According to Taiwanese site ePrice, the Lumia Amber update (includes Windows Phone 8 GDR 2 update) will be rolling out first to the Nokia Lumia 920 smartphone towards the end of August or early in September. The Amber update is pre-installed on more current Lumia devices such as the Lumia 925 smartphone and the Lumia 1020, Nokia’s camera-centric Windows Phone 8 handset.
However, G4Games, notes, “As some of you might know, yesterday Nokia announced that on August 16th, the first Amber enabled Lumia (the Nokia Lumia 925) will be introduced to the Taiwanese market. When asked about the Nokia Amber update for the other Lumia smartphone’s, Nokia Taiwan’s PR company has responded that the rollout will begin in late August / early September. The bad news if you don’t own the Nokia Lumia 920, is that the aforementioned device will be given top priority which probably translates to “if you own any other Lumia model, you’ll have to wait a little bit longer“.
“We don’t know if the aforementioned late August / early September window is valid for a worldwide release or only for the Taiwanese market, but even if the exact dates won’t coincide, the timeframe should be roughly the same.”
