Rumor: RAW support and TouchWiz RAM fix to debut on the Galaxy S6 edge Plus?

Well, the Android 5.1 update for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge has started rolling out, but the latest information we have received from our insiders might just make you pull out your hair in frustration. We have been told that the support for RAW in the camera app and a fix for the RAM issues that the S6 duo suffers from will debut on the Galaxy S6 edge Plus, and might not be a part of the Android 5.1 update for the S6 and S6 edge before the S6 edge Plus goes up for sale.

Now, none of this is confirmed, but it might just make sense considering how Samsung has a habit of focusing on newer devices often at the expense of existing ones. However, if this is true, we’re not sure what good would come out of reserving the fix for the memory management issues for a newer device – it’s not a user-facing feature or function and just shouldn’t depend on whether a device is old or new. In fact, even support for shooting in RAW is a feature that a majority of consumers will never care about, and it would certainly not make for much of a marketing point considering it is already available on competing devices (like the LG G4.)

We can only hope that our information turns out to be incorrect – after the larger battery on the Galaxy S6 Active, this would be yet another insult to everyone who shelled out their hard earned money on the Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 edge. We’ll be doing all we can to get more details on the matter, and keeping our fingers crossed that Samsung doesn’t go forward with what could be a very disappointing move by the company.

Well I have a Note 4 I’d like to say to Galaxy S6 owners welcome to the club …………. oh they will even not fix your device until the new Samsung Hero will come to save you. This is Samsung & their policy is like gambling …………. fix nothing ……….bring nothing new ……… hoping the Samsung device owner will move to the next Samsung Flagship, not only that ……….Soon they will play a new game ……… guess what ???!!!! it is Android Vs Tizen game …………. like Exynos Vs Snapdragon game. after they get your money they will forget about… Read more »

It’s always the same story with Samsung. Astonishing hardware, pitiful support. Will they ever learn or will their customers learn and move on before that?

I wouldn’t be surprised if they push the 5.1 Update earlier than planned because of the data/quick toogle bug many experience these days. Maybe some parts just haven’t been ready yet.
If the easier exposure compensation gesture made it into this update it’s already a big step forward.

80% of Samsung’s software devs must be working on Tizen these days.

That’s true actually only about 20% for Android devices

That’s why they are so slow on releasing lollipop

They’ve actually been quite fast this year, but Google didn’t made it easy either with their buggy releases at the beginning.

Seeing S5 owners complaining all around the world for lollipop bugs soon after release should have been enough as a warning for you, and yet you are here with same bugs and taking it as an insult for only Note 4 users.
Lollipop seems to be the new ice-cream sandwich, that’s all needed to say while waiting for manufacturers to move on to 5.1.1 or M for all devices.

What is this ‘insult’ and other nonsensical words you people use? Try some basic non-dramatic words instead. No need to sensationalize some very simple stuffs. You people sound worse than Fox news.
BTW, with some many reports of leaks and rumous something is going to end up true. Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
