Nokia Lumia 920 purchases have Portico update pre-installed

We've just got word from a Windows Phone Central reader that the Portico update is pre-installed in a Lumia 920 which was received from Dutch retailer KPN. According to the tip the build presently listed on the device (8.0.10211.204) matches what we've previously reported on when talking about the latest Windows Phone 8 update.

There has been speculation that Nokia is pushing out hardware with the latest build already installed, which is now confirmed with the recent reports. The company has had the update on its servers (though some were pulled) for some time but should you still be waiting on the update to hit your Lumia 920, there's a way to retrieve it manually.

Thanks, Daenney, for the heads up!

Nokia Lumia 920 purchases have Portico update pre-installed


It was the image on the phone that was suppose to be representative of Portico. We assumed our readers would "get it" but alas, we underestimated you.

None of this of course has anything to do with the story at hand...

Maybe he's becoming a little jaded over those who nitpick about the seemingly unimportant details. I know I would be.

What kind of stubid comment is that from you daniel, always respected you and bought wpcentral app too and thats how you treat..

Now now, you new to this site? Daniel isn't a stranger to leaving the occasional obnoxious comment or unfriendly response to a question! But then again aren't we all?

Being an early adopter is like being a pioneer. You always end up with an arrow in your back. Now that you know, don't be an early adopter next time.

My new replacement Lumia 920 I got from AT&T that was shipped on Dec 28 had the Portico update installed.

Well the report is from over in Europe. I'm saying it's also been that way in the US since at least Dec 28.

Yes the US AT&T phones get the update. This hasn't been news for weeks. Which is why I'm wondering why you brought that up. The point from the article is that for first time, a non US Lumia gets Portico.

Please stop being jerks guys. Daniel or anyone else can put whatever picture they want. And clearly the 8x was running Portico. :p

Same for me...got an insurance replacement, brand new, not a refurb, yesterday that had the update pre-installed. way to go Nokia/AT&T

I posted that my AT&T 920 came with Portaco installed back in 2012 - ok it WAS sold to me 3 minutes before closing time Dec 31st but is this still news?

Admittedly, if it had been an HTC phone, no-one would have believed me ;D

I just had a replacement device and it came with the update preinstalled. I am not sure if you guys are taking about the same thing.

Devices released in India have the update installed. Looks like all new devices released will be having this update.

Anyone picked up a new 920 in the UK with portico pre installed? My upgrade date is 8 days away and I plan on going into the store and picking up a Lumia 920 that morning.

Also Singtel Singapore pushing Porticos apparently...if there is stock ;-)
But no OTA yet...but certified ROM from Nokia, so DIY, hehe...

My HTC 8x had to be replaced just 28 days in, happened two days ago. The like-for-like replacement came with Portico pre-installed. (unlocked from Phones4U, UK)

Nothing for the 920 here in Australia yet on Telstra. ..hoping this happens soon as the camera is not worth using at the moment. In fact I keep ducking back to my old iPhone for snaps...any news would be greatly appreciated as I'd rather not complete the upgrade myself from Nokia's software app.

I just bought my Lumia 920 with Optus but portico doesn't seem to be preinstalled. How do you figure out whether it is or not? I checked in 'settings/about' but I don't know what portico's number is
