Mobile wars come and go but it should be pretty obvious by now that the camera has become one of the major fields of battles. And while companies like Sony and Nokia work tirelessly to bring the best imaging experience to their users, some have lagged behind.
One of the companies which has been slow to react is Google, with the cameras on its Nexus series of phones producing just about adequate imagery, plagued by softness and slow shutter speeds. Hopefully, that's all about to change.
It seems that Google has plans to entirely overhaul the Android camera app in the near future, looking at a software solution to the sluggish performance. That could also mean releasing the app on the Google Play Store to make it available to all Android users.
According to NDTV.com, they're also working on refreshing the UI and featuring a viewfinder that actually shows the entire area that you'll photograph as well as access to third party filters. This move could show just how big a difference the software can make to camera functionality, rather than other manufacturers chasing better hardware.
