There are many of us still waiting for Nokia to roll out the Lumia Black update for Windows Phones around the world. If you're not yet rocking the latest firmware, you'll be receiving your update notifications soon. Just as we covered last week, Nokia is beginning the major push to supported hardware, starting with China.
We've received confirmation from Nokia that the Lumia Black firmware update has indeed started its journey to consumers. Note that the Lumia 1020 and Lumia 925 Windows Phones are receiving the upgrade (other Lumias to follow). Here's what Nokia China posted on Chinese website Weibo (translated):
"Nokia Lumia Black system upgrade coming in recently for different types of users, have to upgrade push it! I believe that many users already can not wait to learn what the system update, right? Come! Click on the picture, preview it!"
Should you require reminding as to what the update brings to Lumia Windows Phones, we've got a quick reminder for you. It's worth noting that not all included features and changes will be applied to all hardware and Chinese consumers will receive two unique features exclusive to that market.
- Glance Screen - New colours for night mode, notifications, pedometer, custom text and calendar information
- RAW camera support for both the Lumia 1020 and Lumia 1520
- New camera algorithms, notably for the Lumia 1020 with tone mapping and noise reduction
- Bluetooth 4.0 LE
We'll hopefully have an idea as to which regions are receiving the update soon. Have you updated to Lumia Black yet?
