If the latest rumours are to be believed then the much vaunted Samsung Galaxy S8 may be coming with a camera that can shoot clips at mind-boggling 1000 fps.


Now for some context: that’s almost 5 times better than the 240 fps slo-mo on the Galaxy S7 and iPhone 7, and even edges out the 960 fps Sony demoed on the Xperia XZ premium it recently unveiled at Mobile World Congress 2017.


What this would mean if you haven't let that sink in yet is that the new Samsung Galaxy S8 camera will be able to capture one frame every millisecond.

Every Millisecond.


That means that you'll be able to use the S8 to record all sorts of interesting scenes, stuff you probably won't have been able to get before like a photo finish for a race or you know, whether a footballer cheekily stamped on a colleague while going down and clutching his ankle.

The only issue this brings up is space. If you're a heavy user, you'll be worried because there's just so much content.

Samsung have made no official announcement about this so it's best to take it with a pinch of salt. But with the Galaxy S8’s launch scheduled for March 29, we'll know soon enough.





A new leak has surfaced online showing the Samsung Galaxy S8 looking uber cool in its glossy black covering.

Many didn't see it coming and after reputable analyst Ming-Chi Kuo from KGI Securities tipped that the Galaxy S8 may come in no less than seven colors for the glass chassis - gold, silver, bright black, matte black, blue, orchid, and pink - people still wondered about the "bright" black and what it meant.

Was it to be something glossy and akin to the Jet Black piano lacquer finish of the iPhone 7 or...you know, something else. 

The leaked pictures give us insight into this and while we can only see a black slab with curved display sides and corners cos it's not powered, it still looks pretty awesome.

There's also the Samsung logo on the back, a camera lens with adjacent flash and heart rate sensor, as well as the finger scanner on the other side of the camera. That coincides with most of the credible pics or renders we've seen so far of the Galaxy S8, so there is every chance that glossy black chassis lovers will have their wish fulfilled with the S8.

There was a huge backlash when the new Whatsapp update came on people's phone, not like they didn't like the addition of a 'Whatsapp stories' feature, they just hated that text-based status updates were removed. 

So with this in mind, Whatsapp have decided to bring back the old feature




According to TechCrunch, the old feature will be back on Android phones as early as next week while iPhone users will get it soon as well.

"We heard from our users that people missed the ability to set a persistent text-only update in their profile, so we've integrated this feature into the 'About' section in profile settings. Now, the update will appear next to profile names anytime you view contacts, such as when creating a new chat or looking at Group info. At the same time, we're continuing to build on the new Status feature that gives people fun and engaging ways to share photos, videos and GIFs with their friends and family throughout their day," said Whatsapp




So what will happen is that the WhatsApp Text Status feature will work just in the same way as it was seen on Android beta version 2.17.95. with users able to set a text WhatsApp Status in the 'About' section which will change only when you want it to. Your contact list will be able to see the Status message by opening your contact, when starting a new chat thread, or viewing group info.




This is not to say the 'Whatsapp stories' feature is going anywhere but will only be housed in another tab. You can add photos and videos that disappear in 24 hours.
