It was reported a few weeks ago that Nokia was preparing a firmware revision for the Lumia 920 (and other Windows Phone 8 Lumias) that would continue to bring Nokia’s vision of how a Windows Phone should be to fruition.
That update is now being referred to as PR2.0 and we have an exclusive quick glimpse of some of those new features for you.
One of those new additions was a ‘double tap the display’ to awaken the phone, a novel method first seen in Nokia’s N9 (and is much easier than BlackBerry’s current “swipe up” method in the Z10). Windows Phone Central has also learned that a new, always-on clock will now be optionally allowed on the display and brings back memories of our Treo 800w days.
There are a few other things coming down the pike too including ‘Smart Camera’, another new Lens akin to the current ‘Smart Shoot’ but reportedly brings Blink like features Nokia-style. We’ll have more on that later.
