Microsoft promised that the Lumia Denim update will soon be released for a wider share of Windows Phone 8.1 devices and markets this month once partner testing has been completed.
Until then the Lumia Denim update will continue to arrive in waves for devices – currently we have reports saying Lumia 930 owners are receiving the firmware update in the Middle East *Oman, Qatar, UAE), parts of Asia (Hong Kong and Taiwan) and Latin America (Columbia, Mexico, El Salvador and Costa Rica) as well as Europe (Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Norway and Denmark).
Many WP8.1 Lumia devices have already received the Lumia Denim update in Europe and India, China while the Lumia 822, Lumia 928 and Lumia Icon (internationally known as 930) have gotten the update on Verizon in the US.
The Lumia 830, Lumia 930, Lumia 1520 and Lumia Icon will receive the new Lumia Camera 5 with the new firmware.
Lumia Denim will improve virtual voice assistant Cortana with natural voice scenarios, snooze for reminders and with car integration, “Hey Cortana” will be added as a wake-up phrase, users will get Live Folders on the homescreen, updated Glance Screen, improvements to Internet Explorer and the option to add a Consumer VPN. The Lumia Denim update is compatible with these devices – Lumia 520, 520T, 521, 525, 526, 530, 530 Dual SIM, 535, 535 Dual SIM, 620, 625, 630, 630 Dual SIM, 635, 636, 638, 720, 720T, 730 Dual SIM, 735, 810, 820, 822, 830, 920, 920T, 925, 925T, 928, 930, Icon, 1020, 1320 and 1520.
