Galaxy Note 8 Maintains 720p 240fps!

Galaxy Note 8 Slow Motion

As predicted the newly announced Samsung Galaxy Note 8 will not improve on the Note 7 or Galaxy S8 phones when it comes to slow motion capabilities. It maxes out at 1080p 60fps and only allows 720p 240fps for slow motion. Missing is the 120fps 1080p modes of competitive flagship phones like the iPhone 7 or Google Pixel.

The Phone has delivered in most other fronts however with probably the best screen yet on a phablet phone at 6.3″ Quad HD+ Super AMOLED (2960 x 1440) 521 ppi resolution. There is also an extra attention put on the battery safety which according to Samsung is not only safe but amply tested to rigorous conditions. It is 3300mAh which should last for a full day of use even with the gigantic screen.

Note 8 Samsung Official Slow Motion Sample:

As you can tell from the sample above, the quality is going to be identical to the Galaxy S8 camera module as they share the exact same specs. It is not bad in terms of quality but it is not class leading either. The camera is one of the best out there when it comes to noise suppression, low artifacts and good dynamic range so you really cannot fault the sensor and lens combination.

We wish Samsung would have improved on the slow-mo capabilities in their most flagship of phones but we will have to let that spec linger a bit longer. One thing going for it is that both camera modules offer stabilized lenses which can help during all video shooting sessions.

We will have more samples of the slow motion when available!
