Samsung has updated its Expert RAW app, which brings Astrophoto mode to the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+, Galaxy S21 Ultra, and Galaxy Z Fold4. It allows the phones’ users to take long-exposure pictures of stars and constellations, but the quality of the images depends on how clear the skies are and the amount of pollution you have in your area.

The Astrophoto mode is available for the Galaxy Z Fold4 and Galaxy S21 trio with version 2.0.09.1 of Expert RAW, which can be downloaded from Samsung’s Galaxy Store. However, S21 series users must first install the April 2023 security update to use Astrophoto mode. And if they are yet to receive the update, they can check for it manually by navigating to their phone’s Settings > Software update menu.
