Talking about the Nokia camera app, recently it was reported that HMD Global could also bring the Nokia Lumia camera UI to smartphones soon. The Finnish company has received around 500 patents as a part of the acquisition deal from Microsoft, one of which is for the ‘Lumia Camera UI’ . As spotted by the Nokia Mob website, if the design patent takes shape in real life, future Nokia smartphones could bring back the Lumia Camera UI, which was found in Nokia Lumia smartphones when they were sold under Microsoft brand name.
It is worth adding that trademarks for PureView, ClearBlack or PureMotion are still with Microsoft. However these too may be transferred to HMD Global as there are 200 more patents left, according to EUIPO or European Union Intellectual Property Office. It is not clear how or when HMD Global plans to bring the Lumia Camera UI to Nokia smartphones. However, what we know for sure is that the company is working on Nokia 8 for now, a smartphone tipped to feature dual rear cameras.
