With yesterday’s announcement that the iPhone 6s will shoot 4K video, lots of potential buyers may be questioning simply how much area they’ll have to contain all the videos they’ll shoot.
That concern has actually been addressed thanks to Marques Brownlee’s hands-on video of the device. Because video, Brownlee briefly provides an appearance at the phone’s video camera settings, including the area requirements for 4K video…
… 4K video is substantially larger than 1080p and as an outcome requires a lot more storage area. While a single minute 1080p footage at the conventional 30 frames per 2nd needs just 130 MB, a 4K video at the very same framerate will need a whopping 375 MB.
That implies if you’re considering the 16 GB iPhone, you’re probably going to want to turn your video size down. At that rate, you ‘d fill up a full 16 GB in about 40 minutes, which’s not counting the space that’s already utilized up by iOS, apps, other pictures and videos, music, and all of your other information.
Users on larger iPhones, like the 64 GB model, will certainly have a bit more room to stash those videos. The mid-size phone can store around three hours of video footage. As you may already have actually guessed, the 128 GB phone can take about 6 hours of 4K video before losing space.
Of course, all of these numbers are simply price quotes. Each minute of video might not take up precisely 375 MB, and available space on your phone will be less than the advertised 64 or 128 GB once the os is set up and all of your other data has been included. Still, these numbers need to help provide you a good concept which model you’ll require depending upon your video taping needs.
