Last we Nokia shared that the Lumia Black update had begun the process of rolling out to various handsets around the globe. The Nokia Lumia 925 and Lumia 1020 were the first devices to receive it, with other devices getting the update in the coming weeks. A support page was set up where you could check the status of the rollout against your country and carrier. We’re not receiving tips that various unlocked (and locked) Lumia 820’s and 920’s are now getting Lumia Black.
Lumia Black, as you should know by now, is a firmware update for Nokia handsets. It brings new features to the mix like Nokia Glance Screen 2.0 and support for Bluetooth LE. It’s also required to run some new and updated Nokia apps like Refocus, Beamer, Storyteller and Camera.
The tips we’re receiving suggest that Lumia 920’s that are unlocked in India are among the places getting the update. In Italy, users are also reportedly receiving the Lumia Black firmware update on their Lumia 820 and Lumia 920 devices. If you go to the Nokia Support page you’ll see that some of these regions are still listed as “coming soon”, which means that page is probably a little behind the curve. If you see your carrier and region listed as coming soon, you might be getting that update today.
Abby just checked his Lumia 920 and does indeed have the Lumia Black update available to him in India, his Lumia 920 is unlocked.
Have a Lumia 820 or Lumia 920? You might want to go into your phone settings and scroll down to the “phone update” section and check if you have an update waiting. If you find Lumia Black, be sure to list your phone, carrier, and country below in the comments. Don’t forget to check out Nokia’s software update page to check the status on your situation.
Good luck and welcome to Lumia Black.
Thanks for the tips everyone!
