All Galaxy S20 phones come with a 5-minute 8K video recording limit

13 February 2020 0

Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2020 event has made us learn all the positives about the new Galaxy S20 series. This majorly includes the cameras and its interesting features and some perks that have been made possible with Samsung’s partnership with Netflix and Google.

Launch events, however, majorly touch the upgrades, by boasting about the features and capabilities of new products. And the specific details can only be discovered with a regular usage or if you are using them for a review purpose. This is just what happened in the case of the Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20 Plus, and the Galaxy S20 Ultra 5G.

One of the main highlights of the new Galaxy S20 series is the ability to shoot videos in 8K to offer a lot of detail. They are so detailed that you can even capture 33MP stills from them. But here’s a limit that Samsung didn’t talk about on stage. The 8K video recording requires a lot of processing and it also takes up to 600MB of storage space so Samsung has limited 8K recording to only 5 minutes on all three Galaxy S20 phones. Well, the adjustment makes sense and there is nothing to be complained about. The 5-minute is fairly a good length and it gives you enough time to record your favorite moments.

Storage won’t be a major concern if you are purchasing the 512GB storage variant of the Galaxy S20 Ultra or the Galaxy S20 Plus. In fact, if the onboard storage is not sufficient, the phones support the microSD cards up to 1TB to store additional files.

Another limitation is shooting the 8K recording at only 24fps, even when both the Snapdragon 865 and Samsung’s own Exynos 990 chips support 8K videos at up to 30fps.
