The camera is now more than a smartphone add-on. The Galaxy S20 series has upgraded camera sensors to enable shooting of 8K video.

8K video snap
Moments you don't want to miss can disappear instantly. When you want to enjoy all inspiring scenes, the 8K video snap is a whole new way to capture still photography. 8K video turns every frame into a crisp still that you can pinch-to-zoom for once-in-a-lifetime shots.
The unique camera capabilities of the Galaxy S20 series allow you to capture a single picture of an 8K video as a high-quality photo. If you touch the Snap icon whilst an 8K video is playing, it will be saved as a picture just like screen capture.
However, it is quite different from a normal screen capture. Screen captures usually degrade the image quality, but this feature provides easy extraction for high resolution just like an actual shot.
Note: Extracted photography from 8K videos you record is high resolution, 33MP.
