Lumia Black Update Hitting Global Lumia 1020 and Lumia 925 Today

Nokia Lumia 1020-Front

Nokia’s Lumia Black update, which adds a host of new features, is now rolling out to global models of the Lumia 1020 and the Lumia 925. The update already hit AT&T’s Lumia 1020 back in December, ahead of the global rollout.

If you’re unfamiliar with Lumia Black, which technically made its debut on the Lumia 1520, it adds the ability to create folders on your homescreen for applications, includes Glance 2.0 for alerts on your lock screen, Bluetooth LE support, Nokia Refocus for changing the focus of your imagesĀ after you’ve snapped a photo, Nokia Beamer for sharing content with other screens, such as TVs, Nokia Storyteller and Nokia Camera, which combines the features of Nokia Pro Camera and Nokia Smart Camera into one application with much more granular controls.

It also improves the camera on the Lumia 1020 to remove noise in pictures and more “natural looking.” Speaking of the Lumia 1020, Lumia Black adds RAW DMG support for photos, which is a format preferred by photographers who prefer to edit uncompressed images.

Nokia said the update is rolling out now and that it will hit other phones in the “coming weeks.” Head into your phone’s setting menus to check for the update manually.
