It is no secret that Lumia Denim and Windows Phone 8.1.1 (or GDR1) is officially due for Lumia Windows Phones this month, overlapping into 2015. Still, for those in France who are also on SFR, there now appears to be an official schedule for said updates.
The SFR Denim program reveals which Lumias get the update first in December and which will carry over into January. In that sense, it is interesting to see which Lumias get first dibs on Denim. As it turns out, it looks like Microsoft is going for market share, as those Lumias that are newest and most popular appear to be the first to get the update.
- December Denim update: Lumia 520, Lumia 625, Lumia 930, Lumia 1520
- January Denim update: Lumia 530, Lumia 635, Lumia 920, Lumia 925, Lumia 1020
As in the past, such a schedule is likely to apply to other carriers and regions, giving consumers a good idea of what to expect.
Microsoft has been relatively quiet on Lumia Denim, although just this week they did reaffirm that December and January were still on track for the current release cycle.
