Photo while taking a video - is it a sham?

I have been playing around with options to burst photos whilst taking a video. Using the default camera app on my honor view phone, when taking a video the photo button appears to be doing nothing more than taking a screenshot of the current video frame.

Taking a still photo with photo mode selected produces a nice and crisp image.

Taking a photo during video recording generates a fuzzy image which is no better than screenshotting the video during playback.

Can anyone else confirm or deny this behaviour on another devices?
