The Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 are in line for a software update while the company also has something planned for the Lumia 620. There isn’t any information when users of these smartphones can expect the new version pushed out to them, but it should add a bit more stability and fix a few things.
In addition to improvements in performance, the Lumia 920 and 820 will receive a package which makes sure the display will be more stable during a call. There are also enhancements to the way in which the display automatically adjusts its brightness. Besides, there are better stability options in general.
On the other hand, users of the Lumia 620 will be treated to an update that will deliver better picture quality when using the camera. This improved functionality will include more accurate exposure settings such as when the flash is used in conditions where there is ample amount of light. The upgrade will also enhance how the touch screen responds to input and include a few changes for better system stability.
In a post on the official Nokia Developer blog, Fred Patton writes that this latest software will come with all new Windows Phone 8 devices mentioned here. Those who have purchased and are currently using the smartphones will get it a little later, although an exact release date hasn’t been officially revealed. And as usual, users can wait for their handsets to pick up the new software version when it becomes available or they can check for it manually.
The 920 and 820 were released in November last year and brought with them some premium features such as wireless charging and NFC technology. Each also comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, making them quick. The 620 is a much lower-end device and has the appeal of attractive changeable back covers.
As we’ve touch upon already, no time frame for a release of the software updates for the Nokia Lumia 920, 820 and 620 has been given as it stands. The OTA upgrade generally takes about 15 to 30 minutes to complete and should preferably be done using a Wi-Fi connection, as the package can be several megabytes in size. The phone cannot be used during the installation and may restart a few times during the process.
