Samsung Galaxy S2 Hacked: Now 1080p Recording Improved

When it comes to the world of smartphones, we at OSM have reported on quite a few including many of the rumors for the iPhone 4S and the iPhone 5. Another device that seems to be doing particularly well amongst all of you is the Samsung Galaxy S II.

Despite the large number of you that have complained about the screen being discolored at times it still managed to get to the top of the UK chart for the month ahead of the big time selling iPhone 4. Since then we have heard that the Samsung Galaxy S2 has been hacked and now 1080p recording is possible.

We learned of the improvements through Slashgear’s Chris Davies who says that a modder better known for his work on Symbian cameras has turned his attentions to the Android based Galaxy S2. He goes on to say that the modder hyperX has managed to get the video at 24MBit 1080p running at 30fps and the audio is at 44,1khz and 192kbit.

These improvements seem to be welcomed as the out of the box settings are around 16Mbit/s 1080p HD outputting the files in MP4 using the H.264 codec and AAC mono audio. As things stand this update isn’t quite ready yet so keep an eye on hyperX’s page on this link. In the mean time Potatoman has added his own little hack on the camera to improve the audio over on the XDA Forums.

What do you think of the standard camera on the Samsung Galaxy S2? Is there a lot of room for improvement? Let us know in the comments section below.
