8K and 4K videos from the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra posted on the web

Peter, 25 January 2023

Edwards Urbina has been snapping photos with a Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra days before the new flagship has been officially unveiled. Now he has moved on to showing off the phone’s improved video capabilities.

Here is a 4K 60fps sample uploaded to YouTube:

Unfortunately, this is the only one uploaded so far. Urbina has posted more videos on Twitter, but the social network doesn’t handle high resolution video so well.

Still, here is an 8K video sample recorded with the main 200MP camera (based on the new ISOCELL HP2 sensor). It has been compressed far too much to talk about image quality, but notice how smooth it is – the Galaxy S23 series is finally getting support for 8K videos at 30fps.

Update: That was quick - the tweets with the videos have been taken down.

Here’s another 4K at 60fps video:

The second video on Twitter was also recorded with the main camera. We’re not sure about the YouTube sample, however, that one looks zoomed in – it could be digital zoom or it could be one of the two telephoto cameras on the phone (3x and 10x).

While we’re here, check out these camera samples from the Galaxy S23 Ultra. They have been downscaled by Twitter, so we can’t enjoy the full detail captured by the 200MP sensor in this shot:

And here are two pairs of images that show off the 10x telephoto camera’s optical magnification and the same at 30x digital zoom:

The Samsung Galaxy S23 series (plus the Galaxy Book3 laptops) will be officially unveiled on February 1 (Wednesday). The three new smartphones have leaked extensively and over the last few days we even started seeing details about pricing. Spoiler alert: current info points to a price hike, so you may want to secure that pre-booking discount while you still can.

The 4k recording doesn't seems to be that great then again I know the phone is a prerelease product and will improve once it releases but the question is will it surpass iphone quality? We will see soon.

having dedicated 3.5 mm plug is much much much better, people can cable charge while listening high quality audio ... compare to wireless charging while listening bluetooth lossy audio or buy extra audiophile converter while the 1000 dollar phone alr...
