That’s what HTC will enable in a future software update. The company says we’ll see the goods roll out within a couple of months’ time.
There are no details on what, exactly, we’re getting. Some phones tend to lock high frame rate recording to lower resolutions, as it takes a pretty beefy imaging chip to record 60fps in 4K (which the Snapdragon 835 is). If anything will hold the HTC U11 back it would have to be the sensor itself, though we can’t seem to find any concrete information on the exact capabilities of its Sony IMX362 unit.
We can at least safely assume that the device can record such video at resolutions of at least 1080p. We’ll reach out to HTC to see if they can’t offer up any more details. We’ll let you know the moment this update finds its way out of the door.
