The Samsung Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge are two flagship devices equipped with sophisticated and highly advanced camera sensor and optics that everyone thought it would bring a whole new experience in mobile phone photography with the latest RAW support on mobile devices. But it seems that Samsung for the most part isn’t ready enough for such feature for the flagship device even though that at its core, Android 5.0 Lollipop has it supported on its Camera2 API.

But folks may need not to worry for long as Samsung is said to enable its RAW support for both the standard Galaxy S6 and the radical Galaxy S6 edge on the next firmware update. Samsung is rumored to seed Android 5.1.1 update to Galaxy S6 devices next month and it is speculated to include the much awaited feature for its own Camera app. Samsung has already include a dozen of features tailored for taking photos and even tweak the interface for more ergonomics and accessibility.

The Galaxy S6 camera on both software and hardware departments are truly a significant progress from all of Samsung devices in the past, but given the rising popularity of RAW support for such devices especially being a flagship per se, it should be fair enough for such technology be enabled on the Galaxy S6 before it could lag behind the competition. It may not matter so much for the typical user but it would make a huge difference for those who loves the freedom to tweak and alter their captured images.
