Yes, it’s Lumia Emerald & we told this on September 6. When you can expect Lumia Emerald roll-out

f19bbb2f0708283888ee6c6ebb99a9014e08f1ca So, screenshots of Lumia Emerald, the next firmware to Lumia Denim, which will come out with Windows Phone 8.1 GDR2 ( still to roll out to dev preview devices) are doing rounds. Well, not to take anything away from those who reported it first, I actually told this to one of our regulars “Ritwick” on September 6.

Then, why I didn’t post it? On request of one of our sources and we can’t land our friends in trouble!

Lumia EmeraldAnyways, while Windows Phone 8.1 update 2 aka GDR2 will roll out to dev preview devices in October, Lumia Denim should roll out in early November. Now, to the question of when one can hope to get Lumia Emerald, it may well be January-February 2015, when Windows 10 preview for Windows Phone (to dev preview devices) and Lumia Emerald (to regular Lumia devices) may both roll out.

Just keep one thing in mind, Lumia Emerald may or may not be the final name of the GDR2 Lumia Firmware. As usually Lumia firmwares have codenames to show. You may remember, us exclusively reporting about Lumia Bittersweet Shimmer, which later arrived as Lumia Black.

Thanks to everyone, who reminded me of my tweet and sent that screenshot.

  • So, the Lumia Denim should roll out in early November for all users in general? and the first update for Windows Phone 8.1 is already on for users in general? for example, on my Lumia 925 the live folders new feature is still not working… live folders will be on Lumia 925 via the update 1, right?

    • Kamal

      Yup, Live Folders feature comes with update 1.

      Update 1 is only available for dev preview devices and for lumia 930, Lumia 830, Lumia 735, Lumia 730, ATiv S yet.

      It will roll out to everyone else with Lumia Denim package. Hope, I am clear.
