The camera on the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra was not perfect. In slow motion, the flagship loses to the younger Galaxy S21

Last week, Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21 + and Galaxy S21 Ultra smartphones, noting that the top flagship with the best camera is the Galaxy S21 Ultra. However, one moment remained behind the scenes, it concerns slow-motion photography.

The Samsung Galaxy S21 and S21 + smartphones support super slow motion video recording at 960 frames per second. And Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, which received an improved camera, does not have such support. More precisely, at the hardware level, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra records video at 480 frames per second, and then uses software algorithms to insert intermediate frames and increase the frequency to 960 frames per second.

At the same time, the owners of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra can record videos of 1 second, which, when played in slow motion, turn into 32-second videos. And on the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 +, the recording lasts 0.5 seconds, and the final video is 16 seconds.

Samsung commented on this information, stating that the reason is the larger image sensor of the Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra, which operates at a different shutter speed when recording video. Rather than artificially limiting the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 +, Samsung opted to give them full 960fps recording capability and use its frame rate conversion technology in the older model, arguing that the difference would not be very noticeable.
