Samsung adds front-facing slow-motion video recording like Apple's 'Slofie' in One UI 2

Previously this month, Samsung announced a beta program for One UI 2 based on Android 10 for the Samsung Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+, and Galaxy S10e for users in South Korea, which was then expanded to unlocked devices in the USA and possibly other regions too. The beta gives us a glimpse into some of the upcoming features that will make its way to the stable update, including features such as Dark Mode for more apps, Focus Mode within Digital Wellbeing, less intrusive alerts for calls and volume changes, and more. As it turns out, Samsung has also added in front-facing slow-motion videos in the update.

Apple introduced its front-facing slow-motion video recording feature called 'Slofie' with the launch of iPhone 11, which allows you to record a very short video that is slowed down for the playback. As reported by SamMobile, Samsung has done the same by including front-facing slow-motion videos in the latest One UI 2 update.

This preview of the feature was recorded by SamMobile shows off a bit of jitter through the video, but since this is the first iteration of the feature, we can expect the same to be ironed out in the stable release of One UI 2. Much like the slow-motion video mode for the rear camera, there are no customization options for front-facing slow-motion before you begin recording. You can, however, reduce the playback speed even further later on after recording.

What are your thoughts on 'Slofie'? Tell us in the comments if this is the feature worth adding in the One UI 2.
