Nokia teases new lowlight camera feature ahead of June 6th event

“Nokia’s dedicated low-light mode could be integrated directly into the camera app”

HMD Global has scheduled an event in India on June 6th and has already sent out media invites for the launch. While it didn’t reveal anything on what’s coming, speculations are rife that it could be the Nokia 1 Plus, that was introduced at the MWC 2019 show earlier this year. Now, in the latest promotional video, posted on Twitter, the company is teasing a new camera feature announcement alongside. Though the video – which has been posted on the global as well as India Twitter accounts, doesn’t mention anything specific, the caption “See things in a new light” could be suggesting that Nokia might unveil a dedicated low-light camera mode, similar to Samsung’s Night Mode and Google’s Night Sight feature.

Separately, noted Nokia phones tipster ‘Nokia anew’ has tweeted claiming that the “Night Mode is baked,” hinting that the feature could be integrated into the upcoming Nokia phone’s camera app. Since it is a software feature, it might be made available to older Nokia phones via an update in the future. But as of this moment, it isn’t clear which model would be getting the low-light feature. It’s also possible that HMD Global might make other camera related announcements at the June 6th event.

To recall, the Nokia 1 Plus sports a 5.45-inch IPS FWVGA+ 18:9 display and is powered by the 1.5GHz MediaTek’s quad-core MT6739WW chipset paired with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of user-expandable storage. the handset ships with Android Go (Pie Edition) software out of the box. The phone also rocks an 8-megapixel camera with LED flash on the rear and a 5-megapixel snapper on the front for selfies and video chats. A 2,500mAh battery fuels the device, and in terms of connectivity options, you get 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, microUSB 2.0, and 3.5mm headphone jack. We should know the pricing and availability details when the phone goes official next week.
