Nokia Lumia 928 for Verizon getting “Lumia Black” update now


The next stop on the Lumia Black tour goes to the Nokia Lumia 928 for Verizon. This update has been rolling out to Lumia phones for several weeks now, but the Lumia 928 has been holding out. That is most likely due to Verizon’s slow movement. Today it has started popping up on Lumia 928s across the country. Let’s take a look once again at what Lumia Black has to offer.

  • 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.

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. Until Verizon gets the Lumia Icon the 928 remains to be the flagship Windows Phone on Big Red. It’s nice to see it continue to be updated with the latest and greatest from Microsoft and Nokia.

Thanks Walt, Mike, and Nic!
