Framerate purists should be satisfied by the Samsung Galaxy S23’s video capabilities

Samsung’s top phones have cameras that are competitive with those found in the Pixel and iPhone. While we were thrilled by the Galaxy S22 Ultra’s camera, we anticipate even greater things from Samsung with the Galaxy S23. We hope that the 2023 flagship will provide the ability to capture 8K videos at a framerate even greater than before.

While purists of the cinematic may appreciate the aesthetic of 24 frames per second, most of us prefer the somewhat more fluid 30 fps for our own video productions. A higher framerate may not seem like much on paper, but it typically results in a smoother-looking video.

That the latest Galaxy S22 models can capture 8K video at 24 frames per second is no minor achievement for a device tiny enough to fit in a pocket. However, reputable leaker Ice Universe claims that the forthcoming Galaxy S23 would support 8K video recording at 30 frames per second. Even though 8K content and displays are still in their infancy, we appreciate the option of filming in 8K whenever possible.

Recording at a greater frame rate will increase the storage requirements of already massive 8K movies. Be sure to acquire a device with enough of capacity if the prospect of shooting 8K footage has sparked your curiosity. If you don’t need the extra resolution of 5K, your Samsung Galaxy flagship can still capture flawless 4K movies at 120 frames per second.

The next Galaxy S23 series will include significant upgrades to Samsung’s photography technology. The Ultra model from 2019 might blow people’s minds with a whopping 200MP resolution using an unreleased ISOCELL HP2 sensor. That’s a significant improvement over the existing 108MP sensor, and a purported sample of a shot taken with the Galaxy S23 Ultra has already been made available to the public. More details regarding the Galaxy S23 phones and its cameras are expected to emerge as we approach their rumoured release date in February 2023.
