Leaked Nokia 8 live pictures show the phone's camera UI (hint: it's not pretty)
by Cosmin Vasile / Aug 04, 2017, 12:16 AM
HMD's flagship, the Nokia 8 is supposed to be revealed on August 16, which means there's plenty of time to learn everything there is to know about the flagship. We already know what the handset will look like and we've got a pretty good idea of what's under the hood.
One aspect that remains to be clarified is the software that will power the Nokia 8. Also, we know that the flagship will come with Zeiss optics, but the camera UI might not rise to the expectations some consumers might have.
Although HMD recently transferred the Lumia Camera patent from Microsoft, it will probably take some time until the excellent app will make its way to Nokia smartphones. And that's quite unfortunate since the current camera UI pre-installed on the Nokia 3, 5 and 6 is far from being flawless.
A few pictures of the Nokia 8 camera app confirm the smartphone will feature the same UI as the other Nokia Android handsets with very small changes because it packs a more advanced snap shooter.
Apparently, the Nokia 8 will feature three camera modes: RGB, Dual-Camera, and Mono. Before taking a picture, users will also be able to choose what camera they want to use: Main camera, Dual-Camera, and Front-facing camera.
Even if Nokia 8 will come with a less than perfect camera UI, HMD will probably update it whenever the Lumia Camera app has been renamed and optimized to work on its Android devices.

I don't really care about the camera UI, as long as the camera takes good to amazing photos and video.

Not to mention that they're going to give us the good camera UI that Nokia became known for, thanks to the patent transfer.

You can even read about it here on PA: https://www.phonearena.com/new
They've transfered the patents required to bring back the classic Nokia camera UI (the one that was so good that other manufacturers did their best to copy it).

" (hint: it's not pretty)" so how you concluded that? Not sure for what you are using camera or camera software.. Important is the result.. the picture quality..

Exactly. This isn't an issue. I could understand of the camera took crappy photos and videos, but complaining about the camera UI is ridiculous and some here are just trying to make an issue out of something that really isn't an issue.

So what is more important, look of the UI or performance of the camera? Why don't you guys team up with that former Google Vic dude. You seem to be on the same page in priorities.

As usual on iPhoneArena, they do not know what is ugly and what is not. I agree on others that what is more important is the image quality of the camera, not its camera ui. iPA should not tell opinions like that without seeing the actual phone.

The UI is important too. But seeing a top bar with a few icons isn't what I'd call "UI". From what I can see they give us excellent choice as we can select which camera we want to use. That's not bad, isn't it?

That Ui is ugly, not sure why everyone above is bringing apple into it (insecurity?). Phone Arena have praised the Lumia camera Ui in the past and the ugly moniker was tailored towards not expecting the Lumia Ui to show up in the Nokia 8. It had nothing to do with Apple LOL.

People bring up Apple because they are insecure with whatever they're comparing Apple to.
