After Sony’s 1,000fps smartphone camera announcement earlier this year, other manufacturers are playing catch up. Sure, the new iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X shoot 1080p at 240fps, but it’s not 1,000fps is it? Samsung are hitting back, though. According to Etnews, the Korean electronics manufacter are now developing their own 1,000fps smartphone camera sensor.
It’s expected that this sensor will come in the next generation of Galaxy S phone. The design differs from Sony’s slightly. Sony positions the DRAM between the pixel and circuit sections of the sensor in a new 3 layer stacked CMOS configuration. Samsung, on the other hand, bonds the DRAM to a traditional 2 layer CMOS. This allows them to create the technology without infringing upon Sony’s patent.
