Nokia 8 has received a new update which is rolling out globally that brings the Pro Camera Mode to the phone. The Nokia 8 Pro Camera Mode comes with several new features such as manual control over focus, ISO, shutter speed and more. The update with version number 4.88B is a little more than 600MB in size and is rolling out for all Nokia 8 users.
HMD Global launched the Nokia 8 back in 2017 as it’s first flagship smartphone. Despite being a flagship phone, it had flaws like the lack of a Pro mode in its camera that later arrived with the Nokia 8 Sirocco and the Nokia 7 Plus. However, the company has now confirmed that the Pro Camera mode is now available to all Nokia 8 handsets as well.

Earlier this month, the company’s CPO Juho Sarvikas has explained via Twitter the reason why HMD Global took so much time to roll out the Pro Mode feature update. But now, the Nokia 8 is finally receiving the much-awaited pro mode features on its dual camera setup.
