We’ve had a few reports come in today and a discussion in our forums about a new firmware update that is evidently being pushed out to those with a Lumia 920. To be clear, this is just a firmware update (not OS), bringing it from 1232.5951.1249.1017 to 1232.5951.1249.1018. That’s a small change and we’re confident in saying no new features will be on board.
This should also be only for those on Orange UK (EE) with carrier subsidized Lumia 920s. We are not getting reports of any other carriers, nor is this the new 1308 firmware with Storage option.
One possible explanation for the update is reportedly the 1017 ‘Portico’ had some stability problems related to “signal as well as call cut-offs and freezes” which v1018 addresses.
Thanks, Martin S. and Ranak M., for the tips
