The new export feature for LR Mobile Android v5.0 supposedly supports color space tagging but it is not working. The exported image's color space remains untagged with no embedded profile.

I can confirm that JPEG Export with LR Mobile for  Android v5.0 does not embed a color profile, but TIFF export does. The export color profile appears to be fixed to sRGB with no way to choose a different color profile in the options settings.

Just to update, the updated Dec'19 LR Mobile v5.1 Android app did not fix the issue of missing color tag/embedded color profile.

The updated Dec’19 v5.1 LR Mobile IPadOS app however gained the following :-
- exported 2048 px : color tag and embedded color profile
- full size : color tag but no embedded color profile

Adobe team, was it intentional to exclude embedded color profiles for full size JPEG exports on the IPadOS v5.1?

I am seeing this issue as well on the Android app. When I use the new Export screen on PC Desktop app and open the image in Photoshop, the colors display correctly and Photoshop shows that the Color Space of the image is what I specified during Export.

In the Lightroom Android app, however, the colors display incorrectly (either over or undersaturated, depending on the Color Space selected), and Photoshop shows that the Color Space of the exported image is "Untagged".

This is a big issue as it means I can't export color-accurate JPG files from the Android app.
