Symbian 9.5 launches
Symbian, the operating system for smartphones, has announced an updated version of its software.
Symbian 9.5 builds on version 9.0 by promising a faster device start-up time, faster start-up time of applications by up to 75%, and improvements on the current battery life of Symbian smartphones.
It will also support multimedia applications with advanced camera features that it claims are similar to standalone digital cameras. 35 new camera features include support for tilt sensors, preset image enhancements, panorama stitching, and red-eye reduction.
Other key features include the capacity to store thousands of contacts and the introduction of Brahmic script support, which extends Symbian's support of languages to cover 99% of the world's countries.
Symbian 9.5 is backward compatible with all versions of the v9 family.
