Earlier this year when the Samsung Galaxy S21 series arrived, it had some of the useful features for content creators and not to forget the impressive camera setup. Samsung has been updating older flagship smartphones with features from Galaxy S21 as promised. One of the features that haven’t yet arrived on older flagship phones is the Director’s View. Cut to now, a software update is now released on 2020’s Galaxy Note 20 and Galaxy S20 series that brings a Dual Recording camera that allows simultaneous recording via both front and rear cameras.
Director’s View arrived with the ability to shoot both front and rear camera feed onto a single screen. This is a great feature for content creators and others who want both facing cameras to stay active and record or they would require two phones to do the same.
Dual Recording but no Director’s View
The said Director’s View dual recording feature has now trickled down to the Galaxy S20 series and Note 20 series and it is dubbed as “Dual Recording” via a new software update.
As the name suggests, it is a stripped-down version that allows recording via both front and rear-facing cameras simultaneously. Unfortunately, Samsung hasn’t released Director’s View exactly but just a dual recording feature for the default camera app on last year’s flagship phones.
Users can record both the views, and set whether they want the front camera to have a larger window and the rear camera to have a PiP-like window or vice versa. This is as simple as it gets and there are no hidden tricks to enable it. Simply upgrade to the latest update arriving on Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, Galaxy S20, Galaxy S20+, and Galaxy S20 Ultra via OTA.
There are still many features that Galaxy S21 series offers and that haven’t trickled down to S20 or Note 20 series yet. One such feature available in the Director’s View lets users view feeds from all cameras mounted on their device that includes the front camera, rear primary, ultrawide, and other sensors alike. Users can toggle between the views when recording a video. Anyways, If you are a Galaxy S20/ Note20 series user, go to Settings >> Software Update to check for the incoming update.
