Improved ACCESSIBILTY features


Nokia Beamer is a cool app that lets you remotely share your device display with another internet-connected device


The Nokia Camera app combines a number of previous camera offerings, with Nokia Pro Camera and Smart Camera rolling together. That means less switching between lenses to get to pro features, like changing the ISO, or smart features like motion focus or best shot.


One of the best app from nokia., Like taking an HDR photo, you’ll need to keep the phone steady for the duration of the capture for the best result.But it is available only for device with 1GB RAM.so 520,620,720 cant able to enjoy this feature


There’s another app that pertains to imaging and that’s Storyteller. Again, you’ll need to download it. Nokia Storyteller neatly takes over the organisation of your photos to help arrange them more dynamically.

This is all some of  the features,you will be getting with lumia black update.
