Nokia have now rolled out the Lumia Black update to the Lumia 520 and Lumia 720 in the UK. That means that the only Lumia smartphone still waiting for the update is the Nokia Lumia 620.


However, it shouldn't be too long before the update is made available for the smartphone. Nokia have the Lumia Black update for the 625 listed as "Waiting for approval", which means that it's "undergoing final testing with Nokia, country or operator to achieve approval."


Nokia smartphones that were updated to Lumia Black in January include the Lumia 625, 820, 920, 925 and 1020. While, the recently released Lumia 1320 and Lumia 1520 already come pre-loaded with the latest software.


You can check for the update on your Lumia smartphone by Settings>> Phone Updates>> Check for Update.



New features brought by Lumia Black include:

  • 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.
