Copper Sony Xperia Z3, SmartBand Talk leaked in press images

The Sony event at the Berlin IFA 2014 is just hours away, and the leaks keep on coming, trying to anticipate even more of what we’ll probably see. Yesterday we’ve seen an alleged picture of the Sony Xperia Z3, with a spec-sheet glued to its back; that piece of paper, among specs, also mentioned a copper flavor, alongside black and white, and it’s that exact new variant seems to have leaked today, in the images above and below.

There’s little to see here, aside from the new copper Sony Xperia Z3, but the image below also seems to feature a fourth color; call it yellow, green, or lime, it looks to be something we’ve not seen before, for a nice line-up of colored Xperia Z3 devices.

Additionally, the press shot leaked also unveils a new wearable accessory pictured below. It appears to feature a curved e-ink display, and the report claims that we’re likely looking at the “SmartBand Talk”. It will all become official later today, and we encourage you to keep checking back for our full hands-on and comparison coverage from Berlin.

Nokia Storyteller gets final pre-Cyan update, Living Images working on the Lumia 930

Published by at 18:28 UTC, July 3rd 2014

We’ve had small tasters of Nokia’s Living Images system, of course, plus we’ve learned that the older Lumia 1020 won’t get the feature for stability reasons. But even on the newer and highest specified Lumia 1520, all the dots are still not joined up. Today sees an update to Nokia Storyteller (curiously still with the ‘Nokia’ branding!), v2.1.0.4, that adds the final touches to the application itself, with only the main Lumia Cyan update itself left to hit, at some point in the next couple of weeks. And for the brand new Lumia 930, which is hitting the first shops this week, this update fixes stability issues, making the Storyteller experience more reliable.

The Lumia 930 is due here for review imminently, but most people reading this will be looking forward to playing with Cyan, with Storyteller and with Living Images. Once Cyan appears (as an over the air update) for the Lumia 1520, in particular, this new version of Nokia Storyteller will be fully functional, working hand in hand with Nokia Camera to grab batches of stills and videos, as already detailed here.

Older and less capable handsets won’t be compatible with Living Images and this aspect of Nokia Storyteller, for performance reasons – even the 1020 wasn’t deemed capable enough, after much testing.

For completeness, the full changelog for Nokia Storyteller v2.1.0.4, over the version that shipped originally, is:

  • Living Images are displayed in Nokia Storyteller
  • Photos and videos in a story are combined with a backing track to create a 30-second story video
  • Nokia Storyteller integrates with Nokia Creative Studio and Nokia Video Trimmer for editing your photos and videos
  • Location data is associated with your photos within Nokia Storyteller

Interestingly, we still haven’t heard whether the Lumia 920 and 925 will be getting Living Images support. My guess is ‘no’, but then the smaller sensors and image pipelines in these devices might just make the concept feasible. Watch this space.

We’ll also be able to give our impressions of the feature, and Storyteller in its full form, on the Lumia 930, when it turns up.

From our earlier story:

Live “Living Images” can be viewed in Windows Phone’s standard camera roll, as shown in the embedded video, but can also be exported to Facebook and other social networking sites. Living images will also be created automatically when capturing photos using Nokia’s (Camera,) Cinemagraph and Refocus will also appear as “Living Images”, and will also be “bought to life” in the camera roll.

Living Images not coming to the Nokia Lumia 1020 because of stability issues

Published by at 13:30 UTC, July 2nd 2014

Despite working after a fashion in Nokia Camera Beta, Living Images won’t officially be supported on the Nokia Lumia 1020 when Cyan rolls out, it transpires (from a reliable source), because of ‘stability’ issues. Which, when you think about it, is perhaps understandable…

The idea behind Living Images, last mentioned in the context of Nokia Camera beta here, is that images are constantly saved into RAM while focussing and taking a shot, and a short video is then composed and added before the final photo in the Photos gallery on Windows Phones. So, when flicking through photos, each comes to a life for a fraction of a second before settling on the eventual shot. It’s a great idea.

The concept does depend on the image processing being practical though, and the Lumia 1020’s slower processor and larger camera array means that there are clearly technical challenges to getting the Living Images working on this older (albeit with higher raw quality) hardware. Nokia seems to have tested Living Images in Photos on the 1020 and decreed that it’s too marginal and unreliable for mass market rollout.

The Lumia Icon, 1520 and 930 all have much faster chipsets and smaller image pipelines, making features such as continuous auto-focus, ultra fast burst modes and, yes, Living Image support fully practical. I’ll continue to monitor the progress of the technology on the editorial Lumia 1520 and will report back.

In the meantime, Lumia 1020 owners shouldn’t feel too miffed. The whole point of the 1020 was to get photos with absolute quality, not to get lost in interactive ‘gimmicks’ (and I use the term here with affection!) like Living Images!

Of interest, from our earlier stories:

Live “Living Images” can be viewed in Windows Phone’s standard camera roll, as shown in the embedded video, but can also be exported to Facebook and other social networking sites. Living images will also be created automatically when capturing photos using Nokia’s Cinemagraph and Refocus will also appear as “Living Images”, and will also be “bought to life” in the camera roll.
