Nowadays, we all use multiple devices and accessories for our daily lives, but sometimes it can be a mess to keep different chargers for each device, and if you are going to travel, it will create more problems to keep them together because the cables are tangled together. But to get rid of these problems, there is power sharing technology.

What is the wireless power sharing feature?

The Samsung wireless power sharing feature offers you the ability to use your Galaxy smartphone to charge other devices, such as your Galaxy Watch, Buds, or another Galaxy phone. This is a premium feature that is available for the flagship Galaxy smartphones that allows device-to-device switching without the need for a normal charger or cable.

Samsung has finally debuted its premium application, Expert RAW, for the Galaxy Z Flip 6 smartphones. Now, users will be able to take professional photographs with dedicated features. 

It is worth noticing that Samsung hasn’t dubbed its foldable a camera-centric smartphone. While it initially focused on only how it could bring more utility features for users to take advantage of the foldable’s uniqueness, over the years, the company has improved the camera lenses as well.

To make it more professional, the Korean giant has made Expert RAW available for smartphones. The application allows users to take advantage of different features such as ISO, shutter speed, and more.

The arrival of Expert RAW on the Galaxy Z Flip 6 opens the door for older devices, but this has not been officially confirmed. However, if a company wants to introduce the Expert RAW functionality for the Galaxy Z Foldables, then the One UI 6.1.1 update may be the perfect opportunity to unveil it.

It is worth noting that the Expert RAW for Galaxy Z Flip 6 provides an improved experience by optimizing the details of JPG and DNG image formats. More specifically, in the DNG, the part where details were intermittently lacking due to noise removal was improved by adjusting the noise level.
