The Samsung Galaxy S20 series marks thevery first time we see 8K recording on a major smart device line(bar the Red Magic 3), offering a rapid increase in detail compared to standard 4K videos.This quality increase will have ramifications for storage however, as Samsung states (through SamMobile )8K video will consume 600MB of storage per minute. By comparison, 4K/30fps video on a contemporary phone varies from 200MB to 350MB per minute
, depending on a variety of elements( bit-rate, format etc).8 K frames are 33MP in resolution, while 4K frames are approximately 8.3 MP. We were bound to see a big boost in file size with the dive in resolution either method, but the introduction of the high performance video codec (HEVC) can help avoid file sizes from blowing up even more.
SamMobile Reports that 8K recording will be limited to 5 minutes per clip on the Galaxy S20 series, most likely due to issues over heat. We saw a comparable circumstance with the transition to 4K in the early 2010s, as earlier Samsung flagships imposed a 5 minute cap on specific clips too. Sony phones, nevertheless, would shut down the recording and even the phone itself when the device temperature struck a certain point.Either way, you can
expect 8K video to take in roughly double the storage compared to 4K at least. Luckily, Samsung’s Galaxy S20 phones all feature 128GB of expandable storage as the bare minimum.Do you believe 8K recording is a must-have feature on flagship phones in 2020? Offer us your answer listed below.
