Today Nokia revealed that a new version of Nokia City Lens will come along with the upcoming Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 Windows Phone devices. Nokia City Lens is a augmented reality browser that overlays local content over the camera view finder mode. Nokia recently released its first version of City Lens exclusively to Lumia Windows Phone device owners. Today Nokia revealed that they will be shipping a new version of City Lens with more features in Lumia 920 and Lumia 820.
The first to be introduced will be a new 3D icons layout, which is going to make the augmented reality experience look even more realistic. We are also going to fix a common problem of augmented reality apps. If you donâ€™t see a place in real life, because itâ€™s hidden behind a building, you might want to see it or not among nearby search results. We give you the choice: you will be able to filter search results so that only those in the line of sights are visible.
The upcoming version of Nokia City Lens forÂ Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 820 is also going to make more use of Windows Phone unique features. For instance you will be able to pin to start any category tile, to find faster what you are looking for, anywhere you are. You can also customize the Nokia City Lens menu by adding your own favorite searches. Last but not least you can also use Nokia City Lens in both landscape and portrait mode.
