How HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro Captures 7680 FPS Video!

The HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro has a spectacular new video recording feature – the ability to capture 7680 fps ultra-slow motion video!

Find out how the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro is able to capture video at a blazing 7680 frames per second!

The HUAWEI 7680 FPS Video Showcase!

HUAWEI shared with us four new short video samples to showcase the Mate 30 Pro‘s ability to deliver 7680 fps ultra-slow motion video.

Together with two additional videos they released earlier, we created this video showcase of their 7680 fps slow-motion capability.

It would be impossible for a human being to react fast enough to capture the “right moment”, so when you start recording, its NPU (Neural Processing Unit) 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

In addition, all that data must fit into the smartphone’s memory. Such a smartphone would need anywhere from 10 GB to 64 GB of memory!

This is why the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro’s new ability to record 7680 fps video at 720p is, frankly, freaking amazing. The most other flagship smartphones can do is 960 fps at 720p.

The HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro‘s 7680 fps ultra-slow motion video capability is literally far and above its competitors. 8X better, to be exact!
