Samsung is rolling out the lollipop upgrade that includes many changes, some of which are under the hood but nonetheless still really important.
As part of the upgrade procedure Google does not force vendors to include all the new APIs. And that is what Samsung has decided NOT to do as well and not include the new CameraV2 API.
So what is so important about this new CameraV2 API. Well it is the API needed to enable the Samsung camera app to gain full manual control of the camera module. This includes the shutter speed, raw support and more.
This new API was a major improvement outlined for lollipop and it seems Samsung has cut corners and omitted this from their update.
Really disappointing news.
