The brains over at the XDA Developers community forum have been playing around with a leaked Vodafone branded Lumia 800 ROM, which MobileTechWorld has been testing against bug reports and what previous software updates addressed. 1600.2487.8107.12070 is set to be the next step from the previous major firmware release (1600.2483.8106.11500) for the Lumia 800 that addressed battery and WiFi connectivity issues.
The following is a compilation of all known fixes / improvements in 12070:
- Battery drain issue has been fixed
- Lack of audio Bass when listening through headsets has been addressed
- Auto-white balance issue with the camera has been fixed
- Hardware buttons backlights are now always illuminated at all available screen brightness levels
- Diagnostics app has been updated to prevent users from receiving misleading technical readouts about their device
MobileTechWorld has noted that we should expect to see this update to be rolled out soon. We've reached out to Nokia for more details. Should you be an owner of the Lumia 800, fear not as it would appear the manufacturer is working hard to fix all user-reported problems.
