There have already been a lot of rumors and reports about the Galaxy S8 and today we’re hearing a new one. It’s about the upcoming flagship’s camera. The rumor claims that the Galaxy S8 camera will be able to capture 1000 frames-per-second videos. This might be one of the biggest updates that Samsung makes to the camera of its upcoming flagship smartphone.


All of the reports that we’ve heard about the Galaxy S8’s specs so far suggest that it’s going to have a 12 megapixel rear camera. Many are of the view that it’s the same camera that Samsung used with the Galaxy S7.

However, according to the report, the camera will receive several improvements. Samsung has reportedly added DRAM as buffer memory into the camera sensor itself. This would enable the device to record 1000fps videos.

This would be similar to what Sony has done with the Xperia XZ Premium. The 19 megapixel sensor in that handset uses a similar procedure to capture 960 frames-per-second slow-motion videos at 720p.

The report also suggests that the Galaxy S8 is going to have an 8 megapixel front camera with autofocus. A 3.7 megapixel RGB camera sensor for iris scanning is reportedly going to be on board as well.

None of this has been officially confirmed as this point in time and we can’t expect Samsung to confirm anything before the launch event. The Galaxy S8 will be unveiled officially on March 29.
