If you own a Lumia device that runs Windows Phone 8.1 in China, rejoice as Microsoft China has just rolled out the Lumia Denim update. The Lumia Denim update has rolled out to the the Nokia Lumia 520, Nokia Lumia 525, Nokia Lumia 526, Nokia Lumia 625, Nokia Lumia 720, Nokia Lumia 720T, and the Nokia Lumia 1320 in China.
The update includes major changes to the Lumia Camera app. It helps the camera boot up much faster compared to its previous boot up time. Furthermore, capturing multiple shots one after another now takes less time (just a fraction of a second in between). With some models, Moment Capture allows 4K video recording and HD image capturing from videos. Last but not the least, the update allows the adding of Bing Weather or Bing Health and Fitness data to the Glance screen.
Another feature included in the update is a new way of activating Cortana. To activate her, you can now say, “Hey Cortana.” A Qualcomm Snapdragon 8xx processor is required for this to work.
The Lumia Denim update has rolled out in Chine, but what about other regions? Microsoft said, “The Lumia Denim update has started rolling out to a limited number of devices in selected markets, and will continue arriving in waves by device. A wider rollout of Lumia Denim to all Lumia smartphones running Windows Phone 8.1 is expected to begin in early January, following partner testing and approvals.”
