Good news for those with the super adorable Nokia Lumia 620 on O2 in the UK as we’re getting reports that the Lumia Amber update with the GDR2 OS is now rolling out. Likewise, two nights ago we teased that the Telus update was coming and it too is now live (Koodo is still pending approval).
Featuring the Glance screen, SMS and call filtering, camera fixes, flip to silence and more, the Amber update along with Microsoft GDR2 OS refresh should make the already fun Lumia 620 even better.
Firmware 1329 for the Lumia 620 now on Nokia's severs
So far, the Lumia 620 has seen a more limited rollout of Amber. While the update is available on Telus in Canada and evidently now in the UK on O2, whole regions like India are still waiting on it.
We can at least confirm our unlocked Hong Kong edition is now getting Amber (via Nokia Software Updater), whereas 24-hours ago it was not available. That should tell you that Nokia is constantly adding the update to their servers and various carriers and regions should be getting the update soon. Nokia has promised all Windows Phone 8 Lumias should be on Amber by the end of September.
We’ll update this post shortly with any Amber-Lumia 620 info we have as soon as our update is complete.
For now, you can commiserate or celebrate in our Lumia 620 forums: forums.wpcentral.com/nokia-lumia-620
