Cell phones to record 8k @ 30fps by end of the year!!!

Quote:
As well as performance improvements, the Exynos 9820 includes two interesting functional improvements: 8K resolution video recording at 30FPS and five camera support.

8K recording is still rare but will become increasingly common in smartphone cameras in the coming years. It may be overkill for the Exynos 9820, though — 8K playback devices (like a TV, computer monitor, or smartphone) may still be niche throughout the time you’re likely to use an Exynos 9820 device (between 2019 to 2022 or so), and it may be expensive to include compatible sensors.

The five camera setup is likely to have an immediate effect, though, seeing as one (or more) of the Galaxy S10s may include this (three rear cameras and two front-facing cameras). Samsung has already experimented with a five-camera setup on the Galaxy A9 (2018) with four rear cameras and one up front, though this made use of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 chip rather than a homegrown Samsung variant.

On that note, many of us may not even encounter a Samsung smartphone with its Exynos 9820 chip, seeing as Samsung tends to favor Qualcomm’s Snapdragon chips for its flagship releases in the U.S. market. However, it may not be any great loss as the Snapdragon 855 will no doubt be comparable.

Samsung says it expects the Exynos 9 Series 9820 to enter mass production by the end of this year.

And it will still look like cellphone video even if you had an 8K monitor.

8K youtube videos should look a little better than 4K youtube videos on a 4K TV or monitor since the data rate is higher.

Joe, it will depend, among other things, on what the data rate is. You could, in theory, have a lower data rate with an 8K video than a 4K video. But yeah, if the data rates are higher and the camera quality is good, it should look a little better all other things being equal (which they seldom are). There are so many variables between the camera itself, the codec used, the data rate, the lens, the resolution...on and on it goes. Going simply from 4K to 8K only tells us the resolution will be greater, not the quality.

Stills only. The current best low light video on cellphones is the Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium. It uses two large-aperture cameras to gather more light and fuse the footage into one in real time. The image is useable but not great at ISO 25600 where nevertheless footage from other phones would normally turns into either a blob of darkness or dancing clumps of noise.

The Pixels use a fast multi-shot capture and remix the tiny sections in those frames into one single final frame. Impossible to do with video with the current sensor and image processor technologies.
