As we are at the end of this year, we have seen some incredible smartphones in terms of camera. Whether it be the 108 Megapixel Mi CC9 Pro or 64 Megapixel sensor in the Redmi Note 8 Pro, every smartphone has tried to make a name for itself in the camera department. As you know, these devices are running on the Android OS which is an open-source operating system that can be tweaked in terms of appearance and capabilities.
Allow us to tell you a major fact which you might know if you are an avid movie maker or editor who uses his Android phone’s camera for recording High-resolution videos. The fact is that your Android device can only record videos with a size of 4 gigabytes! Yes, but that doesn’t mean that you can not continue the video after that. Once you reached the threshold for 4GB then your device starts to record the rest of the video as another file. The downside of which is that you don’t have a single video file as a whole instead you have numerous videos in your gallery.
Well, this age-old problem will most probably be fixed after the launch of Android 11! Going by a new commit in the Android open source project Gerrit, the next generation of Android will have an updated version of Android’s media files.
With the help of these updated Android media files, the XDA_developers managed to record a video that was 32GB in size! Not only that, the devs managed to fill the internal storage of an Android device just by recording a single video.
It looks like with the launch of Android 11 i.e. in the year 2020, the Camera capabilities in the Android market will flourish. As the upcoming Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 chipset also has enhanced camera capabilities like the new Spectra 480 ISP, which will increase the camera processing power and not only that, with this new feature, you can click images with 64 Megapixel resolution while recording a 4K HDR video.
