Higher quality photos in low light conditions are now possible for users of Nokia 1.3 in 27 countries with the new Night Mode feature that Google has introduced in its Camera Go app. Some other entry-level devices have also got the feature and it will be expanded to a wider range of devices in the coming months.
All users who have Camera Go on these devices will be able to take higher quality pictures with brighter and more accurate colours even when they are in low light conditions such as dimly-lit indoor spaces or outdoors at night. The Night Mode also has the ability to automatically capture more than one shot simultaneously and merging them together to produce clearer low light photos. Users can enable the new feature as an alternative to flash mode when a flash is not suitable, and still take great photos without the need to adjust camera settings.
Joris van Mens, Product Manager at Google’s Next Billion Users initiative says, “We want to provide people using entry-level smartphones access to a high quality camera experience. For many, capturing moments in low light is a matter of trial and error. Taking night-time photos requires them to experiment with complicated settings. With Night Mode in Nokia 1.3 and other devices, preserving memories and capturing great photos will be easier for everyone.”
Nokia 1.3 – modern technology at an affordable price
The Nokia 1.3 comes packed with a beautiful 5.71 inches HD+ edge to edge display that features a notch. The new feature on the Camera Go ensures that all the photos captured with this device are beautifully presented on this display no matter what the conditions.
The brightness of the display can reach a maximum of up to 400 nits. This combined with the AI-powered low-light image fusion technology allows users to capture, and view, even more memories, at any time of the day. In addition to a rear 8MP autofocus camera with LED Flash, Nokia 1.3 comes with a 5MP front-facing camera and brightness boost, so you can take your selfies to the next level.
Juho Sarvikas, Chief Product Officer and Vice President, North America, HMD Global, said:
“The Nokia 1.3 offers an accessible Android experience to fans across the world. As one of the first smartphones to debut the all new Camera Go app last year, we are delighted to take this next step with Google.
From today, users in 27 countries will have the opportunity to capture even more memories, from dusk till dawn, without worrying about running out of storage.
Our goal is to build on what an affordable smartphone can deliver, without compromising on modern tech essentials and this certainly does that.”
Night Mode is not yet available in Blu Studio X10, Positivo Twist 2 Pro, and Positivo Twist 3 Pro.
