OnePlus announced shortly after the launch of its 7T that the device received support for video recording at 960fps. For a long time, it remained silent, until the feature suddenly appeared in a beta update. Presumably, OnePlus uses ‘frame interpolation’ to make it possible OnePlus 7T can now record video at 960 frames per second.
OnePlus 7T series
OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro use the same 48 MP sensor from Sony, the IMX586. Sony basically supports slow-motion video shooting at up to 480fps (frames per second). However, OnePlus had promised that the 7T would receive an update with support for 960 frames per second slow-motion video. According to Redditor u / sneakerspark , the function has been added to the third OxygenOS Open Beta. Activation of the slow-motion video is possible through a separate menu, where users could still choose between 480fps (720p) and 240fps (1080P).
Slow-motion video will now work at up to 960 frames per second
As stated, the Sony IMX586 sensor does not support 960 frames per second. It is not so much a limitation of the camera sensor, but a general limitation of memory in your phone. To shoot slow-motion video at 960 frames per second, the sensor must have a memory buffer to which video files can be temporarily written. Although there are camera sensors with this buffer, they do not contain the functions of the 48 MP sensors, such as the quad-Bayer function to ‘take better photos with less lighting’.
In the third Open Beta update, OnePlus would also test 4K video at 30 frames per second on the wide-angle lens, a feature it has also been promised after launch. XDA-Developers was allowed to receive a personal answer from the user, in which the user confirms the position. Earlier, the OnePlus 7 Pro received the function in advance; on the OnePlus 7T Pro, the function has also been added before. When OnePlus plans to roll out the new video functionalities to everyone is unknown. Are you waiting for the positions? Let us know in the comments below the article.
