Samsung will be stepping up their smartphone camera technology big time with a planned sensor capable of super slow motion at 1000fps.

The tech is called a “3-layered image sensor,” and production will begin in October, with mass production beginning in November. The sensor is meant to compete with Sony’s IMX300 which is used in the Xperia XZ and can also do 1000fps.

Some of the uses of slow motion include:

  • Sports, to capture and display key moments of games and matches
  • Natural phenomena, for example, when a drop of water hits a glass, or the effect of a bullet hitting a target
  • Artistic effect to create a romantic or suspenseful ambiance

What enables this incredible framerate in both Sony’s IMX300 and Samsung’s upcoming sensors is the DRAM chips which enable temporary data storage.

In contrast to Sony, who uses thermal compression to create their 3-layer sensors, Samsung will use TSV tech to sidestep issues of infringing on Sony’s patents. At the moment, Samsung sensors use 2-layer sensors in their flagship models.

At this point, it is unknown which models will receive the new 1000fps technology, but we can assume it will be at least in the Galaxy line in 2018.
