HTC U11 update to include 60 fps video recording

HTC has a software update in the works for the HTC U11 and one of the new features to be included is video recording at 60 frames per second. This announcement came via a teaser posted by the HTC USA Twitter account. According to their post, the update that will include this improvement to the video camera “will be rolling out over the next couple of months.”

If you are not up to speed on video recording options, using a higher frame rate like 60 fps makes it easier to then produce a nice high quality slow-motion video since there are many more frames full of information to work with. Currently the HTC U11 can record at 30 fps in both 4K and 1080p resolutions. A nice 120 fps option is also available for 1080p recordings. HTC does not indicate which resolutions the new 60 fps option will be available in, but presumably it would just be in 1080p. Making it available at 4K would require some significant storage for the resulting videos and some beefy processing power for the device to keep up with all of the frames at such high quality.

Rumors have indicated HTC may also include support for Bluetooth 5.0 and for an sRGB screen mode. HTC has had nothing to say about those so far, but they could be the topic of future postings.
