Look like Samsung decide to follow Sony footstep into super slow motion camera feature for next generation Galaxy S9.

Earlier this year, Sony had introduced its 3-layer stacked CMOS image sensor enabled with a dedicated DRAM that can capture super slow-motion full HD videos at 1,000 frames per second. You can find these feature in Sony Xperia XZ1 and Xperia XZ Premium which had surpassed iPhone 7 Plus that supports slow-motion video shooting 240 fps..

South Korean media claims that Samsung is prepping the Galaxy S9 flagship with 1,000 fps image sensor. Back to conventional image sensor which are available on the existing smartphones have 2-layer structure that includes an image sensor and a logic chip.

Samsung Opto-Electronics has reportedly added DRAM module to the 2-layer structure instead of using 3-layer stacked CMOS image sensor, This probably due to void patent issues. By implementation of a DRAM allows temporary storage of data that will enable the image sensor to capture 1,000 fps slow-mo videos.

The South Korean company is expected to begin the mass production of the 3-layer image sensor in November which means it could be ready for use on the Galaxy S9.
