In an official statement sent to us, HMD has clarified that the Nokia Camera app update was meant for Nokia 6.1, Nokia 7 Plus and Nokia 8 Sirocco only and went out to Nokia 8 by mistake. The update has been pulled for now.
In case you are facing issues with this update on your Nokia 8 you can uninstall the update by going to settings–>Apps & Notifications–>Camera–>uninstall updates from top right dotted menu.
HMD just pushed a new Nokia Camera app update that brought a redesigned UI and lots of new changes and features to the camera app. The update is available for all the devices with exception of Nokia 1 and 2.
Now while the update brought cheers for many, Nokia 8 users are not a happy lot. We checked and can confirm that both Pro and Bokeh mode has gone missing from Nokia 8 Camera app after the update. This is a mistake and seems wrong APK may have been pushed for Nokia 8.
Many Nokia 8 user took to twitter to express their disappointment in response to our below tweet. The update now seems gone from Google Play Store for Nokia 8.
