Samsung’s flagship smartphones offer some of the best camera options with really powerful zoom capabilities. The next update may be an interesting Zoom Anywhere feature that will help with zoomed-in videos.
This is reported by The Verge.
With a 200-megapixel sensor, the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 processor, and the Qualcomm AI Engine, the smartphone will not only be able to provide 4x zoom during 4K video recording, but also track detected objects. Thus, the user will only need to point the camera in the right direction, and the device will track moving objects independently.
It will also be possible to zoom in and out at any point in the frame during recording, without the need for additional camera movements. The manufacturer emphasizes that it will be possible to “move” in any part of the frame, even if it is the extreme boundaries of the scene.
As the publication notes, this is not the first implementation of such functionality. Earlier, Honor 90 also demonstrated Solo Cut Mode, but this mode allows video recording in 1080p resolution only, while Samsung ISOCELL Zoom Anyplace will support 4K.
Samsung has also managed to speed up photo processing. The End-to-End (E2E) AI Remosaic technology will allow simultaneously performing the “remosaic” and image signal processing stages, which halves the photo finalization process and helps to obtain “richer details and colors.”
At present, the company does not say which smartphones will receive such capabilities in the near future. However, given the need for a 200-megapixel sensor and a flagship processor, it is not difficult to assume that it is the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra, which, according to the manufacturer’s usual announcement schedule, should appear early next year.
