A few smartphone manufacturers have started building dedicated “Night Modes” into their camera software. This involves using a bit of software trickery to improve imaging performance in low light conditions. Google has done this to great effect with its Pixel devices and Samsung has recently tried to replicate it as well. A new report suggests that HMD Global might be close to rolling out a dedicated Night Mode for Nokia phones.
HMD Global is expected to unveil a new Nokia-branded smartphone next week and it may also announce a new Night Mode feature which would be similar to the one present in the Google Camera app.
Even the teaser that HMD Global has posted on Twitter for its June 6th announcement hints at the possibility of a new Night Mode for the company’s devices. However, it remains unclear if this software improvement will be limited to the new device or if HMD Global will eventually be rolling it out for existing devices as well.
The Night Mode functionality has been well received on other devices so Nokia fans will appreciate that the company has developed something similar for them. Whether or not it would be able to match Google’s software in terms of results remains to be seen.
