Nokia is evidently adding some more customization options for Nokia Lumia 920 users (and possibly their other WP8 Lumias). The evidence comes from the latest update of Nokia’s display + touch app, which allows users to control the SuperSensitive Touch and sunlight readability options.
Now there is a third option called “Lumia color profile”, which will allow you to make your Lumia 920 “Vivid” or “Natural” by using a slider. Likewise you can change the color temperature from “Cool” to “Warm” on a second slider.
This will be the first time on Windows Phone that users were given access to changing more than just brightness on their display and it shows how Nokia is continually offering improved experiences.
But where is it?
The images for the “Lumia Color Profile” come with the Nokia system app updates that were released today. Specifically for display + touch version 220.127.116.11. But users have noticed that this option is not available, even after installation and a soft reset.
That leads us to believe that this feature, much like audio-levelling, will be “unlocked” with the new firmware update that is evidently forthcoming. In the past, certain Windows Phone functions like the Wi-Fi Hotspot feature only became available after a firmware update was installed.
Since this is a fairly major new feature, we’re going to bet that display + touch merely unlocks the UI for the “Lumia Color Profile” but it is the forthcoming firmware that will actually enable this feature.
The only thing we need to know now is when are we getting the 1308 firmware update?
