Samsung code hints at 8K video for Galaxy S11 smartphone

20 Nov

The team at XDA Developers has been doing its thing again and discovered several hints at new camera features, that are likely to make an appearance on the Galaxy S11 next spring, while digging into the code of the latest version of the Samsung camera app.

Among the hidden software features there are special modes called Director’s View, Single Take Photo and Night Hyperlapse as well as vertical panoramas, custom filters, and more.

Most potential S11 buyers will likely be more interested in the hints at 8K video, though. There is evidence that suggests the upcoming Samsung flagship will be capable of recording 8K footage at 30 frames per second.

We’ve already heard rumors about Xiaomi working on an 8K smartphone and Samsung’s top-end chipsets have supported 8K video for a while now. The same is expected from Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 865 chipset, so it’s unlikely the new Samsung will be the only 8K-enabled phone in 2020.

The APK-code also reaffirmed the use of a 108MP Samsung ISOCELL sensor in the primary camera which had been rumored previously. We’ve already seen some devices launched with this sensor, for example the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Pro, so the S11 launching with the same sensor, or an improved variant, would not be much of a surprise.
