Specification leaks of the Samsung Galaxy S8 have told us everything there is to know about the device. Given that most rumors have been confirmed by numerous reports, can Samsung still throw us a surprise? Turns out, the South Korean tech giant indeed can.
Starting with the rumors themselves, it needs to be pointed out that among the most widely speculated features of the device was the inclusion of 1,000 frames per second slow-motion recording facility. This feature would have given the Galaxy S8 a distinctive edge, as CNET described.
"A 1,000fps video frame rate would leave other flagship phones in the dust -- that'd be over eight times faster than the iPhone 7, which records slow-motion 1080p video at 120fps (and 720p video at 240fps). It would also surpass the Sony Xperia XZ Premium, which shoots slow-motion video at a max of 960fps."
Recording at 1,000 frames per second can help see details that captures at lower frame rates cannot show. A high rate capture gathers more images than a low frames-per-second recording. Slow-motion capture is extensively used while filming stunts or adventure sport and if included in the Galaxy S8, could have endeared the phone to the enthusiast.
