Nokia camera app has appeared on Google Play Store with version number 91.9.1133.80 but the application is not yet available currently for any of the Nokia smartphones. As per the changelog, the update is a major one and it will bring some new features related to company’s dual-sight mode.

The changelog, as detailed by Nokiapoweruser, HMD Global is enabling a new feature inside Dual-Sight mode called ‘You Decide’. The feature allows users to line one side of the picture or video, double tap to freeze it and then re-position the camera to get the best angle. Double-tap the second half and your image is saved to your device.

Within Dual-Sight mode, Nokia camera users can also use the ‘Infinity Adjust’ feature to adjust the proportion when taking photos or videos. This will allow you to decide whether to show more from your front or rear camera. The updated version of the app cannot be installed on any of the devices for now but the screenshots and accompanying changelog paint a very clear picture of what to expect from Nokia’s camera software.

HMD Global has been focusing on software prowess of its devices as a way to differentiate itself from other brands. The company has been constantly pushing out new software for its devices and is among few brands to have released Android 9 Pie for its smartphone, the Nokia 7 plus. The Finnish company, trying to resurrect Nokia’s lost reputation, has been working to make its devices more competitive than rivals.

HMD Global’s current lineup includes Nokia 8 Sirocco, Nokia 8, Nokia 7 plus, Nokia 6.1 Plus, Nokia 6.1, Nokia 5.1 Plus, Nokia 5.1, Nokia 3.1 Plus, Nokia 3.1, Nokia 2.1, Nokia 2 and Nokia 1.
