Or does it? It has been spotted on Samsung’s website (via PhoneArena) that the company is advertising the Note 8 as being able to shoot 4K video at 60 FPS, when in reality the phone at the moment is only capable of shooting 4K at 30 FPS. The caption you can see in the screenshot above reads, “Galaxy Note8 shoots 4K Ultra High Definition video at 60fps, so everything you capture looks stunning and vibrant.”
However like we said, the phone at the moment seems to be only capable of 30 FPS, which has us wondering if the caption on Samsung’s website is wrong, or if 60 FPS is a feature that Samsung has yet to enable for the phone and it is expected to come in a future update. The folks at PhoneArena noted that there is an update for the Note 8 that claims to bring some camera improvements, but apparently this doesn’t seem to do anything new for video, so if you do see that update maybe don’t get so excited just yet.
In any case hopefully Samsung will clear up this bit of confusion soon, but in the meantime 30 FPS isn’t such a bad framerate, so unless you’re a professional videographer that needs the buttery smooth 60 FPS, we reckon that most of you guys should get by with 30 FPS just fine.
