The Finnish manufacturer Nokia has announced software updates for Windows Phone 8 on Nokia Lumia 920, 820 and 620 on its support discussion forum. The updates that bring an improved camera and better touch on these devices is set to be rolled out gradually over the coming weeks and the exact software version will vary based on your region. The updates would be available Over The Air (OTA) and the users will get an update prompt.
The update version 1232.5957.1308.00xx for Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 will, besides the usual stability and performance fixes, bring improved automatic display brightness adjustment, a fix for intermittent screen blanking during a call, in addition to further performance and stability improvements.
The update version 1030.6407.1308.00xx for Nokia Lumia 620 will come with improved touch screen functions, including corrections in multi-touch actions, better voice quality with Bluetooth headsets that support echo/noise suppression, enhanced camera performance with corrected exposure when flash is used in bright light conditions and various other improvements for system stability, performance, and usability.
A few days ago reports have started coming in indicating that Microsoft will issue an update called General Distribution Release (GDR3) later this year that will bring support for 1080p resolution and quad core processors to Windows Phone 8. Similar reports have also been sighted before which indicated another update called General Distribution Release (GDR2) that will bring support for FM Radio tuner hardware.
With the depth of update such as the one released by Nokia, it will definitely take some time to bring Full HD resolution and quad core processor compatibility to Windows Phone 8. Microsoft is reportedly working on Windows Phone Blue, the successor to Windows Phone 8. It is not sure whether the current Nokia Lumia family will be compatible with it but we would sure love to see more exciting features coming on these handsets with this new version of Windows Phone, if Nokia agrees to bring it to their current line of Lumia family.
