With last year's Samsung Galaxy S20, Samsung first introduced the ability to record video at 8K resolution, a feature that other manufacturers have decided to copy in their flagship terminals for that same year. Now, Samsung has included this same option in the Galaxy S21 and Galaxy S21 Ultra.

If you have just bought a Galaxy S21 and want to learn how to make the most of your camera while recording, today we will explain you step by step how can you record video with resolution 8K with your Galaxy S21, S21 + or S21 Ultra.



The Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra allows you to capture videos in 8K resolution.

capture 8K video with your Galaxy S21, you must first perform a series of steps on your mobile phone camera. The process is simple:

  1. Open the camera app of your Samsung mobile.
  2. Tap the "Video" section of the carousel at the bottom.
  3. In the settings bar at the top, tap on the link to select the resolution and frame rate of the video.
  4. Choose the “8K 24” option.
  5. Start recording video.

Once you've finished capturing the video, it will be saved in your gallery like any other clip captured with the camera and you can play it back without any problem. Please note that i 8K videos take up more space di Archiving than those with lower resolution and since the Galaxy S21 does not include microSD expansion, you will have to check the size of your videos well to avoid surprises.



It is worth mentioning that the 8K video capture function is available on all three models of the Galaxy S21 family. In the S21 and S21 +, the 64 megapixel sensor, while in the Ultra model the 108 megapixel sensor is responsible for capturing video at this resolution. Therefore, there may be some differences in the quality of the final result.



It is also useful to indicate that the 8K recording is limited to 24 frames per second, so if you want to capture smoother videos, you will have to resort to one lower resolution.
