Earlier this month, Samsung announced a beta program update Android 10 for the Galaxy S10 series which includes the Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, and Galaxy S10e for users in South Korea, which further extended to other unlocked devices in the USA and possibly some other countries too. The beta gives an idea about some of the upcoming features that will make its way to the stable update, including features such as a dark mode for apps, focus mode within digital wellbeing, less intrusive alerts for calls and volume changes, and more. As it turns out, Samsung has also added in front-facing slow-motion videos in the update.
Recently, when Apple launched its latest iPhone 11, it made highlights for many reasons including its brand new invention – slofie feature. This enables users to record a very short video that is slowed down for playback. Although, this doesn’t seem to be a highly useful feature in video making who knows. Maybe in the future, people are going to use this more often. So far, people seem to love this feature. Android OEMs are also using the same functionality for their users. Samsung has achieved the same effect by including front-facing slow-motion videos in the latest UI 2 update.
In other words, it’s a camera feature that is bundled with One UI 2.0 Android 10 and not the standard camera update for older versions of the software. Although, the video recorded by Samsung Galaxy 10 shows off a bit of jitter through the video, since this is the first iteration of the feature, we can expect it to be improved with the release of the stable version of One UI 2.0. Much like the slow-motion video mode for the rear camera, there isn’t any option to customize the slow-motion before you begin recording. However, you can reduce the playback speed even further after you are done with the recording.
