Nokia Lumia Black software update arrives

February 2, 2014

Nokia Middle East has announced the rollout of the new Lumia Black software update for Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 owners in the region. The Lumia Black update combines a host of new features, improvements in imaging, new apps and app updates from Microsoft and Nokia to make the Lumia smartphone experience even better.

The App Folder makes the Lumia experience even more fluid by giving users an option to fur­ ther personalise and organise their 'Start' screen. With these folders, users can group similar

apps and settings into one folder, a tile, on their 'Start' screen.

The Nokia Glance screen 2.0 helps users keep track of informa­ tion in real time, making all their important notifications including phone, messages, email, outlook, calendar, or any apps that use notifications such as Twitter, Facebook, Whatsapp, or games always visible at a glance on their screen. It will save them time and energy.

Bluetooth LE will now be enabled across the full Windows Phone 8 Lumia range for compati­

ble gadgets like the Adidas MiCoach smart run watch acces­ sories, while the Nokia Refocus is now available to all Windows Phone 8 Lumia smartphones with 1GB of RAM and upwards.

Sharing content from a Lumia phone will be easier with Nokia Beamer. No longer restricted to just photos, users can now beam documents, presenta­tions and anything they like to any HTML5­enabled screen by simply scanning a QR code on the screen. This feature will be available to all phones with a RAM of upwards of 1GB.

The Nokia Camera combines Nokia Pro Camera and Smart Camera to simplify the photo­tak­ ing experience and ensure users get the perfect shot every time.

The latest Nokia Camera update also brings raw DNG sup­ port for Lumia 1020 owners ­ something that's already available for Lumia 1520.

The 'Lumia Black' update has begun rolling out now for Lumia 1020 and Lumia 925 smart­ phones, with other models in the range following shortly after in the coming weeks.
