Lumia 520 “Black” update rolling out now on AT&T

lumia520-3

The next phone to pick up the coveted Lumia Black update is the ultra popular Nokia Lumia 520 on AT&T. The update started rolling out to devices last night. The Lumia Black update includes all the features of GDR3, plus a few exclusive Nokia features. This update has been adding double-tap to wake to most Lumia 520’s, but the AT&T version actually had it from the start. Here’s what else you’ll get:

  • 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.

To check for the update you can go to Settings>Phone Update>Check for update. If it’s available it should only take a few minutes to download and install. If it’s not yet available it should be very soon. Is your phone running Lumia Black yet?

Thanks Mike and Jay!
