Samsung Galaxy S8 Leaks Again In Black, Has Camera That Can Shoot 1000 FPS

Super slow-mo on a smartphone

The launch date for Samsung’s Galaxy S8 is getting closer, but the leaks aren’t slowing down. On the contrary, today we have two new leaks for Sammy’s upcoming flagship smartphone: a look at the black version of the device, and information on the camera’s slow-mo video performance.

The Galaxy S8 is expected to launch in a couple of new colors, which include the ever present black model. Live, leaked photos have surfaced of the black model, and while it doesn’t show us anything that we haven’t seen before (that large 5.8-inch panel still looks good) it does confirm most of the leaked information and aligns with what we’ve heard so far.

The next leak is potentially the most interesting one, in where the Galaxy S8’s camera can allegedly shoot super slow-mo videos.

The camera will still be a 12-megapixel unit, but Samsung allegedly added DRAM to act as buffer memory to the camera sensor itself to shoot 1000 FPS videos. This is a similar technique that Japanese maker Sony used in their Xperia XZ Premium and its 19-megapixel camera sensor.

Additionally, the Galaxy S8 will also come with a 3.7-megapixel RGB camera sensor in addition to the 8-megapixel front camera for iris scanning.
