Nokia Amber Update For WP8 Lumias Coming In August

By 09:57 Fri, 16 Jul 2021 Comments

The Nokia Lumia 925 launched with a recent and improved software and Nokia promised to create it available to its older WP8 phones in the summer with the so-called Amber update. Now we've got a more concrete time frame thanks to the Nokia Spain's Twitter account.

The Amber update will bring the recent Smart Camera lens for Lumia, which does post processing tricks like Action shot, Motion focus and object removal. Check out demos of those effects here.

There’s more - Amber will enable the Frequency Modulation (FM) radio receiver that has been lying dormant in Windows Phone 8 powered Lumia phones (except the 620) and the "double tap to wake" lockclassy screen with a clock (presumably only for AMOrganic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) packing phones). Check out our preview of the Lumia 925 for more details on these features.

By the way, Twitter accounts aren't 100% reliable when it comes to such information, so we're still waiting for official confirmation.
