It is understood that the 8K footage recorded by the Samsung Galaxy S20 will take up about 600MB of space per minute. Samsung says the five-minute 8K video will take up about 3GB of space. According to SamMobile, the maximum recording time is also limited to five minutes, and users can only shoot 24fps of video, not at a higher frame rate of 30fps or even 60fps. At the same time, 8K recording also does not have video stability.

It also suggests that if users regularly record 8K video, storage will quickly become a problem, so it is recommended that you choose a large version of the body storage capacity if you buy a Galaxy S20 series phone. In the Galaxy S20 series, the Samsung Galaxy S20 is equipped with 128GB of body storage, while the Galaxy S20 plus galaxy S20 Ultra is equipped with 128GB/512GB of body storage. All three phones come with a MicroSD slot and support up to 1TB microSD.
