While it has already been confirmed that some older Samsung devices will receive the Expert RAW app. It has now been confirmed that the release of the app for the Galaxy S20 Ultra, Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and Galaxy Z Fold 2 will be delayed.
Expert RAW now allows saving custom presets. Users can now store custom presets so they can be easily used for later recordings. The app is capable of saving images in RAW and JPEG format simultaneously. With the update, users can now choose whether the app should only save the images in RAW or JPEG format. However, both at the same time are still possible.
It was confirmed today that Expert RAW does not support the telephoto lens of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra, only the wide and ultra-wide-angle lenses. That’s because the Galaxy S20 Ultra’s Hybrid Optic 10x telephoto lens isn’t capable of outputting Bayer RAW, which is what Expert RAW’s Computational RAW is based on.
Back in February, it was promised that the app would get support for the Galaxy S20 Ultra, Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, and Galaxy Z Fold 2 in the second half of this year. It has now been confirmed that the support schedule for these devices has changed. The models should then be able to use the app by September.
