Zero Camera Mod for the Samsung Galaxy S9 improves picture & video bitrates and removes recording limits

The Samsung Galaxy S9 camera is nothing short of amazing. In fact, it’s probably one of the best mobile phone cameras we have around currently. However, just because it’s the best doesn’t mean there isn’t any room for improvement. XDA Senior Member zeroprobe has been working on the Zero Camera Mod, a modification for the Samsung Galaxy S9 to make the camera even better. It changes some settings and removes some restrictions in order to provide an even higher quality camera. There’s probably a reason these restrictions are in place, but none that immediately jump out.


One of the first changes you’ll notice is that the Zero Camera Mod for the Samsung Galaxy S9 increases the bitrate of recorded video by about 30%. While that doesn’t correlate to a 30% better video quality, it means that your videos will be more consistent. It also means that, at times, the videos will be higher quality than stock. Other noteworthy improvements to image and video taking include a higher JPG quality, no time limit on recording, and AutoFocus tracking in all modes. To install all of those, you’ll need to flash the flashable zip found in the thread. If that’s not enough, there’s even more which you can access by installing the modded application as well.

A huge amount of features are offered in the Samsung Galaxy S9 Zero Camera Mod.

The modded application offers a number of extra features. The 4GB video limit is removed, along with allowing you to select your own custom bitrates instead. Even better, there is now support for setting a shutter time longer than 10 seconds.

If you want to give the mod a try, you can follow the link below to go to the thread on our forums. It only works on Exynos editions of the device, so if you have one of the few unlockable Snapdragon devices you’re out of luck for now.
