Nokia Lumia Black Rolls out Globally including Philippines
The moment all Nokia Lumia users have been waiting for, the global roll-out of the latest firmware build of Nokia called Black if you’re using a Nokia Lumia you might still be in the Amber version.
Nokia Black has been announced last year in the recent Abu Dhabi Nokia Event and since then I have been eyeing on this update and finally today Nokia announced the availability of the Update worldwide.
Let’s first Rundown the features of the Nokia Black.
You can watch the video for a visual representation of the things I will mention below
First is the App Folder this new feature let’s you stack you apps in a group folder which quite works like the app drawer of Android and iOS.
Next is the Nokia Glance Screen 2.0 this is really a nifty feature on Nokia which let’s you glance your notification while you’re not yet opening the screen of your smartphone. with this one it will have sets of icons representing if you have messages,email, social media updates and many more.
Bluetooth LE it improves the Bluetooth experience on a Lumia phone it now has more compatible gadgets such as the Adidsas MiCoach Accessories.
Nokia Refocus well this feature has already been available in the past few months which lets you Shoot and Focus later.
one of my favorite is the Nokia Beamer, this helps you share content over the wifi and you are no longer restricted to just photos, you can now beam presentations, documents and anything you like (but I will still test if this will work on games). this is simply buy scanning a QR code on the screen and your good to go.
This app debuted on the new Nokia Lumia 1520 and Lumia 2520 late last year. it simply arranges your photos for you, by date and by place, so you can track how your photo stories.
Latest generation of imaging algorithms, this update further improve the image quality, especially for Lumia 1020, which will have new oversampling algorithm, making your image more stunning and less noisy.
