The next announcement at this morning’s London event was the new camera software debuting on the Lumia line. Being made available via an upcoming “Amber Software Update” due in July, the Smart Camera app provides a bevy of features to make any photo bug happy. Features include improved low-light performance and noise reduction which will burst capture at 5-megapixels with the full 8.7-megapixels available in single-shooting mode, combine several images for a slow-mo effect in Action shot, allow the camera or you choose one of 10 frames that gives the best overall image in best shot and will add a blur effect to the background while keeping moving objects in focus with the option to adjust the level of blur later in motion focus.
So far the Nokia 925 has been confirmed for T-Mobile in the US however pricing and launch dates have not been made available.
