According to the reputable leaker Ice Universe, the future Samsung Galaxy S23 would finally allow filming in 8K and 30 frames per second. On the S22, the frame rate in this definition is limited to 24 frames per second.
While the presentation of the Galaxy S23 could be held in February 2023, rumors and revelations about them are multiplying on the web. As you may know, we already know that the Galaxy S23 will mark their difference from previous generations with a brand new 200 MP photo sensor instead of the traditional 108 MP sensor.
Logically, the photo part will therefore go up a notch, and if we are to believe the latest information from the renowned leaker Ice Universe, the videography will not remain in the background. According to inside sources, the insider claims that the Galaxy S23s will be able to shoot in 8K and 30 frames per second. For comparison, the Galaxy S22 offers “only” 8K in 24 FPS.
Finally videos in 8K and 30 FPS on the Galaxy S23?
In other words, Samsung would therefore offer a 25% faster frame rate for 8K videos on the Galaxy S23. Enough to guarantee even smoother movements in your videos. Before getting carried away, however, it should be noted that this substantial improvement in frame rate is aimed primarily at videographers and YouTubers.
Indeed, ordinary mortals are more likely to opt for recording in 4K rather than 8K. And this for many reasons. First of all, 8K videos occupy a significant place on storage space your smartphone and exporting them to different platforms (social networks, YouTube, etc.) takes much longer.

Furthermore, 4K videos can be recorded at 30 or 60 FPS. And for some, it’s better to offer viewers a high framerate rather than better image quality. Despite everything, this addition, if confirmed by Samsung, will probably be viewed favorably by video professionals.
Moreover, it would also be appreciated if the manufacturer finally allows filming in 4K and 120 frames per second, at a time when more and more smartphones are carrying 120 Hz panels. For the moment, no Galaxy S22 offers this option. On this point, there is hope since we already know that the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, the SoC that will equip the S23, supports videos in 4K 120.
