Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge to gain RAW support after the Android 5.1 update
Samsung is seemingly planning to update its Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge to Android 5.1 Lollipop starting this month. The update won't bring just new things that are exclusively related to Android, but also some enhancements that S6 and S6 edge owners will most likely enjoy.

According to Sam Mobile, the Android 5.1 update for the S6 family will include support for RAW photography, as well as lower ISO values (possibly as low as ISO 50, from the current ISO 100 lowest value). As previously reported, iPhone-like exposure settings should also be available once the new update is installed.

The 16 MP rear cameras of the Galaxy S6 and S6 edge are already among the best out there (when it comes to smartphone cameras, of course), and it looks like the Android 5.1 Lollipop update will make them even better.

Another feature that the upcoming software update for the S6 and S6 edge should include is Guest Mode (which, of course, is already available on various other Android devices).

Samsung has yet to confirm the details presented above. Hopefully, everything will indeed be included in the software update that the company is planning to roll out.
