Nokia Glance screen coming to (almost) all WP8 Lumias

Nokia has apparently confirmed that their Glance screen feature is coming to all Lumia Windows Phone 8 devices… all except the Lumia 520 and 521 (T-MobileUS variant). This maybe due to hardware limitations in the phone, probably regarding the screen technology, which is the price you pay for low-cost devices.

Nonetheless, it’s great to hear that the Nokia Amber update is bringing this feature to most of the devices, and it is expected to rollout later this summer.

  1. I wonder how this will affect the battery life on devices with LCD screens like the Lumia 920 and most other Lumias (afaik).
    With Symbian the same feature (Sleeping Screen) was only available on AMOLED devices, and that’s for a reason.

    • That’s true, though Nokia is probably addressing that with Amber, by releasing version specific updates to optimize Glance for each device? Who knows, guess we’ll just have to wait and see

    • From what I have heard Glance screen will only appear for a set amount of time after the screen is switched off as well as when the device is taken out of a pocket so as to minimise battery drain.
      at least that is what i am hoping, being a 920 user.
