Lumia 521

In January Nokia stated that the Lumia Black firmware update would be available to all in the coming weeks after its initial rollout. That didn’t exactly happen, as we’re still seeing certain regions and handsets lighting up with Lumia Black. For example, just yesterday the Lumia 620 in India received the firmware update. One little handset here in the United States still doesn’t have it. That’d be the Lumia 521, a variant of the Lumia 520 exclusive to T-Mobile. We haven’t heard much about the status of the update, but we do know it’s now listed as ‘coming soon’ on Nokia’s website.

Head on over to the Lumia Black software update page on Nokia’s website. There you’ll see that the status for Lumia Black on the Lumia 521 is now ‘coming soon’. While not as good as ‘available’, it’s much better than the ‘waiting for approval’ status that it has been on the past two months.

What’s this mean in English? We’re probably a few days away from seeing Lumia Black available for the Lumia 521. Keep us posted if you see the update over the next few days.
