Nokia 5 Android Oreo Beta Update Brings an All-New Nokia Camera Application

HMD Global has started rolling out Android 8.0 Beta Build for Nokia 5 users. The Oreo update brings in some new and hidden changes to the Nokia camera app. The new camera app will now support telephoto camera mode and a wide-angle mode. The app shows 2x optical telephoto zoom that is standard among dual camera smartphones.

However, the Nokia 5 doesn’t come with dual cameras, so it won’t be able to support these features. This news is reported by NokiaMob.

The only dual camera smartphone that Nokia has launched is Nokia 8, and it comes with identical field of view on both sensors. The app update possibly suggests that future smartphones will make use of these features. Another possibility is the Nokia 5 in 2018 will come with dual camera sensors.

The other change in the Nokia Camera app is that icons for shutter speed and ISO have appeared. Users can manually change the shutter speed and ISO on Nokia 5. The value for the ISO can range between 100 to 2000 while that of shutter speed can range between 1/500s and 1s. Other devices like Nokia 7 or Nokia 8 will have higher or lower numbers, depending on the settings.

Additionally, the Nokia Camera app version 8.0200.20 comes with a new simplified UI that can be seen everywhere from Camera, Video modes to settings, imaging, and video options. The UI brings more features such as time-lapse video, slow-mo video modes for the camera.

While none of the cameras so far support dual telephoto and wide angle support, rumours suggest that the upcoming Nokia 9 may debut will such features. The Nokia 9 is expected to come with a secondary telephoto sensor that will make its camera different from the dual configuration on Nokia 8. Nokia 9 could launch in January 2018, and the Nokia Camera app will be preloaded on the device.

Meanwhile, users interested to download Android Oreo beta for Nokia 5 can head over to Nokia.com and fill in their IMEI number and network operator details. Once your device is successfully enrolled, you will get the Android 8.0 beta build via over the air (OTA) update.

I love my Nokia 6. This phone is selling like hot cakes in all bricks and mortar shops after getting available on offline sales. I loved their design and interface which I felt better than a I phone.
