When Nokia 8 arrived, we all thought that it will bring the Nokia Camera more, or user interface, which could make that camera centric phone more “professionally” usable. But, Nokia 8 came with pretty much similar UI and set of controls seen before on the Nokia 6 but enriched by few more options. We know that HMD got the rights to use the Nokia Camera UI from Microsoft, and we all remember how easy was to control the pro options of the camera with that UI.
Now Vtech asked Juho Sarvikas, the CPO of the HMD Global, to bring the Pro Camera mode back to the Nokia 8, since that option should be mush have for camera centric flagship as Nokia 8 is. Juho simply answered that they care for fans feedback, and that he will look into it. Well, that doesn’t give any hope we will actually see the Nokia Camera UI soon, but reveals that HMD is working on something like that.
Maybe they are preparing that the Camera Pro UI for the supposed Nokia 9, but if that is true, then we won’t see that before the MWC2018 in Barcelona when the Nokia 9 could be unveiled. If it happens before, and I think it should, then that is going to be a cool and smart move for HMD.
Maybe the Camera Pro interface could look like in the photo below, a combination between the old Nokia and new Nokia Camera app?
