Moto Camera app gets fresh lick of paint ahead of G6 reveal

The latest Moto Camera update doesn't bring any new features, but it does try to simplify the UI.

Published onApril 6, 2018

We’ve had a deluge of Moto G6 rumors lately, as Lenovo readies a new generation of (presumably) wallet-friendly devices. Not content with just revamping its product line-up, it seems like the company is looking to improve the Moto Camera app too.

The update, spotted by 9to5Google, shows a rejigged interface rather than any new features. That means your camera mode menu is now available by swiping to the left screen (moved from bottom right) and you get a full-screen settings menu (instead of a spillover menu overlaid on the viewfinder), for starters.

Other notable changes are a new shutter button and a quicker way to switch between auto and manual shooting— no need to visit the settings menu.

The 2018 Moto Camera update

The update hasn’t rolled out to all regions just yet (I can’t see it here in South Africa), but let us know via the comments section if you’ve got it.

Almost all details confirmed for Moto G6 line via retail listing

The update comes as Lenovo revealed plans for an April 19 event in Brazil, where it is expected to show off the Moto G6 family. The Moto G6, G6 Plus, and G6 Play are all likely to debut. Leaks suggest that the entire range is moving to 18:9 screen ratios, while both the G6 and G6 Plus are tipped to pack dual-cameras.

Lenovo is also working on the Moto Z3 Play, with the most recent leaks showing an 18:9 display, Moto Mod support, a side-mounted fingerprint scanner, and no 3.5mm audio jack.
