Samsung’s Expert RAW camera app will get two new features with next update, release for older models delayed

Samsung has announced two new features for its Expert RAW camera app, which will be available to users with the next update.

First is the Custom Preset feature, which allows users to save their custom camera settings and use them to take pictures again. Second is the Save Format menu, which allows users to save the images taken through the Expert RAW app in RAW or JPEG format. Right now, the app saves the images in both file formats, which can be inconvenient.

In addition to announcing new features, Samsung also said that the release of Expert RAW for Galaxy S20 Ultra, Galaxy Note20 Ultra and Galaxy Z Fold2 has been delayed.

These smartphones were supposed to have Expert RAW support in the H1 2022, but since it requires a full camera system update, the schedule has changed. However, Samsung aims to release Expert RAW for these devices by September.

Although Samsung has not given an exact date for the release of Expert RAW for the S20 Ultra, Note20 Ultra and Fold2, the company revealed that Expert RAW will only work with the wide and ultra-wide devices on the S20 Ultra without telephoto support. lens.

Samsung says that this is because Expert RAW’s Computational RAW is based on Bayer RAW, in which the Galaxy S20 Ultra’s Hybrid Optic 10x telephoto lens was unable to read the images.
