Insiders familiar with the matter revealed that Samsung Electronics is going to begin mass-producing a new image sensor that can record up to 1,000 frames per second. This capability provides advanced slow motion recording to mobile devices.
Codrut Nistor,

Although Samsung's mobile camera sensors deliver impressive results, Sony's technology allows the handsets equipped with it to take impressive slow-motion footage. The image sensor currently used by Samsung's flagships uses a two-layer structure (sensor and logic chip), while the next-gen sensor to be manufactured by the South Korean giant also includes a memory chip that allows the camera to shoot up to 1,000 images in a second.

According to insiders familiar with this matter who spoke to ET News, Samsung will begin the mass production of the new image sensor in November. A test run of the new special equipment required to manufacture the 3-layer sensor is scheduled to take place in October revealed the same sources.

Unofficial reports claim that Samsung will use this new mobile camera technology in the next generation of Galaxy handsets. However, not all Samsung handsets use Samsung-made cameras. In the past, the company used Samsung image sensors for the devices released in South Korea but decided to go with Sony cameras for the models released in the United States.

Sony introduced the 3-layered structure in a commercial product earlier this year when they equipped the Xperia XZ Premium and the Xperia XZ1 with this new technology. Both handsets can record slow-motion footage at 960 fps. On the other hand, the recently unveiled iPhone X can shoot slow-motion videos at 240 frames per second using the ubiquitous full HD format. Remains to see if Samsung's new cameras hit the 1,000 fps barrier or not, but it might take a while until the details become official. In the meantime, you can enjoy the slow-mo capabilities of the Sony Xperia XZ Premium in the video below.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
