Even the latest build of Lightroom for Android doesn't support HDR capture for the Samsung Galaxy S9/S9+

Correct, HDR capture is not currently supported for this device. I am moving this to a feature request so that it can be tracked in the event support is added.

Also voicing interest. Just "upgraded" from an S7 to an S9 only to find the most useful feature in my favorite app had vanished :-(

Tap the hamburger icon top left, then go down to Technology Previews and see if there's an HDR switch in there to toggle. It's like a test version.

I did manage to find that panel, but there are no options available -- just a checkbox to be notified of experimental features when they become available. So I guess it isn't available for the S9 yet.

Maybe Vincent can let us know what particular phone / OS build he's on....I'm very interested to get this working as this feature was so critical to my editing, I've had to completely give up LR Mobile in the mean time :-(

HDR is a BIG deal on Lightroom. It stands out from any other editing app. Please bring this feature to the Galaxy S9.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Any update on HDR Galaxy S9+.

For some reason, Adobe only allows HDR up to the Galaxy S8 models. Can we get an update if Adobe ever even plans to release for future Android phones? It's just a bit frustrating that this feature is on older phones and not using the newer technology.
