Yes, it’s reasonable to assume (a bit more so if you take a peek at the source code of AOSP). The JNI native methods for
BitmapFactory are in
BitmapFactory.decodeByteArray() and the
BitmapDrawable(InputStream) constructor end up calling
doDecode(), and since this constructor is used when loading resources from the APK, it would be reasonable to assume that the capabilities are the same.
