Samsung is expanding Expert Raw support to more phones. Now, the novelty is arriving at devices manufactured from 2020 onwards – including the Galaxy S20 Ultra, Note 20 Ultra and Galaxy Z Fold 2.
Launched last year, the app offers advanced camera settings for devices in the Galaxy family. As the name suggests, the app allows you to shoot in 16-bit RAW format. It provides “raw” digital images, with all the data captured by the sensor and without going through digital processing or compression.
The format is widely used by professional photographers because it provides greater control and freedom when editing the colors, brightness, and sharpness of the final image. In addition, the application offers advanced ISO functions, shutter speed, and white balance control; Records lossless JPEG images and supports Adobe Lightroom.
The feature was initially released on the Galaxy S21 Ultra, and later expanded to the S22, Z Fold 3, and Z fold 4. More base models like Galaxy S20, S20 Plus, Note 20 and the first Galaxy Flip are not compatible with the app.
to me Android saladeven on support phones, Expert RAW can only use 12MP primary and ultra-wide cameras. This is due to the fact that these devices have outdated processors and sensors.
The news was announced in official community from Samsung. However, the company did not say a timeline or which countries will receive the application first.
The resource is expected to be distributed worldwide in batches – slowly and gradually – all the way to Brazil in the coming weeks. When available, Expert Raw can be downloaded directly from the Galaxy Store.
