Lumia Black now available for the Lumia 620 in India

Lumia Black Lumia 620

Head to India and you’ll see that the Nokia Lumia 520, Lumia 720 and Lumia 620 are the most popular Windows Phone handsets. You’ll also find that the Lumia Black firmware update is already out for the Lumia 520 and Lumia 720, but not the Lumia 620. However, that changes today. Reports are coming in that the update is available.

Lumia Black is probably the last big update your Lumia 620 will see before getting Windows Phone 8.1 in the near future. Your Lumia 620 will gain a few new features thanks to Lumia Black. Look forward to a ton of new improvements to the Glance screen including new colors, notifications and custom text.

Want Lumia Black on your Lumia 620 in India? Head to your settings, scroll down to phone update and tap ‘check for update’. Good luck and welcome to Black!

Be sure to head into the Lumia 620 Forums if you run into any troubles or need to talk to fellow Lumia 620 owners.

Thanks for the tips everyone!

Lumia Black now available for the Lumia 620 in India

Ni siquiera utilizando NSU o Nokia software recovery tool. Yo tengo un 920 en iusacell y no puedo actualizar aún. / not even using NSU o NSRT. i have a iusacell 920 and cannot upgrade.       nokia page says not even amber is available for me. 

Con el Nokia recovery tool si encuentra la actualización más reciente, pero no quiero perder mi configuración :(

Yo también tengo un 920... pero el 1020 de mi hermana, tiene Amber, y desde hace 3 semanas que dice la página de nokia que ya debe estar disponible... pero nada!!! :/

Well they also didn't mention when the update became available for Lumia 720 here in Lithuania! Being more serious, it all depends on the market - to my knowledge, WP is super popular in India (compared to the rest of the world) and thus WPC has many followers from that country.

You bet!But its a tough competition here becoz of the cheap Android phones like Micromax and Carbonn.Still its surprising that WP is growing silently becoz more and more people are moving to a Simple Wp Os than a complicated Droid one.

Was just about to message the same thing! Just installed on my girlfriends 620 - great little phone just got better!

Hey Sam

this is not original pic for 620, it is screenshot from some other phone and posted over this 620.
See battery icon its showing phone is on charging but no charger is connected

After 2 months this is not good from Nokia. I have many Lumia users who are still on amber and acting dumb saying wp is not that good. Such dumbfucks

On the bright side, it's actually not last. Lumia Black for 521 on T-Mobile isn't out yet, and people are still telling me to stop criticizing T-Mobile... I sense some T-Mobile employees.

I had completely forgotten about this update for Lumia and have just checked my wife's 620. Low and behold, the Black update is available for it (UK unbranded, SIM free). I'm now in the process of updating her phone.
To be honest though, I didn't find the Black update for my 1020 or the wife's 920 to be anything special or groundbreaking so neither of us could care less about the Black update for her 620.

Now imagine how long will take to most of the users, the "normal" people, to receive the WP8.1.
I think Nokia don't need to add anything new to those phones. Just release WP8.1 the way it is.

I'm not a fan of the way Nokia are doing their updates. They are too slow like Android. They own 90% + of the Windows Phone market share so why not put there crappy software in line with all Windows Phones so updated are released quicker.

They have to check that the firmware is received perfectly. I know it has been very slow from them but it happens with android phones to as google releases their latest os only for few new devices and it takes 1 year more by everyone to upgrade the operating system due to firmware updates. Many Android users are still on 4.1 and 4.4 is also getting old. So chuck it bro

I recently talked my sister-in-law to dump AT&T, switch to Aio Wireless and get the L620 since she's on a really limited budget.  So far she likes the 620 and doesn't know that Lumia Black is not yet available.  Hopefully it won't be long, so that I can give her a nice surprise.

i don't know. Installed preview when it released. And got the lumia black update two weeks ago. earlier there was news about black update.. i think you missed it

Didnt bother anymore for the update but as I got up in the morning alert "update available" came so just installed. I do not find much difference except double tap to wake.. Anyway better late than never...

Lumia Black is probably the last big update your Lumia 620 will see before getting Windows Phone 8.1 in the near future. Your Lumia 620 will gain a few new features thanks to Lumia Black. Look forward to a ton of new improvements to the Glance screen including new colors, notifications and custom text.

Black update not required for this, Glance 2 can be installed without this.

 

Not necessarily. You can get these by installing the Glance Background app. 

My 620's on developer preview GDR3 without Black and yet after installing Glance background I got all the new colors, notifications and custom text.

Not available in Hong Kong.  I wish I get it before the Windows Phone 8.1 Developer Preview becomes available. I live in India, but bought the phone from Hong Kong. So those saying "Got it two weeks ago" must have purchased it from UAE, Finland or Netherlands.

black update for 625 is already released in january in india.but i cannot see update on my lumia 625 .its just showing up to date when checking.plz help

I said double tap to unlock. Like when you double tap and it takes you straight to the start screen without needing to unlock the phone at the lock screen. I know dttw works fine.

got the black update yesterday,its download size is 211mb n only downloadable via WiFi n took some 30+minutes to install n reboot,it now supports new glance,double tap,win keys vibration off screen rotation lock n close option for running apps..oh yeaaaaah...now i am starting to like winphone----sending this from my 620

The Lumia 620 still waiting for the black update in South Africa and it is the only phone missing an update in Africa. Honestly, feeling frustrated!
