Galaxy S10 to have OIS and [email protected] video recording on front camera?

You wouldn’t expect any major surprises about an upcoming flagship so close to its official launch, but that’s exactly what we’re getting today. Some users on Weibo have apparently said that the Galaxy S10’s front camera will get optical image stabilization (OIS) and support for recording 4K videos at 60 frames per second (fps). While OIS on front cameras isn’t new, there isn’t any phone on the market that can take 4K videos at 60fps with the front camera. And, well, there isn’t any phone that has both OIS and [email protected] support in the front camera.

This is one of those rumors you find hard to believe, and the Weibo link for this particular rumor isn’t mentioned on the website that is citing Weibo as the source. But could these features actually be available on the Galaxy S10? Well, going by how big that front camera cutout on the Galaxy S10 is looking in leaked live images of the device, it would certainly be nice if the front camera has a few extra tricks up its sleeve.

Even the rear camera is reportedly going to have GoPro-level image stabilization, but since we’ve not heard anything on this front before, it’s best to file this rumor in the “that’s not happening” cabinet. Again, such camera upgrades would be welcome, especially for the selfie camera since it’s going to be an eyesore (particularly on the S10+, which has dual front cameras), and whether that will actually be the case is something we’ll find out soon enough.

I’d rather have 4K @ 120FPS & FHD at 960FPS

They do need to seriously upgrade the front camera. Believe they have been using the same unit since s7. Ois will be something I would want

S7edge using 5mpx selfie camera. S8 onwards using 8mpx selfie camera.

The cut out isn’t for me. I’ll be sticking with Note9 until that hole is history. But for selfie takers it’s certainly a very good option. I don’t take selfies ever so no selfie camera at all and a big full beautiful uninterrupted screen would be absolutely perfect for me. However I’m in the minority here! 🙂

Same, I almost never use the front facing camera. A popout solution build into the frame to allow full screen without cutouts is going to be perfect for me as I will use it 50 times in the whole life cycle of that phone. So, each on it’s own on that one, I guess.
