Lenovo ZUK Z2 Pro will have 960fps Video Confirmed!

Z2ProLenovo

This week’s announcement of the Lenovo ZUK Z2 Pro smartphone has been plagued with misinformation and spec sheets that were not complete.  We have received a full spec sheet for the phone now translated from Chinese that confirms the existence of 960fps video.

The phone will have 4k UHD video as well and a plethora of features that are completely new in smartphones like the ability to read wet fingerprints with it’s sensor and several health directed sensors like UV light, heart rate and blood oxygen which were also present in the Galaxy S6 last year.  The slowmo spec is the standout feature for us!

ZUK Z2 Back Camera Specs:

  • Rear 13 million effective pixel large 1.34 μm pixel, customize Samsung ISOCELL image sensor pixel barrier
  • OIS / EIS double anti-shake image stabilization technology
  • Aperture: f / 1.8 large aperture
  • FOV: 77.8 degrees (diagonal)
  • Focus range: 10cm to infinity
  • Qualcomm 14 Spectra ™ ISP
  • Color temperature LED flash
  • Blue glass infrared filter
  •  Video recording photo, face detection, panorama mode, Intelligent HDR, timer, Timelapse pictures
  • 960fps slow motion video Mode  (Unknown Resolution)

As you can see the 960fps slow motion mode is shown which probably means there will also be a 120fps and 240fps mode maybe even a 480fps intermediate step mode.  However resolution is not listed and for now even Lenovo Reps can’t talk about the quality of the video.  In our experience these phone specs usually are under-powered and full of artifacts built from interpolated frames and at this time we have no indication if it will be HD or FHD res.

What is ISOCELL Sensor by Samsung?

“Building on these past advances and continuing the push toward higher quality image sensors for mobile devices, Samsung has developed ISOCELL the next generation of pixel technology, which is patent pending. ISOCELL technology forms a physical barrier between neighboring pixels – isolating the pixel. This isolation enables more photons to be collected from the micro-lens and absorbed into the correct pixel’s photodiode minimizing undesired electrical crosstalk between pixels and allowing expanded full well capacity (FWC).

Compared to conventional BSI pixels, the ISOCELL pixels decrease the crosstalk by approximately 30 percent which results in higher color fidelity to reproduce the original color with sharpness and richness, and increase the full well capacity (FWC) by 30 percent which leads to greater dynamic range.

Additionally, an imager designed with ISOCELL can feature a 20 percent wider chief ray angle (CRA), reducing the height of the camera module. This makes it suitable for slim and small form factor mobile devices with challenging low z-height requirements. ”

Video Continued: Interpolation could be a way of achieving those 960fps video speeds with the phone from a 240fps initial source at even 1080p which would be impressive still.

  1. In Lenovo ZUK Z2 pro, the Galileo function is referred as : ( hardware support ) . What that means ? If the satellites are in operations, the smartphone will receive them without any other change ?
    Thank you for your answer.
