Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge reportedly getting camera improvements with Android 5.1.1
The Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge are receiving plenty of positive praise due to the phone’s design, its slim-downed software, and its performance in general, but one of its biggest headlining features is actually the camera.
There’s no denying that the GS6 has one of the best cameras available for smartphones, though the LG G4 aims to provide an experience that rivals what you’ll find with Samsung. It seems that Samsung isn’t holding still when it comes to camera performance, however, as a new report from SamMobile claims that the upcoming Android 5.1.1 update will include several new camera features alongside the general bug fixes that you’d expect from Android 5.1.x.
Before you ask, yes, some T-Mobile users already have received the update to 5.1.1 on their Galaxy S6 Edge, and no, there weren’t any camera changes present. It is important to note that since then the update has seemingly been halted and so it seems likely that it was an unfinished (test) build that accidentally was pushed out early.

So what kind of new camera features are we talking about? SamMobile’s “source” doesn’t get into any specifics, though the publication speculates that Samsung may be adding support for the full Google camera API on Lollipop, which would bring RAW shooting, shutter speed control, and more.
What do you think, what are some of the areas you’d like to see improved when it comes to the camera experience on the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge? Conversely, do you feel the camera is near perfect as it is?
