The HUAWEI 7680 FPS + ISO 25600 Video Showcase!

The HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro has two spectacular video recording features – the ability to capture ultra-slow motion video at 7680 fps, and ultra-low light video at up to ISO 51200.

Here is EVERYTHING you need to know about both features, and our video showcase!


The HUAWEI 7680 FPS + ISO 25600 Video Showcase!

HUAWEI shared with us two short videos to showcase the Mate 30 Pro‘s ability to deliver 7680 fps ultra-slow motion video, as well as ultra-low light video recording at ISO 25600.

Together with two additional videos they released earlier, we created this video showcase of their 7680 fps and ISO 25600 video recording samples.


How The HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro Delivers 7680 FPS Video!

It would be impossible for a human being to react fast enough to capture the “right moment”, so when you start recording, its NPU analyses a second of video to determine the best time start recording at 7680 fps.

This process of analysing the video data and triggering at the right moment is a very strenuous process, using an AI algorithm and about 2 GB of RAM.

The HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro then captures 945 frames in 120 milliseconds. That approximately 3.5 GB worth of data is then expanded into 32 seconds of 30 fps ultra-slow motion video.

As you can tell, recording video at 7680 fps (frames per second) takes A LOT of processing power.

Even with its powerful Kirin 990 processor, the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro can only do it at the 720p resolution, and only for a fleeting 0.12 seconds.

So if you are wondering when will you be able to record 7680 fps video at 1080p or 4K resolution, or for longer than 0.12 seconds… we did some calculations, and a future smartphone must be capable of processing all this data in an instant :

  • 720p @ 0.24 seconds : 7.0 GB of data
  • 1080p @ 0.12 seconds : 7.8 GB of data
  • 1080p @ 0.24 seconds : 15.6 GB of data
  • 4K @ 0.12 seconds : 31.4 GB of data
  • 4K @ 0.24 seconds : 62.8 GB of data


The HUAWEI Mate 30 High ISO Capability

In low light conditions, it is possible to increase the camera’s ISO value – basically boosting the signal from its image sensor.

While this effectively increases the sensitivity of the image sensor to light hitting its photodiodes, it can increase noise. Therefore, the ability to increase ISO levels without introducing significant noise is highly desirable.

The HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro boasts the ability to increase ISO levels up to ISO 51200, which is incredibly high. What this means is you have greater capability to take photos and record videos in low-light conditions.
