Nokia ‘Lumia Black’ update rolling out to Lumia 920 and 820


Last week Nokia started rolling out the Lumia Black update to a few select phones around the world. They said the rest of Lumia phones will start getting the update in the coming weeks. Today the second wave of updates has started to arrive on unlocked Lumia 920 and 820 handsets. To see if yours is getting the update check this page.

So, what’s new in Lumia Black? A lot of stuff.

  • Glance Screen 2.0: New in 2.0 is the ability to see all of your lockscreen notifications right on the Glance Screen instead of just time and alarm.
  • Bluetooth LE: All Windows Phone 8 Lumia devices will now be Bluetooth Low Energy enabled. This means devices like the Fitbit will be compatible. All we need is the apps.
  • Nokia Focus will now be available to you if your device has 1GB of RAM or more.
  • Nokia Beamer can now share documents, presentations, and photos to any HTML5-enabled screen.
  • Nokia Storyteller is now available to all phones running Lumia Black.
  • Nokia Camera has been available to PureView phones for a while, but now it is available to any Lumia running the Black update. The Black update also improves image quality.

You can check if the update is available on your phone by going to Settings>Phone Update>Check for update. Let us know if your device has received the update!

Thanks everyone!
