Galaxy S9 could sport an in-house camera sensor that’s capable of shooting at 1,000 fps

Home / News / Galaxy S9 could sport an in-house camera sensor that’s capable of shooting at 1,000 fps

Samsung is working on a camera sensor that’s capable of shooting at one-thousand frames per second (fps) to rival the one on board the Sony Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ1 Premium, according to a new report published by ETNews.

The sensor is expected to enter mass production in November, leaving plenty of time for it to be included in the upcoming Galaxy S9, which could be launched as soon as January, if recent leaks and rumors are anything to go by.

Sony designed, patented and manufactured its own triple-stacked sensor to shoot at one-thousand frames per second on the Xperia XZ1—so Samsung can’t go down the same route. It needs to take a different approach, like a double-stack setup.

Aside from a shiny new sensor, which we believe will be squeezed into a dual-camera configuration à la Galaxy Note 8, the Galaxy S9 is rumored to sport a 5.8-inch Infinity Display, a Snapdragon 845 CPU and an in-display fingerprint sensor.

As we’ve said in the past, it’s too early to say whether the handset will ship with a bezel-less edge-to-edge screen like the Essential Phone, but seeing as Apple is headed in that direction with the iPhone X, it certainly seems likely.

For me the camera is lacking in the Galaxies of this year. Not even 1080p slow motion, now Apple have 240fps at 1080p! I’d take that over 1000fps at 720p – which is what its likely to be. and I’d welcome 4K at 60fps too. but they need to something better with their cameras if they’re pricing them at £800+. Also, do not like the 4:3 aspect ratio of the highest MP count.

supposedly the note 8 is capable of shooting 4K at 60fps but is disabled

no in-display fingerprint sensor for the S9 … this will come only with the Note 9

Is this a guess, hunch, or based on inside information that you have been made privy too?

A few sites have posted it, said that Samsung feels no need to rush and add it to the S9 since Apple was not successful putting it in the Iphone X like planned. Wants to perfect and used as a big selling point for the Note 9.
