ativ-cameraDo you love the Windows Phone 8.1 operating system over the other two mainstream players, namely Android and iOS? If so, you would most probably be rocking to a Nokia Lumia handset, or you could be one of the rare few who are carrying a Samsung ATIV device that runs on the Windows Phone platform. Having said that, you would be pleased as punch to hear that Samsung has updated their ATIV Camera app for its Windows Phone 8.1 handsets, where it has already appeared on the Windows Phone Store as a test submission.

Do expect a fair number of new features that will arrive on the rear camera with this particular app update, where they will include Auto, Beauty Face, Best Photo, Best Face, Rich Tone (HDR), Eraser, and Night Shot. The video features will also allow one to grab a still shot from video so that you have an alternative to capture a shot from a different angle, Smooth motion and Slow motion.

Considering how the app itself will target Windows Phone 8.1-powered models only, one will have to wait until a new firmware update from Samsung is introduced before the actual Windows Phone 8.1 update. Do expect the likes of the Samsung ATIV S, Samsung ATIV SE, and the Samsung ATIV S Neo to be on the receiving end of this latest update.
