Lumia 1020

Microsoft has confirmed that it has started rolling out the Lumia Denim software update to the Lumia 1020 and the Lumia 925 smartphones in select European markets. This news comes as O2 in the UK have confirmed their versions of both phones will receive the OTA update to Denim later tonight.

As usual, this rollout will take days or even weeks to complete, thanks to the different update schedules of wireless carriers around the world. For example, the Lumia 1020 is an exclusive in the US for AT&T and so far there's no word on when Denim will be launched for that device. We will, of course, post the word when the update is available for the AT&T Lumia 1020.

Details of the update were provided by Microsoft for both phones.

Latest software release for Nokia Lumia 925 is Lumia Denim (3051.50009.1451.10xx/8.10.14226.359)
