Director mode and video in 8K resolution: what will be the camera of the flagship Samsung Galaxy S11

Thanks to beta versions of One UI 2.0 proprietary firmware for Samsung smartphones, developers are learning more and more

information about the new flagship Samsung Galaxy S11. This time, details about the camera were found in the code.

What's new

So, in the Samsung Camera application appearedsupport for shooting video in 8K resolution, as well as mention of the 20:9 aspect ratio. Of course, the smartphone that will receive this “set” is not specified, but most likely it is the Galaxy S11, because previously it was credited with such a screen and a 108-megapixel camera.

Also, enthusiasts from XDA Developers found newcamera functions. The most interesting of them is Director’s View, that is, director’s mode. It will allow you to switch between different camera modules while shooting video (like the iPhone 11), “lock” focus on a specific object, and select a close-up.

Another feature is Night Hyperlapse. The code doesn’t say how it works, but most likely it’s the already existing Hyperlapse video mode, but with a night mode.

Vertical panoramas will also be addedand custom filters. And the Single Take Photo function allows you to capture a specific scene in a series of photos and short videos by slowly moving your smartphone over 15 seconds.

Let's remember that the Samsung Galaxy S11 flagships should be released in February next year.
