[Update] Qualcomm releases the first 8K video shot with Snapdragon 865

04 February 2020
The 8K video was posted on YouTube and recorded landscapes in Arizona back in November.

Repeated post?

The new video is massively post processed. Look at the edges around foreground objects, like the cacti. Look at the excessive colour shifting on the edge the camera pans towards.
This is turning into a Nokia fake video debacle...

New video has improved bitrate. Now it looks much better

On a 6 inch screen it will looks exactly same like 4K video.
Only 2K video will looks better.
Better cntrast better details less lagg and not as this blurry.

They've made great strides towards efficiency and longevity over the old days of simply chasing numbers. And their dacs have come a long way.

Or just wait till you see 8k 60fps. Then it will be jaw dropping. Like when we saw 4k 30fps. Looked good. Then cam 4k 60fps. And thats awesome.

LOL my 8 year old SONY VAIO laptop cant play the video in 8K

Their DACs are equally low quality. The only thing Qualcomm is good for is the fake synthetic benchmarks they and Apple are obsessed with.
I NEVER use a benchmark app for anything in my life. I do use things like the camera, headphones and other things all the time.

I don't know whom at Qualcomm approved the posting of the "8k" video. It seriously looks love something recorded with a 50 buck feature phone.

Lol if you drop 10 fat g's on an 8K tv then you ain't gonna care about video from a smartphone....

useless feature. We want 4k @60fps with hdr and video stabilization. There is plenty of things to improve in 4k recording and unless you're planning to buy an 100 inch tv you won't need 8k. With almost perfect vision, on my 77 inch oled 4k display, i can't see the pixels even if i stand at 1m but normal view distance is 3-5 m

So, who watch the video in 1080p and complain?! Or 4k? And complain?
