According to a post over at Nokia Conversations, the Amber update is starting to roll out for Nokia Lumia phones. To quote from the blog, Lumia Amber builds upon the latest update for Windows Phone 8 from Microsoft. In itself, this provides a number of significant additions: a new FM radio player and improvements to Xbox music and the Internet Explorer browser.
The update brings significantly improved algorithms that offer better noise reduction, colour reproduction, exposure control and autofocus to every phone across the Lumia range. On the Lumia 920, controls to adjust the ISO settings of the camera from 800 to 3200 allow for even better low light performance.
Amber will also bring Nokia Smart Camera to other Lumia smartphones. Debuted on the Nokia Lumia 925, this new camera app is ideal for taking pictures involving people and movement. Starting today, you will be able to get the app from the Store after downloading Lumia Amber to your phone.
Even more important: On top of the Lumia Amber update, the newly announced Nokia Pro Camera will be available for the Lumia 920, Lumia 925, and Lumia 928 starting today.
Update: So if you already own the Nokia Lumia 925, you can download Nokia Pro Cam immediately!
I have no idea when your country will be part of the roll-out, and it looks like you might need the usual patience: the rollout starts now first for the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 in selected countries as well as the Lumia 521, Lumia 810, and Lumia 928 in the US. Exact delivery timings will vary by region, phone and operator, but we expect the update to reach your Lumia 520, Lumia 620, Lumia 720, Lumia 820 or Lumia 920 by the end of September.
Update 2: If you live in Europe, here’s an interesting update calendar! :-)
