The Galaxy S7‘s camera is likely to be of its key features with a bigger sensor or even more megapixels. Now a new leak suggests the device could also add a popular photography feature that we’ve seen on other recent flagship phones.

According to S_leak, the Galaxy S7 will pack a 20-megapixel camera with RAW support and a few more new options. RAW refers to an image file that’s been processed as little as possible. That makes it easier to edit your pictures later without losing any of the original image. It’s popular with professionals and is also great for anyone who loves showing off their mobile photography.
A few phones from companies like LG and HTC already offer RAW photo support, so it makes sense that Samsung would want to do the same. This is the first time we’ve heard from S_leak though. The new Twitter account seems to have popped up overnight with a focus on Samsung rumors, so we’ll treat this claim with a grain of salt for now.
Beyond its camera, the Galaxy S7 is expected to pack a USB-C charging port and a next-gen processor (either the Snapdragon 820 or Exynos M1 depending on region). It may also come in 5.2 and 5.7-inch size options, both with a curved-edge display.
The Galaxy S7 is expected to arrive early next year. Samsung may even unveil the device at the start of February, about a month ahead of its regular schedule, though that’s also just a rumor.
