Galaxy S10+ - Remove Location Data doesn't work with HEIF photos

Galaxy S Phones

So it took me a while to figure out why I was not getting the option to remove location data when I was sharing some photos today.

Turns out that when you're sharing photos through Gallery, the app is only capable of remove location data from JPGs. So your HEIF image will go through with all that meta data. Even if you select the option to convert HEIF to JPG while sharing you won't get an option to remove location info.

Is this issue only with the S10+ or do the new flagships face this problem as well?

@samsung - please add support for HEIF/HEIC removal of location data into the Gallery app.
