By now it seems to be an open secret that Windows Phone 8 will be getting HD 1080P support in GDR3, a small OS update due in November.
That version of the OS is expected to debut on the Nokia Lumia 1520, a device reportedly being announced on October 22nd in Abu Dhabi and later released in the US in early November. Likewise, Verizon Wireless is supposed to get a similar 1080P Windows Phone 8 device dubbed the Lumia 929.
This morning, Nokia has updated their selfie photo app Glam Me to version 220.127.116.11. The app was recently treated to a nice overhaul back in July and today’s update seems quite minor, at least according to the changelog:
New in version 1.6:
- Support for higher display resolution
Call us crazy, but we were already under the impression that Glam Me, which was first revealed at Mobile World Congress earlier this year, already supported 1280 x 768 display resolution. In fact, comparing version 1.6 to version 1.5 reveals no visual differences.
That new support for higher display resolution sounds like 1080P support to us--either that or just a huge coincidence, considering the timing. It remains to be seen just how much reconfiguration apps need to have to support 1080P on Windows Phone, but presumably some camera apps will need slight adjustments here and there. Could Glam Me be the first of these updates? We’ll have to wait and see what else happens over the next few weeks as Nokia prepares the stage for their next series of devices.
Anyway, if you need a top notch self-shot app, you can head to the Nokia Collection to update Glam Me to version 1.6.
