On Nokia’s official blog they have cleared up a couple of rumors about the Amber update and when the roll out of this update is expected for all. The question that you want answered the most is when can I expect this update on my device? According to Nokia “..Lumia Amber we expect to have the update arriving in all Lumia Windows Phone 8 phones by the end of September.” The next question is what will this update bring to my device?
The popular (and awesome) glance screen/double tap to wake feature will not come to Lumia 720, Lumia 720T, Lumia 625, Lumia 620, Lumia 521, Lumia 520, or Lumia 520T. The Pro Camera software will not be coming to devices lower than the 900 series because it’s “..a high-end imaging application that requires a lot from both hardware and software. Therefore, we have initially optimized the application for the high-end Lumia smartphones.” Also to be noted that the Lumia 620, Lumia 810 and Lumia 928 will not be get the FM Radio update because of lack of the FM radio chip.
All other features should be coming to your device unless noted above. If you want to see if you device is available for this update manually simply go to ‘Settings’ -> ‘Phone Update’. Let us know in the comments if you receive this update and your thoughts on it.
