Better cameras are the name of the game with the newly announced Galaxy S20 smartphones. And, at long last, Samsung has introduced the option to record 8K videos with its devices. The Galaxy S20 and S20+ use the high-resolution 64MP zoom camera to capture highly detailed 8K videos, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra makes use of its 108MP primary camera to do the same.

But did you know that the stills you will capture from those 8K videos shot on a Galaxy S20 will have a whopping 33-megapixel resolution? That’s because while you can capture 4K video using a camera of a resolution higher than 10.7 megapixels, 8K videos require a 33MP camera. Basically, you will get images of a higher resolution by capturing a still from an 8K video on the Galaxy S20 and S20+ than you will get with the main camera on these phones. Crazy, right?
