The Galaxy Note 8 is the most powerful phablet ever made by Samsung. But, about two weeks after its only release, Apple has announced the new iPhones that already have one more feature: recording videos from 4K to 60 fps. As we have seen, Note 8 does not have this capability.
Of course, most users will not even miss such a feature. But for those who would like to enjoy superior video recording and abuse of slow-motion effects, here’s some good news: the Zero Camera Mod for phablet enables capturing QHD videos at 60 fps.
Quad HD is still one step below the 4K (which is also called Ultra HD). It is also known as 2K. The resolution is 2560 x 1440 pixels (vs. 3480 x 2160 of the 4K). The frame rate, however, is sufficient for takes in slow motion, since it gets to capture two more frames every second.
This keeps iPhones 8, 8 Plus and X as the only capable of capturing videos in 4K at 60 frames per second, among smartphones, of course. There are DSLR and DSLM cameras with this capability, though they all cost a fair amount of money – which also applies to the iPhone, but at least it has other features besides the camera.
Unfortunately, however, the mod only enables this feature in Note 8 with Exynos inside. There are several other features that are released for both this version and the version with Snapdragon 835. But it is necessary to make a root in the device to install. See the complete list:
For Note 8 with Exynos and Snapdragon
- HDR for 4K / QHD videos
- Autofocus tracking for all modes
- No time limit for recording
- Increased Bitrate
- Increased JPEG quality for single or sequential captures
- Installs the latest camera review
- Video effects for 4K modes
- Removes the flash lock with less than 15% battery
- Video from 2K to 60 fps
Google Play app unique features
- Removes the 4GB limit for videos
- Adjusts the sharpness of the photo border and DeNoise settings (only for Exynos for now)
- Shutter speed adjustable for more than 10 seconds
- Choose your own standard gallery
- Customizable bitrates for 1080p @ 30fps, 720p and 1: 1
You can install the Zero Camera Mod in two ways: via TWRP or by paying for an app in the Play Store. For both, it is necessary to enable root, which, it is always good to remember, voids the warranty of your device. The app in the store costs $3.99.
