Listening to customers, HMD Global will be launching a new Nokia Pro camera app for all its ZEISS equipped Nokia smartphones. Despite the amazing camera hardware that ships on these high end Nokia devices, the previous camera app was not up to the par in the slightest. The new upcoming Pro camera app would be arriving with full manual controls which users can change on the fly. From early screenshots, we also see a revised User Interface as well. The compatibility for this app is quite logical, it works with high end camera modules with ZEISS optics, devices below that would not be able to run Nokia Pro camera app.
Speaking of the older camera app, phones like the Nokia 8 which came equipped with ZEISS glass were really let down due to the over-simplicity of the built-in camera application. Features like manual exposure, focus, ISO were missing. All in all, the hardware had potential but it was let down by the software. Fortunately, even though a little late, HMD Global has acknowledged this and has taken steps to rectify the situation. You can read ahead to get exact compatibility for Nokia Pro camera app.
Nokia Pro Camera App – Compatibility:
As in the MWC 2018 conference, HMD Global simply stated that phones with ZEISS optics would be getting the newly designed and developed Nokia Pro camera app and this means the follow devices would be eligible.
- Nokia 6 2018
- Nokia 7
- Nokia 7 Plus
- Nokia 8
- Nokia 8 Sirocco
For phones not having eligible camera hardware, HMD Global will most probably come out with a slimmed down version of this app which is quite logical. Rather than providing all premium features on a lower priced smartphone, HMD Global will use this app as a segregation between the ranges.
