The Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge both offer fantastic capturing camera quality, which is only natural, seeing how the pair employs very advanced sensors and optics. But, surprisingly enough, they lack RAW capture, which is a must for any photography enthusiast.

Industry sources claim that this will be remedied in the upcoming Android 5.1.1 update for the devices. The recent software will not only allow users to utilize the full potential of the phones class-leading 16 MegaPixel (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 see 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.

Furthermore, Samsung really shouldn't descend behind its competition if it wishes to retain market supremacy and both the HTC One M9 and the more-recent LG G4 have RAW support out-of-the-box. There is still no official information about Samsung's update schedule, but rumors have it that the Android 5.1.1 OTA will start seeding as early as next month.
