According to the Samsung community’s camera in charge, Ultra HDR for image is not a “camera only” function, instead, it is mainly related to display. Whether or not, the One UI 6 update will bring HDR for images still remains a mystery.

A Samsung fan asked will Samsung Android 14 update bring the Ultra HDR feature, but the moderator didn’t give a proper answer. Probably, the company might be internally considering the way to adopt the feature Google showcased at its developer’s conference.

Since the Ultra HDR feature leans on display more than camera, flagship Galaxy devices like the Galaxy S Ultra, and Galaxy Z Fold should get access to it with the Android 14 update. At the event, Google revealed that it’s working with Qualcomm to optimize the Ultra HDR feature.

As a result, Android smartphones equipped with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor would get support for Ultra HDR for Image feature with the Android 14 upgrade. At Samsung, the Galaxy S23 smartphone lineup is first in line to be eligible for it, thanks to the 8 Gen 2 for Galaxy chip.

At I/O 2023, Google confirmed that Android 14 will include Ultra HDR as a new photo format for clicking pictures. The OEM said that this format will allow photos to be captured in the backward-compatible JPEG format, but offer a dynamic range beyond 8 bits, bringing more detailed shadows and highlights.

Samsung Galaxy S21 FE One UI 6.1 India

Samsung’s Galaxy S21 FE now supports the Camera Assistant app. The company has silently brought this upgrade to one of its popular Fan Edition smartphones. However, some Camera Assistant features available in flagship phones don’t arrive on the S21 FE.

Folks over at SamMobile highlight that Camera Assistant support for Galaxy S21 FE went live in January this year. It’s worth noting that the Camera Assistant app received its last update in January, which probably made the S21 FE-supported model.

Camera Assistant is a free-to-download app available on the Galaxy Store. Support for S21 FE was initially planned to arrive with a One UI 6.0 upgrade. The company has also fulfilled its promise, while this significant development didn’t fall under our radar.

Once downloaded, you will be able to make changes to the stock camera application. Camera Assistant allows you to bring a 2x zoom button to the camera viewfinder, picture softening, burst shot when using the timer, distortion correction, and disable long press video recording.
