What is FPS?

The term FPS stands for "frames per second" and is also called "frame rate", referring to both recording and playback speed when talking about video. In regards to shooting, the frames per second measurement is how many frames, or images, are taken in one second. With a higher fps count, you get a more natural playback, which is often anywhere between 30 fps and 60 fps. In fact, shooting at a high frame rate and then playing it back at a significantly slower frame rate is how slow motion video works. Galaxy S9, Galaxy S9+, and Galaxy Note9 offer the option of shooting Super Slow-mo videos, which are recorded at 960 frames per second. 960 fps is four times faster than the slow-motion videos on previous Galaxy phones, which are shot at 240 fps. In Super Slow-mo’s single mode, you can record approximately 0.4 seconds of video captured at 480 fps, which is then digitally enhanced to 960 fps with 12 seconds of playback. The videos are then played back at 30 fps. As a result, Super Slow-mo videos shot on the Galaxy S9 , Galaxy S9+, and Galaxy Note9 are highly detailed and exciting to watch.
