This app could come loaded with the Google’s next smartphone, Google Nexus 5 or be a part of the next version of the Google Android operating system, Key Lime pie. The rumor has its roots from the patent filed by Google, where it states that a system would make use of the on-board GPS and the weather conditions downloaded from the internet, to make suitable changes to the various sensors available on the camera.
