Samsung is shooting an 8K Korean film using the Galaxy S20

To release in 8K, 16:9 resolution

Published

Are you ready for 8K entertainment? Ready or not, the next evolution in resolution is coming. In fact, today’s smartphones already have the ability to shoot 8K video, fitting perfectly well with the recent influx of 8K TVs. All that’s left is actual content. Blessed with a growing list of 8K-compatible hardware, Samsung is shooting an 8K Korean film using the Galaxy S20 series.

Announced through the company’s South Korean newsroom, Samsung will mostly use the Galaxy S20 and the Galaxy Note 20 to shoot the short film titled Untact. The company will release the 8K film in select cinemas in South Korea. To ensure safety, the film will show for only small batches of people. Besides the small theatrical release, Samsung will also release the film through its YouTube channel.

South Korean director Kim Jee-Woon will helm the film. The director is most known for popular thrillers such as The Last Stand (featuring Arnold Schwarzenegger) and A Tale of Two Sisters. Meanwhile, Train to Busan’s Kim Joo-Heon and Kim Go-eun will star in the film. The film is a romance flick focusing on the effects of non-face-to-face communication.

Historically, Samsung isn’t the only tech maker foraying into the film business. This year, Apple also shot its own film using an iPhone 11 Pro, among other attempts.

Regardless of the obvious marketing for both companies, technology has undoubtedly progress far beyond the expectations of a regular smartphone from a decade ago. Amidst the rise of 8K entertainment, smartphones are rushing to catch up with modern filmmaking gear. Though the industry will always prefer filmmaker equipment, the smartphone’s capability is there and ripe for the taking.
