Nokia’s Amber Software Update Will Bring Smart Camera Features to Older Lumia Devices

Buried deep beneath Nokia’s fancy new Lumia 925 announcement, the company also revealed its new Smart Camera features will come to older Lumia devices. Referred to as “Amber,” the software update, which Nokia explained to TechnoBuffalo in an interview, will let users capture 10 images at once and then it will process those pictures for features such as Best Shot and Action Mode. Many other phones already have these same capabilities. Similar features were most recently introduced on Samsung’s Galaxy S4 and the HTC One.

Nokia didn’t share a precise rollout, but did mention summer as a target timeframe. The company currently has a trio of excellent Lumia devices out (or announced), including the Lumia 920, the Lumia 925 and the Lumia 928. All three promise unparalleled image quality, and Nokia’s Smart Camera software only improves on the company’s optics. Other smaller features inside the Amber update include FM radio support.
