The Nokia Lumia 620 Windows Phone handset finally gets the latest Lumia Black update as the Finnish smartphone manufacturer rolls it out worldwide. Nokia has been rolling out the Lumia Black update since early January to the other Lumia handset running on the Windows Phone 8 like the Nokia Lumia 720.
WMPoweruser previously reported about the Lumia Black update being available for the Nokia Lumia 620 smartphone in Finland and Netherlands but the Web site now confirms the new update is rolling out as well to other countries.
The Nokia Lumia 620 smartphone owners who want to download the Lumia Black update will have to wait for the notification on their device. Another way is to head to "Settings" then "Phone Updates" and choose the "Check for Update" option. Expect the Lumia Black update notifications to pop up on the Nokia Lumia 620 handsets soon.
The Lumia Black update will be offering a variety of enhancements on the Windows Phone handset. With the Windows Phone GDR3 updates, the Lumia Black update offers support for the Bluetooth 4.0 LE, a rotation lock, App Folder and the capability to close apps from the apps switcher menu.
According to the GSMArena report, the Lumia Black update will also bring the Nokia Storyteller, Drive mode and the new app called Nokia Camera. The Nokia Glance screen 2.0 will have two new colours for the night mode feature with the Glance notifications available.
However, the 512MB of RAM in the Nokia Lumia 620 will not allow the smartphone users to experience the Nokia Refocus and Nokia Beamer offered by the Lumia Black update since the two can work for handsets having 1GB of RAM.
The Nokia Lumia 620 Windows Phone handset features and specs include the 3.8-inch ClearBlack LCD screen display with 800x480p resolution, the power of a 1GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, Adreno 305 GPU, 512MB of RAM, Windows Phone 8 OS and 1300mAh battery.
The handset is equipped as well with a 5MP camera, a VGA secondary camera and 8GB of internal storage capacity that can be expanded up to 64GB with the microSD card slot available. The colour choices for the Nokia Lumia 620 smartphone are black, white, lime green, purple, orange, magenta, cyan and yellow.
