Samsung's latest flagships devices, Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge offers quite an amazing camera quality but lacks in terms of functionality as it surprisingly doesn't support RAW capture, which is a must for any photography enthusiast.

 

The upcoming Android 5.1.1 Lollipop update for the S6 and S6 Edge will bring RAW support and will also allow users to use the full potential of the phones class-leading 16 MP OIS camera, but should also bring about a lot more manual control over the camera.

Actually, RAW photo capture is not an entirely novice feature on the Galaxy S6 and its edged sibling. In fact, is we look back at some info from MWC 2015, in turns out the devices did have the functionality. But after the pair hit mass markets, it mysteriously disappeared. Perhaps Samsung wasn't quite ready to roll out the feature and there is really no reason for it to be absent, seeing how RAW support has been present in Google's own camera2 API ever since Android 5.0 Lollipop came out.

 

There is still no official information about Samsung's update schedule, but rumors have it that the Android 5.1.1 OTA update will start seeding as early as next month.
