An update for Super HDR(For anyone that cares...), this is the reply from the Head of camera development team, I want to state that this is 99% a lie and it's such a misleading answer(Hopefully the translation is misleading).

Pixel 4a and iPhone 12 from 2020 got updated to support HDR previewing and metadata reading, yet, last year Flagships can't, Ultra HDR is confirmed to work with GEN2 SD(Qualcomm source: https://www.qualcomm.com/news/onq/2023/05/snapdragon-supports-android-14-new-ultra-hdr-format-for-ph...), and any HDR compatible display, Android 14 has everything to make it work as Super HDR is basically Ultra HDR(As stated here from google:https://developer.android.com/media/grow/ultra-hdr)

Even without the confirmations from the actual manufacturers, basic SW engineering knowledge and logic tells us that, that's a lie.

I know I probably sound like a Karen with all this ranting, but to dismiss such an interesting feature and QOL update, while other manufacturers seem to implement it on devices even 4 years old, makes me want to sell this device only so I don't encourage those practices/tactics.

You do know the iPhone and Google Puxel are totally different devices. Just because they support Super HDR on older devices, it doesn't mean Samsung devices do. You really should refrain from calling people liars without factually checking that it's true or not.

Google Camera Mods can already capture Ultra HDR JPG in S23 Ultra, so at least the camera app they could update it to support it. About display... before updating my S23 Ultra to Une UI 6.1 when opening an Ultra HDR JPG in Chrome it would increase the screen brightness automatically, and now Samsung has disabled/removed this feature so they degraded some phone functionalities on purpose to sell newer phones... I'm on the same boat and my next Phone won't be a Samsung. Here's my post on XDA with related info https://xdaforums.com/t/working-gcam-for-s23-ultra.4550019/post-89440010
