Samsung’s ongoing efforts to promote its latest flagship series – the Galaxy S7 – have now given us a new promotional video on YouTube, showcasing the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge’s camera capabilities in terms of 4K video recording. The video consist of a series of gorgeous 4K video samples captured with the Galaxy S7 series’ new 12-megapixel camera, stitched together to create a 1:15-minute long video of landscapes around the world.
The Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge are not the first Samsung smartphones to benefit from 4K video recording. That honor goes to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 launched in 2013, but nevertheless, it’s quite obvious that – for now, at least - the new flagship duo introduced at Mobile World Congress 2016 represents the pinnacle of 4K mobile video recording for the Korea tech giant. This is reflected in the new 4K video sample published yesterday by the official Samsung Mobile YouTube channel, showcasing the new 12-megapixel sensor’s prowess in a variety of environments and lighting conditions.
Although the Samsung Galaxy S7 or Galaxy S7 Edge may no longer need an introduction at this point in time – 3 months after their release – it’s worth reminding that the duo uses a new 12-megapixel camera with a 1/2.6-inch sensor, an f/1.7 aperture, 1.4-micron pixels, OIS (optical image stabilization), and DSLR-grade Dual Pixel Autofocus technology, which greatly contributes to capturing high-quality pictures and videos in poorly lit environments. Evidently, both the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge can record 4K (2160p) videos at frame rates of 30 frames per second, but can also capture 1080p videos at 60 frames per second, and slow-motion 720p videos at 240 fps. Technicalities aside, Samsung’s Research & Development division has spent a lot of time and energy into creating the Samsung Galaxy S7 series’ main camera as it is today, and you can read more about the thought process behind the module’s creation in one of our earlier articles.
