Samsung maybe planning something revolutionary with the upcoming flagships Samsung Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus. According to a new report by Android Headlines, the company may add a rear camera with embedded DRAM that can allow slow-mo recording up to 1000 frames per second.
This is not the first time that a smartphone is equipped with embedded DRAM in the rear camera, as Sony has been using this in their cameras and other products. Sony launched its flagship Sony Xperia XZ Premium with the same embedded DRAM technology giving it the ability to shoot slow motion video up to 960 frames per second.
According to the report, Samsung manufactures mobile DRAM for other OEMs and this will help the company in setting the benchmark for slow motion video capture.
Other addition that the company is planning to pack Galaxy S8 is with is a 3.7MP iris sensor. This is a bump from normal iris scanners, backing up the claims that it can perform its iris scanning and facial recognition capabilities in the upcoming flagship devices. Rumours indicate that Samsung will go with the tried and tested 12MP camera sensor for Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus.
This comes just days after the previous leak which pointed out that Galaxy S8 would arrive in two models. The standard Galaxy S8 would feature a 5.8-inch screen while the larger smartphone tagged as the Galaxy S8 Plus would come with a 6.2-inch display. Both displays would feature a WQHD+ resolution of 2,960 x 2,400 pixels and would also come with dual-edge curved displays.
