A few weeks back it was reported that Samsung has started working on the Android 5.1 update for the Galaxy S6. It was later reported that this update is going to bring improvements for the camera and now we’re hearing that the Galaxy S6 Android 5.1 update will add improved manual exposure controls to the handset. iPhone users are already accustomed to this feature and it will certainly be a welcome addition to the Android flagship from Samsung.


Apple lets users manually adjust exposure at the point of focus in the viewfinder, it’s as easy as simply dragging the finger up and down on the subject to change the exposure.

According to a new report, Samsung is going to allow Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge users to do the same with the Android 5.1 Lollipop update. The feature is said to be present in Android 5.1 by a scribe that’s testing a pre-release Android 5.1 build for these handsets.

Samsung is also expected to add the ability to capture photos in RAW format with this update, along with improved shutter speed control. While Samsung hasn’t said anything about when this update might arrive on its latest flagship handsets, word on the street is that the Galaxy S6 Android 5.1 release is destined for June.
