Galaxy S6 update to bring new camera features
It has been almost a month now since Samsung officially released its latest flagship smartphone to the public, and now news reaches us that a future Android Galaxy S6 update is set to bring some welcome new camera features.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 has been well received so far by the press and owners and one of the handsets standout features is the 16-megapixel OIS equipped main camera, and now it is being reported that the company is working on an update that will bring RAW camera support to the smartphone.
Normally smartphones and some digital cameras capture a JPEG image that means the data is compressed down to save on storage, but by using a RAW mode the camera will capture all the data that is taken by the sensor itself with no compression.
This should mean better images that include a lot more detail while the user can still digitally correct any imperfections. The Galaxy S6 did previously support the RAW image format but wasn’t present when the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge came to the market.
The camera update is set arrive with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop that is tipped to arrive in the next month or so, so far I’ve been really impressed with what the camera has to offer but haven’t had chance to put it through its paces properly.
Do you like the idea of a RAW format?
