Lumia Black update

On Windows Phone, the updates are divided up into two types: firmware and OS. Microsoft handles the OS updates, like Update 3, while OEMs use firmware to manipulate custom settings to work with their hardware.

Lumia Black is a forthcoming firmware update from Nokia for all Lumia devices. It was previously known as 'Bittersweet shimmer' during its development.

Lumia Black is set for release in late 2013 and early 2014 and it will premier on the Lumia 1520. While an official changelog is not known, there are numerous features that have been confirmed, including:

It was two days ago that we finally saw a sign that the Lumia Black firmware update would be out soon for T-Mobile’s Lumia 521. On Nokia’s support website the status of the update went from ‘waiting for approval’ to ‘coming soon’. It still listed as coming soon on Nokia’s support page, but we’re getting a number of tips that Lumia Black has begun its over-the-air rollout for the Lumia 521.

In January Nokia stated that the Lumia Black firmware update would be available to all in the coming weeks after its initial rollout. That didn’t exactly happen, as we’re still seeing certain regions and handsets lighting up with Lumia Black. For example, just yesterday the Lumia 620 in India received the firmware update. One little handset here in the United States still doesn’t have it. That’d be the Lumia 521, a variant of the Lumia 520 exclusive to T-Mobile. We haven’t heard much about the status of the update, but we do know it’s now listed as ‘coming soon’ on Nokia’s website.

Still waiting for the Lumia Black firmware update for your Nokia Lumia 925 on T-Mobile? You’re not alone. I’ve recently switched back to the Lumia 925 as my daily and only bust out the Lumia 1020 for when I know I’ll be taking a ton of pictures. The Lumia 925 isn’t just one of the most elegant Windows Phone devices, it’s one of the most elegant smartphones period. Thankfully you and I won’t have to wait too much longer for the Lumia Black update. It should be out pretty soon.

Attention Canada: Nokia Lumia 920 owners on Rogers can expect to see the Lumia Black firmware update made available today. The Lumia Black update incorporates Windows Phone 8 Update 3 started rolling out across the globe two months ago, so Canada's largest carrier has been a bit slow on the uptake. But according to an update roadmap post in the Rogers Community Forums, 920 owners on Rogers are scheduled to start seeing Lumia Black today (three days after Samsung Ativ S users on Rogers saw GDR3)

It’s just after 1PM ET, so the flood gates are open for the Lumia Black firmware and Update 3 OS update. We just confirmed that the Nokia Lumia 822, a Verizon exclusive, is now getting that update.

To check, head into your phone’s Settings and select Phone Update > Check for Updates. Users should be on Wi-Fi to do the update, as it contains an OS and firmware update.
