Lumia Denim update & Lumia Camera 5 ready to roll-out for some Device / Region combinations

Lumia_CameraSome good news here!!

As per the latest info from our sources Lumia Denim update and Lumia Camera 5 (version 5.0) are ready to roll-out for some specific device-region combinations. While we don’t have exact details of the devices and regions it will roll-out first, our sources speculate Lumia 830 and Lumia 930 may get it first followed by Lumia 1520.

Lumia Denim update is officially mentioned coming in Q4, but our sources have hinted at a early second half of November timeline for the start of update roll-out. Now, with the latest info, it seem the update may start rolling out any time soon. The whole update schedule stretches to 2 months, though.

The Lumia Camera 5 will be the latest version of Lumia Camera and will bring Moment capture, Dynamic flash, 4K video, Auto HDR meant for Lumia 930, Lumia 1520, Lumia Icon and Lumia 830. Lumia 830, however can’t record 4K videos but does Moment Capture in Full HD, and with reduced 2-megapixel per frame quality.

Lumia Denim update brings goodies from both Windows Phone 8.1 update 1 and Lumia Denim Firmware update in one. Read all about Lumia Denim and Windows Phone 8.1 GDR1 changes at our dedicated page.

    Surely any Lumia Camera features that work on the 830, must work on 820/920/925 ? The 830’s processor is weaker. Come on Microsoft be fair!

      yet all we can do is hope, it might not do business sense to them, so they will kindly ask us to give them more money(buy a newer phone) instead

  • No sign on 1520 CV IT (in Italy)

      It is ready to roll-out not released yet. But really should come out very soon for some device / region combos.

    If it is possible, may you help me get this:

    Last time, it has been the Bitlocker issue due to which the Cyan update could not be delivered to the developer preview phones directly.

    I believe now this has been fixed, hasn’t it?

    So for all of us with the developer preview latest update already in our phones, is it fair to presume and expect to further receive the Denim update at no pain this time, winthout having to downgrade first ?

      It is really difficult to say as even after all testing, it may wrong at times :D. But, I heard that Microsoft had delayed GDR2 for some reason and the Lumia Denim may come with the latest GDR1 version.
