Nokia Lumia Amber Update Starts Rolling in Some Models

The new Windows GDR2 update and Nokia Amber update is starting to roll out on all Nokia Lumia Phones. It will start from high-end models in USA and later on Lumia 520, Lumia 620 and Lumia 720. Update will first reach the T-Mobile branded Nokia Lumia phones and then Verizon and other phones. If you are living outside of US, you probably have to wait longer for the update.

Update will improve low light photography on Lumia 920 by adding more ISO to adjust the light from 800 to 3200. You will be able to install Nokia’s Smart Camera app that will allow users to use some cool features like Best Shot, Action Shot and Motion Focus. Action shot option allows you capture action sequence. Motion focus allows you capture the moving objects and add a little blur to them. Best shot allows you to shoot series of picture to select. It is similar to Smart Shoot app that we’ve seen on Nokia Lumia 720.

Most Lumia models will also get Glance screen, which shows a clock on locked screen excluding Lumia 520 and Lumia 625 models. There will be a new feature; you can silence your ringing phone by flipping it over. You will get updated Here Maps and Data Sense. There will be FM Radio application on all the Lumia phones expect the Nokia Lumia 620.

Nokia Lumia 925 and Lumia 1020 pre-loaded with GDR2 and Amber update. It is expected that lag issues on mid-range Lumia’s might be fixed with this new update.
