If your phone can shoot with and without stabilization it's so easy to see the details in the background smudging and blending in like they are not there. The best example would be something made out of planks or panels that have gaps in between, as you pan your phone those gaps will completely disappear while they will not disappear when you shoot without stabilization. Try it yourself. Phone video stabilization is just weak software solution, all of that OIS talk on video in phones is marketing garbage, it's all software limited by the processing power of the chipset.

But that's beside the point. Point is that if FHD video recording had the same bitrate of UHD video recording it would yield better results in every aspect including upscale to UHD. Have you ever played 1080p movie on BD and wondered how come it looks better than Netflix 4K? That's what I'm talking about.

>>No they don't, this is not some phone claiming to give you 50mp from 13mp sensor using oversampling.

>>Won't provide much detail over 12mp binned mode but it does output in 108mp without oversampling.

That is all you need. Since physical sensor size is 108mp not 12mp, 8k is achievable.

Why do you make excuse for Sony not giving 120hz out of the box?

It will give same amount of details compared to native 12MP of same size.
There are devices with 48 that does not even offer 48, just 12.

Cards are almost as fast as emmc memory.
There is no excuse.
Also many flagships have had 128GB since 2016/17.
Apple does not have sd slot, but they dont put limits.

My xperia does 4K30 at 52Mbps.
30 min does not even use 15GB.
This for H264.
H265 decreases the size.

Apple, Samsung, Google, LG etc uses lower bitrate, so file is even shorter.

We can only expect improvements.

Why it so hard to think that if a sensor already does 6k@30fps, it's successor won't bring improvements?
You seem jealous that Sony couldn't do it first.

While phones barely reach 70.

It is about heat. Recording 4K is much harder for the hardware than playing games.
Also it is a way to proctect the sensor against the heat.
Liquid cooling or heat pipes will drain heat from cpu, cant help the image sensor.

Dont have illusion that in so short time another one much stronger would show up. Especially from Samsung that has weaker imaging division compared to Sony.

2) it is not native 108MP. It is made to work at 12MP.

3) if s20 and s20+ cant do 8K, Samsung would not give to Ultra only.

-No details lost.

You must be using poor budget phones for 4k recording.

None of the phone manufacturers can do 4K video recording properly. Every single video either exhibits lack to detail due to super intrusive stabilization or super jitteriness when stabilization is turned off (on some you don't even have that option) and then on top of that they all drop frames left and right when things heat up. So what do manufacturers do in this case to sell you 4K? They downgrade bitrate on 1080p video recording so 4K could look rich in detail and of course they sharpen it tad bit more as well. It's all software trickery for purposes of marketing.

Shooting 4K requires a lot of light compared to FHD and software tries to compensate for it and it's beyond obvious. They could give us high bitrate FHD video recording that has more native details going through lens than on 4K video but that would kill 4K as a feature.
