Nokia launches brand new camera interface

Nokia launches brand new camera interface
Today, Nokia unveiled that it is bringing a brand new camera interface to its phones, a modern, swipe-based interface that will replace the current camera UI with its dated looks.

The update will first come to the popular Nokia 6.1 Plus, and then to most other Nokia phones as the company rolls out Android 9 Pie.

The new camera interface is styled a bit like the camera UI on the Apple iPhone with a big shutter button in the bottom center and with different modes that you vertically swipe to change.

Nokia has also bundled two signature Google features in this new camera: the Google Lens that recognizes what's in an image and allows you to search the web to learn more about it, and the Motion Stills feature that allows you to create fun, short animations.

All of this sounds like a solid update to one of the weakest parts of the Nokia UI experience. For all the rest, Android One takes care with its clean interface and fast updates. Not a bad combination, is it?

Google Lens can already be accessed on the Nokia 6 (2017). Still, it looks like a refreshing update.

Hopefully, it is not only the UI that is updated. Camera processing needs updating also.

another proof that Nokia is no longer a Finish brand but a Chinese one... copying notches, designs and now interfaces as well... they are oh so original...

That doesn’t mean that at all. People like you just have a ridiculous hate for all things Chinese, and once you heard that a subsidiary of Foxconn is involved with HMD, your hate went out of bounds. HMD is a Finnish company, as is Nokia. They are two separate entities.

Your new website design is very slow & obviously data hungry. It sucks on smartphone.

You gotta upgrade your phone.

You are complaining as if you are playing PUBG on ultra settings on a mid end phone.
