Nokia Lumia Black

Back at the end of December the Lumia Black update rolled out to the Nokia Lumia 1020 and we are now pleased to report that the software update is available to download across all of Nokia's Lumia range.


The Lumia Black update has landed on all of Nokia's smartphones in the UK and is also available on models locked to specific operators (but many operators are still yet to approve the update).


To ensure you get notification of the update you should check head over to "Settings > Phone Update" and check that “Tell me when updates are available for my phone” is enabled.


The smartphones benefiting from the update are the Nokia Lumia 1020, Lumia 925, Lumia 920, Lumia 820, Lumia 720, Lumia 625, Lumia 620 and the Lumia 520. And it already came pre-loaded on the Nokia Lumia 1520 and Lumia 1320 which launched late last year.


New features



After installing the Lumia Black update owners of Nokia smartphones will notice a number of new features and improvements including:

  • Glance Screen - Enhanced version of Glance Screen with notifications for missed calls, texts, instant messages and emails. As well as new night-mode colours.
  • Nokia Camera - New 3-in-1 camera application with 'Pro' mode, 'Smart' mode and a 'Video' mode. Enabling you to take stunning shots and add great effects to your photographs.
  • Nokia Storyline - The clever application creates a timeline of your photographs and overlays them on a map to combining time and place to bring events and trips to life in a single, rich picture story.
  • Nokia Beamer - All Lumia smartphones with over 1GB of RAM share their Lumia screen wirelessly with a TV or computer, or even another smartphone.
  • Other improvements - Ability to customise tones for messages and calls, ability to close apps from the multi-tasking view and the option to lock screen-rotation.
