In addition, Samsung’s new Expert RAW camera app lets you adjust highlights, shadows, saturation, and hue just like the stock camera app on the Galaxy S21 Ultra. In addition, it gives access to histogram, offers HDR support, and can save images in lossless JPG formats and 16-bit linear DNG RAW formats.
The main drawback of the Expert RAW application is that it only works with Galaxy S21 Ultra based on One UI 4.0 shell based on Android 12. But a Samsung community moderator promised that in the future, the utility will receive support for the Galaxy S21 + and Galaxy Tab S5e, as well as other devices. But when this happens, he did not name the dates. Apparently, the launch of Android 12 with One UI 4.0 indicates that, in theory, all devices of the company will be able to work with the new utility, which will receive an update to the current version of the green robot.
