Lossless Raw coming to 23U?

Hi, I'm aware the S24U has had an update a month ago where in Expert Raw it gives you the option to save lossless Raw according to a YouTube review on Expert Raw posted about a month ago.

Does anyone know if this is coming to the S23U? I don't see why not since Expert Raw is a Samsung app essentially, and shouldn't be excluded from phones capable with Expert Raw. 

I've checked the store and no update available for me.

Do you get .dng files? I'm curious because my S9 and S20 both get .dngs, and I'm wondering what your S23 Ultra have as a 'RAW'

Yes it says dngs, but from what was said on the clip, having this Lossless Raw option saves it in a pure RAW.

The Dngs we do have are essentially jpegs wrapped in a dng coating and not actually Raws like this update supposedly would allow? I've only had this phone a couple weeks, but I have also been told the Pro mode originally did have actual Raw file ability, and so post editing on Lightroom apparently was more fully functional, ie denoise worked.

Following an update last year, the end result of Raw file data saves were altered, possibly unintentionally.

I'm not tech savvy on this, so just relaying whats been said.

Hmm, so what did they say the file extension is? RAW is just a type of file format that contains little alteration, so a .dng is a type of RAW file. Also very confusing how we don't have true RAWS anymore (apparently)

Multiple sources have relayed this. Give me a moment and I'll find a link to another source where it happened nearer the time for a better clarification than I can give...

The video link below is specifically about the issue. Also check the pinned top comment, as it is a follow up comment from the person he references.

Although he's referencing s23u specifically in the video, it would apply across the board with their dngs, I would imagine, especially Expert Raw.

If you don't trust links, I am a stranger at the end of the day lol, then youtube 'Brent Hall Did Samsung just ruin their best camera feature with an update'.

I assume a playstore app, but I can't find one under that specific name
