Microsoft Windows Phone 8.1 Updates: From Selfies to Touchless Controls


Recommended Posts

Pair of updates is expected in Q3 and Q4 for Windows Phone 8.1

From DailyTech:

Some of you may have reacted with incredulity to HTC Corp.'s (TPE:2498) recent chat about the importance of the self-portrait -- better known in the smartphone era as the "selfie". Indeed, according to HTC's internal statistics -- which it did not clearly explain the methodology of -- up to 90 percent of smartphone photos in some regions are self-portraits with the front-facing camera. (The term "selfie" can also refer to group shots taken with the front-facing camera.)

But love the selfie or hate it, HTC is not the only phonemaker obsessed with delivering the perfect selfie. According to a new report by The Verge, Microsoft Corp.'s (MSFT) recently-acquired smartphone unit is planning a Nokia Lumia that will take aim at producing the best selfie around. Dubbed "Superman" the device is expected to launch in H2 2013, and match the 2014 HTC One (M8) with a 5 megapixel-front facing camera.
