iPhone 8’s Rear And Front Cameras To Support 4K Video Recording
According to code strings uncovered from the HomePod firmware by Brazilian, iPhone 8 might be the first smartphone to come with the capability of capturing video in 4K resolution at a sixty frames per second smoothly in both front and rear cameras. Strings in the firmware shows that both the front and rear cameras of iPhone 8 will be able to capture 4K video resolution at sixty frames a second, as evidenced on the screenshot below.
However, many of you know that the video capture in 4K resolution is just stopped at thirty frames per second. The currently high-end devices such as Samsung’s Galaxy S8, or HTC 11 are only capable of capturing at this frame. If this information is true, iPhone 8 will then become the first smartphone to support this feature.
Coming back to the past two years, the strings in iOS 9 code indicated at the time that the FaceTime camera would add the features like panoramic mode and Slo-Mo video capture at 240FPS, which is never possible.

So if iPhone 8 is inherited the ProMotion display from the new iPad Pros, the 60FPS videos will look very impressive on a high-resolution Retina display at the insane rate of 120Hz. Additionally, you can also enjoy your 4K 60FPS videos on a big screen via Apple TV, for instance. And if you’re worried about the quality of the file size, don’t be nervous as both iOS 11 and macOS High Sierra pack support for High-Efficiency Video Coding (HEVC), which is usually known as H.265.
Back to three and a half years ago, H.265 supports compressing 4K video with a larger set of colors at half the file size on the H.264 codec, which is currently used on Apple devices.
