The AT&T Nokia Lumia 1020 users can now boost their smartphones with the Nokia Lumia Black update available to download. CNET reports the new update can be manually checked on the Nokia handset's update section in the Windows Phone settings menu.
The Nokia Lumia Black update will be including all of the enhancements in the Windows Phone 8 Upate 3 as well as the latest Nokia Glance Screen software that has support for notifications and the enabled Bluetooth Low Energy feature. With the Nokia Glance Screen, users will be able to look at calendar items and message notifications without unlocking the Nokia handset.
"Microsoft's Update 3 includes rotation lock, custom tones for messages, emails, and reminders, and a new Driving Mode feature that's designed to limit notifications while you're driving. Multitasking improvements, including the ability to close apps, are also included," The Verge report reads. In early 2014, Nokia will also be adding up a new Steps feature that can measure the number of steps the owners are taking with their smartphone and show the results on the Glance screen.
The Windows Phone 8 Update 3 has only been available to developers for a couple of months but the Lumia Black's update roll out for the Nokia Lumia 1020 brings RAW camera support for the 41MP camera on the device. A couple of features found in the Nokia Lumia 1520 can also be found such as the improved Nokia Camera app with Smart Camera capabilities and the lock screen rotation controls.
The Nokia Lumia 1020 attracts consumers with the 41MP PureView camera incorporated that can capture 34MP or 38MP high-resolution images at the same time with a 5MP image that can be shared on social networking sites. The Finnish smartphone includes the Pro Camera app that allows the owners to manually adjust the camera settings like the exposure level, white balance and shutter speed in capturing videos or images.
When it comes to smartphone design, feature and specifications, the Nokia Lumia 1020 has similarities with the other Nokia Lumia range such as the Nokia Lumia 920 and Nokia Lumia 925. The Nokia handset has a 4.5-inch AMOLED screen display with 1280x768p resolution, 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB of RAM and 32GB memory storage capacity.
