We were very surprised when we saw the features that will be sported on the Samsung Galaxy S4, which were posted by chip maker Qualcomm on its official blog. There were several features presented, but one of the caught everyone’s attention. Qualcomm was saying that the new 13 megapixel camera boasted by the Samsung Galaxy S4 will able to record full HD video at 60 frames per second.
While this feature would have been one of the major attractions of the Galaxy S4 as no other smartphone us currently capable of capturing 1080p video at that frame rate, why did Samsung not say anything about it at the unpacked. A feature like this would clearly have been worth mentioning, don’t you think?
We were not sure whether Samsung was cocky enough to not talk about the feature and let the users discover it by themselves or Qualcomm made a boo-boo with its post. Unfortunately for us, this is Qualcomm’s bad. The chip maker late admitted that a mistake was made when one of the officials got to talk to the guys at Phone Arena. It looks like the person who wrote the article on Qualcomm’s blog had mistaken the number of FPSs of the video that will be recorded by the Galaxy S4, and in fact the smartphone video recording capabilities will be similar to the ones of most nowadays flagships, meaning 1080p video at 30 frames per second.
To be honest, I’m pretty disappointed about this, I really hope that those Galaxy S4 features were true, even though it was hard to believe.
Anyway, the day when a smartphone will be able to record full HD video at 60fps will come sooner or later, but we hope it will be soon. What phone maker do you guys thing will launch such a device?
