Samsung Galaxy S7 to Have Apple’s ‘Live Photos’-Like Feature

Browse This Page

One of the coolest, and most loved things about the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus when it launched was the inclusion of Live Photos. A really fun feature to use, it helps you click photos with short video clips just, and after the photo so that you can immerse yourself in the emotion of the photograph whenever you look at it.


It’s a fun feature, but not something ground-breaking that we expected Android to bring to their devices, but such is the lack of ingenuity in the smartphone market these days that we have Samsung’s already porting the idea on to their next flagship.


According to reports, Samsung is planning to bring a Live Photos-like feature to the Galaxy S7 under the name of Vivid Photos. But, Samsung’s version will be a bit different than Apple’s offering. Vivid Photos will not capture sound, but only the image. These images will be saved as GIFs, and will be particularly of interest to users who’ve struggled to upload Live Photos on Facebook.  Let’s see if Vivid Photos works as well for Samsung as Live Photos did for Apple.

    Actually live photos originally brought by Nokia in its Lumia phones. Though Lumia phones were not so success like iPhone, hence no one has noticed it except lumia owners. So pls don’t spread wrong information. Apple has not brought it as always.

    Samsung Galaxy S4 had “sound and shot” + “Animated photos” . HTC had Zoe. Nokia Lumia had “Living images”.
    But, yes. Samsung “borrows” live photos from Apple.

    Didn’t the Galaxy s4 already have this like 3 years back?
