Exclusive: Galaxy S11 will be capable of 8K video recording

We have long advocated the idea that the Galaxy S11 needs to be a superstar in the camera department. Some of Samsung’s rivals have really upped their camera game so it’s about time that the Korean giant made some strides of its own.

All of the Galaxy S11 rumors that we have heard so far do suggest that it’s going to be a beast in the camera department. There’s also an expectation that it’s going to have support for 8K video recording. This is something that we can now confirm.

Galaxy S11 is capable of recording 8K video

Our sources tell us that the Galaxy S11 will indeed be capable of recording 8K video. The first hint about this possibility came when the Exynos 990 processor was announced. It’s the chip that’s going to power the Galaxy S11. It does have the capability of recording 8K video at 30 frames-per-second.

An APK teardown of the Samsung Camera app included in the fourth One UI 2.0 beta firmware had references in the code for 8K video recording. That was another hint about this feature’s chances for the Galaxy S11.

The Galaxy S11 is expected to feature a 108MP primary camera. One of the reasons why the Galaxy S11’s camera setup is codenamed “Hubble” is because it’s expected to support 5x optical zoom as well. The zoom camera is also going to have support for optical image stabilization.

Samsung isn’t due to unveil the Galaxy S11 until early next year. Chances are the company will go for an event in February. It’s certainly shaping up to be an exciting device for those who prefer Samsung’s Galaxy S series. We’ll be sure to bring you more information about the device as soon as we hear it.

If a device is capable of recording 4k or 8k video, it should also be able to transfer RAW data to the mass storage. I think it would be much more important because there is not much you can do with the high-compression MP4. Unfortunately, developments are not in this direction.

Samsung have claimed that the Camera on the S11 will be better than 4K and big enough to play on an IMAX screen.
And be able to crop video from the back of concert and see the artists face clearly.

That, I must see if in fact its the Huawei, apple, and pixel camera killer holy grail of the century.

8k won’t happen on devices for a year maybe.

If the phone has the hardware features, 108 MP camera (which is probably added for Pixel binning to reduce noise), capable CPU and Storage, then why not enable the feature. I don’t understand your reasoning! you sounds like a guy who defends Apple for their limitations
