Samsung’s hard at work on the Galaxy S11, as you would expect, and that includes trademarking a few camera features its next flagship will bring to the table. Samsung has received trademarks for Single take and Video spin, both of which are classified as “downloadable and recorded computer application software for creating, editing, and saving of photography and videos” on smartphone cameras.
The Single take feature was already revealed earlier this month as a new camera feature Samsung is developing – it was discovered in the code for the company’s Camera app. Single take will allow you to “capture the scene in a series of pictures and short videos”; the user will have to pan the phone around for 15 seconds, and the camera will create a series of pictures and videos that they can check out in the gallery. It’s not known what Video spin will do, and, if we’re being honest, the exact purpose of Single take isn’t entirely clear, either.
There’s no evidence that these features will debut on the Galaxy S11, but that is probably going to be the case as the features aren’t included in the Android 10-based One UI 2.0 update for the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10. However, once the Galaxy S11 goes official, we can expect them to make their way to the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 via software updates, just like Samsung ported over Galaxy Note 10 camera features to the Galaxy S10.
