TL;DR
  • Samsung’s Expert RAW camera app is coming to 2020 Galaxy flagships.
  • The app is now available on the Galaxy S20 Ultra and Z Fold 2 through the Galaxy Store.

Samsung is expanding its all-powerful Expert RAW photography app to its 2020 Galaxy flagships, namely the Galaxy S20 Ultra, Note 20 Ultra, and Galaxy Z Fold 2.

The app made its debut on the Galaxy S21 Ultra in 2021. Since then, Samsung has expanded support to many other flagships, including the Galaxy S22 series, Galaxy Z Fold 3, and the Galaxy Z Fold 4.

Other Samsung flagships from 2020, including the standard Galaxy S20, S20 Plus, Note 20, and the first Galaxy Flip, are not compatible with the app. Even on the supported phones, Expert RAW can only utilize the primary and 12MP ultrawide shooters.

If you are a Galaxy S20 Ultra, Note 20 Ultra, or Galaxy Z Fold 2 user, you can now download the Expert RAW app from the Galaxy Store. You’ll have to ensure that your phone has the latest firmware.

The official Samsung community post announcing the support notes that users might notice slower processing times and inferior image quality compared to newer flagships that support Expert RAW. This is due to the older processor and camera sensors in these phones.

If you’ve never used Samsung’s Expert RAW app, here’s a handy tutorial on how to go about it and up your photography game.
