Nokia Releases the Lumia Black Update Worldwide

Lumia Black Update

Nokia has released its “Black” update for Lumia smartphones worldwide. The update brings several enhancements and nifty, little features for people using the Finn’s Windows Phones.

The first among them is the App Folder, which allows you to group several common apps of the same kind under one large Live Tile on the Start Screen. Bluetooth Low Energy is enabled for the complete Lumia range. Glance 2.0 makes an appearance, giving you an overview of even more activity straight from the lockscreen, and in more colors.

Two of Nokia’s imaging apps – Nokia Pro Camera and Smart Camera – have been placed under one banner to form the new Nokia Camera app. Access to raw image files is coming exclusively to the Lumia 1020.

Nokia Refocus is an app which allows you to snap a photograph and then refocus it later on. Storyteller is another app coming, which arranges all your photos on basis of time and location.

Finally, Nokia is adding more imaging algorithms to make your snapping feel more fruitful. For instance, a new oversampling algorithm reduces noise and makes photos sharper and more natural.

Pakistani Lumia users have already received Black Update for their Lumia 925 and Lumia 1020 devices. Rest of the devices – namely Lumia 520, 620, 625, 720, 820 smartphones – will be getting the updates in the coming few weeks.

  • Good to see they’re updating all of their smartphones yet. Would like to see the glance feature. But nothing much in the notifications domain; not good to see.

    And it’s no more the Finn’s Azeem, let it go!
