Nokia Lumia 620 Black update finally gets underway in select markets

The Nokia Lumia 620 is finally receiving the Lumia Black firmware update. The release has been rolling out to Windows Phones in supported regions for almost two months now, but Lumia 620 owners have had to wait in line. Thankfully, the wait is now over in certain markets, enabling consumers to enjoy features included in the update.

We've received reports from readers that update notifications have been received, but we must urge patience as Lumia Black propagates through servers and whatnot. With Lumia Black installed, consumers are able to enjoy new features like Bluetooth 4.0 LE support and improved Glance screen functionality. Be sure to check Nokia's support website for when you can expect to see the update pushed out in your region. We can't imagine it being long before Nokia opens up the floodgates.

If you're wanting to manually check to see if you can upgrade, head into settings and check for updates. Once rocking the latest firmware, be sure to hop on over to the Lumia 620 forums. Let us know in the comments if you receive the update and where you're located.

Thanks to everyone who tipped us!
