Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will also record 1000fps videos, rumor claims

The latest gossip regarding the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus is here and it's a rather intriguing one. 

According to the rumor mill, the camera of Samsung's upcoming flagship phones will be capable of recording ultra slo-mo 1000fps video footage, similar to what Sony did with the IMX400-powered Motion Eye camera on its new Xperia XZs and Xperia XZ Premium (here's a demo of this one in action). However, it seems that Samsung won't be relying on a Sony sensor for the Galaxy S8's camera but will be relying on a custom solution.

Yet, it's only logical to assume that Samsung will be using a similar solution to achieve this - the Galaxy S8's camera will most probably sport an additional DRAM memory element between the camera's sensor and the circuitry of the image signal processor. Such a module is necessary for extreme slo-mo video recording due to the large amounts of data that the sensor captures, as these need to be stored somewhere before the ISP can deal with all the incoming information.

Aside from the rear camera, the same source that corroborates the rumor that the selfie snapper of the Galaxy S8 will be getting upgraded with autofocus. As a refresher, we expect this one to remain an 8MP shooter, but that won't be the only camera in the front - there will most definitely be a 3.7MP one that will scan your iris in order to unlock the phone.

That's just the tip of the iceberg, though: there are tons of other leaks regarding the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. Until those two get announced on March 29, we will have to resort to our numerous posts that explore the S8/S8 Plus in greater detail. Check them out below:

Ooohh... Sounds interesting. Hopefully this is true as it suggests all new(and hopefully better) camera hardware which I always love to see

Can anybody tell me what the hella that picture is? It looks like a bullet going through raw horse meat. Gross. Really bizarre choice of pics to show for this article PA!

I doubt it's horse meat. And you can tell it's been cooked, with the sear marks....but yeah, that is definitely a steak. Agreed, very bizarre and disgusting choice of pictures.

This is very interesting indeed, since the first time real slo-mo on a mobile phone appeared (mine was iPhone 5s at 128fps at 720p) I quite enjoyed making certain specific videos... 1000fps would be fantastic... but it's gotta be at least a 720p for it to matter...

500fps for 1080p, and 250fps for 4k

Nope it can "only" do 4k@120fps which is still an industry first on a smartphone but only the Exynos variant can do it.

While 6gb of ram is preferred, I wouldn't let that be a deal-breaker. However, I will say 6gb of ram is awesome. If you don't believe me, just check this vid out:

That's mostly due to the background app limit of 32 on the OP3. Trust me, in this speed test, OP3 wouldn't have been using more than 3-4GB RAM. As a OP3 user, i have never gone above 4GB RAM usage, even after loading the phone. Apps start reloading before it reaches 4GB and hence it never reaches 6GB. It actually depends on what you set the limit to. A 4GB phone with the limit of 48 will fare better than OP3 unless you load high memory games in RAM.

So you want to use 16gb ram in a couple of years. More ram doesn't mean Performance All we need is Optimization

He doesn't know more ram doesn't necessarily equalbetter memory if the so called RAM-management isn't any good.

its going to be one hell of a phone! onscreen FPS instead of back FPS would have made this phone an ultimate phone directly from the future!!

On-screen FPS will certainly come with the Note8, so chill bruh. The Note8 probably will be the "ultimate phone sent directly from the future".

18. Tyrion_Lannister unregistered

Rumors show that Samsung wanted that but the tech was immature yet. I guess we will see it in Note 8 or S9.
