A few days ago, there were reports about Samsung working on multiple photo and video modes for its smartphones that will be released in the future.
Some of the new modes Samsung is planning to add in its 2020 smartphones include Night Hyperlapse, Vertical Panorama, Director’s View, Custom Filters and Single Take Photo.
Samsung has filed a couple of trademark applications in the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) yesterday for the terms ‘Single take‘ and ‘Video Spin‘. The classification for these trademarks is ‘Class 9’ which confirms that these are for Smartphones. There is also a mention of ‘editing and saving of photography and videos’ and ‘cameras for smartphones’ under Class 9, which again confirms that these are new photo and video modes that Samsung is supposedly working on. A recent report from XDA Developers confirmed the above-mentioned camera modes through a recent APK teardown.
With the ‘Single Take’ photo mode, users can shoot for 15 seconds and slowly turn the phone around to capture multiple pictures and videos. As you move the phone, you would be seeing messages displayed on the screen like ‘Keep it steady’, ‘ Oh, you’re doing great’, ‘ Pan around slowly’, ‘Now, some great stuff here’, ‘Artist at work’ and so on. These are just some of the possible messages and there are many such messages. Once you finish shooting, your phone will process the data it captured and you will be presented with a collection of what you clicked.
‘Single Take’ photo is just one of the many amazing modes. Custom Filters will let you click a picture and make it a filter. Vertical Panoramas will let you click a panorama but in a vertical direction. Night Hyperlapse and Director’s View also do offer various attractive features while clicking photos. However, we don’t have much information about ‘Video Spin’ mode yet.
We can expect all these features to be added in upcoming Samsung phones that will be released in the year 2020. Though some of these could possibly make it to the mid range phones in the Galaxy A-series, we can expect most, if not all, of the features to be present in the flagship Galaxy S11 smartphone that will be released during mid-February next year.
