LumaFusion is a video editor that offers advanced features including color correction tools, green screen and chroma key effects, as well as all the basic features you’d expect including transitions, titles, and the ability to export files in a range of formats, qualities, and frame rates.

What makes it unusual is that it’s not just for desktop and laptop computers. LumaFusion can also run on smartphones and tablets. Up until recently it had only been available for iPhone, iPad, and Mac. But last fall the company launched an Android and ChromeOS preview. And now it’s widely available.

Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.

LumaFusion now available for Android and ChromeOS [@LumaTouch]

Popular iPhone/iPad/Mac video editor LumaFusion is now availabel for Android and ChromeOS devices. It’s available for download from Google Play for a 1-time purchase of $30. It’s also available from the Samsung Galaxy Store, which is running a sale that lets you pick it up for $21.

While those prices make it rather expensive for an Android app, it’s still pretty cheap for a versatile, powerful video editor.

  1. The Galaxy X Cover 6 offers the same advantage (SD card, removable battery and 3.5mm jack) but it comes with a relatively modern SoC, it’s 5G compatibile (for those who live in first world country, i.e. not Europe), it’s certified against dust and water, and it has a Type C USB connector…

    1. Not Europe? Even though actual uptake is only ~3%, the EU27 has >66% 5G coverage… (as of 2022 figures)

      A new Samsung Galaxy X Cover apparently sells for between €446 – €659, whereas so far the only prediction I’ve come across for the Nokia C02 is ~$150. Frankly, if it costs more than the non-convergence package of the PinePhone, I don’t know why anyone would bother buying it…

      1. Not to mention, the Samsung xCover 6 Pro comes with 4-Year Software Updates (Android 17 ?) with many Security Updates. Also it comes with a non-burning screen. It doesn’t end there, it scored an impressive 8/10 for repairability.

        Clearly, this is a device that was built with longevity in-mind. Which by all accounts makes it a consumer-friendly product, as opposed to something like the Galaxy Fold or Ultra which are consumer-hostile products (high price, low durability, low repairability, lack of features, etc).

      2. mmWave is nearly absent in Europe and if we use the low band coverage the US has reached nearly 100% of the population, so yeah, not Europe.

        About the C02, the article didn’t really make a point about its price and there’s certainly people who are willing to spend more than $150 for a significantly more capable device with those features.

        1. See the comments beneath the article here: https://www.policytracker.com/blog/mmwave-the-transatlantic-divide/

          which is supported by https://5gobservatory.eu/observatory-overview/international-5g-scoreboard/

          so whilst clearly more bandwidth could be allocated, mmwave isn’t necessarily the be-all and end-all in this case.

          Interestingly the international 5G scoreboard might indicate that there are more 5G base stations per 100,000 population in the EU27 than in the US, which might explain why coverage appears as high as 66%.

          Inforgraphic at https://gsacom.com/technology/5g/ would indicate that there are significantly more providers launching 5G services or investing in the infrastructure to do so over 2022 than in the Americas or As-Pac.

  2. Nokia is always on of my favorite brands and one feature that I would prefer over all other is the removable battery. While, most of the brands are now sticking to the fixed battery because of which after some time when the battery doesn’t give you enough backup time, we had to replace the phone. I think this could be a USP of this phone.

  3. How in 2023 did Nokia manage to come up with an entry level phone that has the benefits of the dev PinePhone (card reader, removeable battery, headphone jack) but still with worse specs…microUSB – seriously?! Even the screensize of the C02 is smaller
