permalink=”camera-6″
title=”Camera”
content=”You’ll be able to access your Camera directly from the lock screen and can even use the volume button to take a picture. That should be quite handy when shooting in horizontal orientation.

Additionally, basic photo editing features will be included — cropping, redeye reduction, and something called ‘quick enhance.’ Our guess is that it’s stripped-down lighting correction.”
