Camera Zoom in Nexus S Fix Coming Soon
EXCLUSIVE: Hard to believe, but the Google Nexus S does not have the ‘zoom’ feature in its camera app. In fact, the hardware doesn’t support zoom at all.
I tried a few third-party apps, thinking the stock Gingerbread camera app is buggy, to make the zoom feature work, but even they said “Camera does not support zoom”.
After a little tinkering around, I checked up with a few reliable sources and found out that this is not a software issue. It is actually a hardware firmware issue from Samsung and they are aware of it. The best part is, they are working on a fix which will be available very soon.
There are a number of threads on XDA forums complaining about the Nexus S not having the zoom feature. But Samsung is working on a fix which should be soon available for the Nexus S users.
