Good news Nokia Lumia owners: everyone will be able to use the fancy new camera tech that the new Lumia 925 comes packing, thanks to an “amber” software update that’ll be hitting your phones soon.

The new Nokia Smart Camera mode allows the camera to capture ten images at once, and offers the post-processing features you can find in a bunch of other phones at the moment like Best Shot and an Action Mode. Basically it’s Nokia’s version of the HTC Zoe, but each sequential shot being 5MP —“something no one else does”, apparently.

There's currently no word on how far back that update will stretch — whether it includes the folks stuck on Windows Phone 7.8 with the Lumia 800 or 900 for instance — but we’ll update when we know.
