Samsung Galaxy S6/Galaxy S6 Edge to get updated camera features with Android 5.1 OS update IBTimes UK

It is known that users of Samsung's recent Galaxy S6/Galaxy S6 Edge will be seeded Google's Android 5.1 (Lollipop) OS update; and this rollout is confirmed to begin from Canada, as early as in June.

Now, in what could be termed as a double delight, Samsung Galaxy S6/Galaxy S6 Edge users installing Android Lollipop are expected to get a brand new intuitive camera interface.

According to a GSMArena report that in turn quotes SamMobile which claims to have downloaded and tested out an early Android 5.1 build, functionality such as support for capturing photos in RAW format will be added to the 16MP camera that Samsung Galaxy S6/Galaxy S6 Edge already possesses.

Yet another important functionality, guaranteed to feature in Android 5.1, is the shutter speed control which should excite amateur photographers to a great extent.

Besides, a SamMobile report says, Galaxy S6/S6 Edge users will be able to manually tweak the exposure of cameras that their smartphones incorporate. Currently, this feature is offered by Apple to users of its iPhones (lately on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus).

Users can check out/test the feature (after installing Android Lollipop) by just dragging a finger upwards/downwards to accordingly adjust exposure levels.

In summary, the above features seemingly add a great deal of multimedia functionality to Samsung Galaxy S6/Galaxy S6 Edge. However the exact nature of these aspects will be known only after the smartphones, post installation of Android Lollipop, are subjected to a real world test.
