Hidden code reveals that Samsung is working on camera modes such as ‘Director’s View’ and ‘Night Hyperlapse’
Hidden code reveals that Samsung is working on camera modes such as ‘Director’s View’ and ‘Night Hyperlapse’ that can be rolled out in future phones
- Samsung is working on various new camera modes according to hidden code
- Modes include “Director’s View” that allows users to switch between lenses
- A ‘Night Hyperlapse’ brings time-lapse options to institutions in low light
- It is unclear when or whether the functions will be rolled out on telephones
Samsung is working on various new camera modes that may be included in future phones according to code discovered by XDA developers.
Researchers analyzing code in Samsung devices say they have discovered evidence of various budding modes, such as “Director’s View,” which allows users to switch between different lenses on their phones and also “lock” them on a subject they record, keeping them in focus.
XDA suggests that the function will also work in the same way as the Filmic Pro of the iPhone 11, which allows users of two different phone cameras to record at the same time.
New camera modes would take phones like the Galaxy Note 10 from Samsung (pictured above) to a new level and some features of Apple’s flagship, the iPhone 11 Pro, parrots
The idea is that – with multiple iPhones – the function can someday be feasible to record professional multi-cam video.
XDA also found evidence for a ‘Night Hyperlapse’ mode which, although there was not much additional information, suggests that users could use its existing ‘Hyperlapse’ function to make time-lapse videos in low-light situations.
Night Hyperlapse can also be supplemented with a ‘Single Take Photo’ mode that allows users to pan their cameras from left to right while the camera takes multiple photos and short videos.
Once compiled, XDA says that users can view the range of videos and photos they have just taken.
Finally, XDA says it has uncovered evidence of a feature called “Custom Filter” that allows users to “select a photo that you like from your gallery and then save it as a filter.”
Although it is unclear exactly how this particular mode would work, details discovered by XDA suggest that it can mimic the functions of another photo and apply it to other photos.
For example, if someone likes the color, saturation, brightness, and contrast of a previously taken photo, they can use “Custom Filter” to apply the same settings to a photo that is taken afterwards.
According to XDA, it is not entirely clear whether the functions actually find their way to phones, despite the existence of code with which Samsung could activate the function.
