode, and another one for the super slow mode.

"Perhaps the former wouldn't be gimmicky at all if Samsung wouldn't have included strict limits to how you can capture Super Slow-Motion videos..." The former isn't gimmicky at all, period. Just like readers of your articles make bandwagon comments, the authors of said articles also make bandwagon comments. Be a leader & not a follower. Oh wait, you like iPhones. Never mind.
