Leaked Nokia 8 live pictures show the phone's camera UI (hint: it's not pretty)
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.
