It was earlier anticipated that Samsung will roll out much-awaited support for RAW photography with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop release. However, it turns out that Sammy isn’t going to shower any more affection to the very latest and popular Galaxy S6 duo. The Android 5.1.1 update that was rolled out for T-Mobile Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge phones didn’t include support for RAW. With other carriers seeding out the update globally very soon, it is unlikely now that any will contain this support.
A new rumor has suggested that Samsung is keeping the feature for the alleged Galaxy S6 Edge Plus release. While this means that S6 duo too will get this feature after S6 Edge Plus launch but this obviously comes as a major frustration to the proud owners of the two smartphones. Usually, you expect a phone maker to release all the new and important features to the latest released smartphones especially if these features are already being flaunted by your major competitors (hint: LG G4). However, Samsung has often kept major updates for the upcoming gadgets much to the distress of users of current phones.
Galaxy S6 RAM fix delayed:
While RAW capability in the camera is a feature possibly not important to all the users, there is another issue concerning everyone. Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge users have repeatedly reported Galaxy S6 RAM issues in the devices. Coming with 3GB of DDR4 RAM technology, RAM management has been found rather poor in the two latest gadgets.
With cases of very aggressive Galaxy S6 RAM management where apps get constantly shut down, it was hoped that Android 5.1.1 would fix this issue too. Nope! Sources of this same rumor claim that Samsung will possibly postpone Galaxy S6 RAM fix too until the launch of Galaxy S6 edge Plus. Totally frustrating and illogical but then this is just a rumor. Let’s hope Sammy releases the bug fix sooner than later.
Samsung is rumored to release Galaxy S6 edge Plus in the third quarter of this year before the Note 5 release at IFA.
