HMD's Nokia 8
is far from being a perfect flagship, but some of the phone's flaws could be addressed by the Finnish company very easily via software updates. One such issue is the lack of a Pro mode, as well as some new features and improvements that come with the new camera app included in the Nokia 8 Sirocco
and Nokia 7 plus
HMD Global has been talking about the so-called Pro Camera update for a few months now and promised to bring it to its older Nokia devices at some point. Nokia 8
is one of the phones that will certainly benefit from the Pro Camera update, so if you've been waiting patiently for the update to arrive, you'll have to wait a bit more.
The company's CPO Juho Sarvikas recently explained why it took HMD so much time to deliver the promised Pro Camera update and confirmed Nokia 8
owners won't have to wait too long to get it now.
We need to overhaul the entire imaging framework. We have been working on it for months. Taking longer that I anticipated but now looks good. We will update shortly.
If you've been a bit dissatisfied with the quality of the pictures taken with the Nokia 8, the Pro Camera update should consistently improve some of the camera's downsides.
