Nokia Lumia Black is officially being pushed out according to NokConv – Surrently 1020 and 925 owners will see this update, other Lumia devices will get the update soon. Note the implementation of ‘folders’ which seems new to me unless I’ve missed something as well as:

Glance 2.0

Nokia Refous (perhaps by default) – 1GB RAM phones

Nokia Beamer – 1GB RAM

Nokia Story Teller

Nokia Camera

Latest generation of imaging algorithms. The Lumia Black update further improves the image quality, especially in Lumia 1020. Among others, the improvements include a new oversampling algorithm, making your images more natural looking with reduced noise, while ensuring your photos remain wonderfully sharp.

The Lumia Black update also brings a series of enhancements from Microsoft to Nokia Lumia smartphones. These include safe driving mode – which cuts out unnecessary distractions when you’re on the road; customised ringtones for each contact. You can now also close apps within the in multitasking view and lock the screen rotation if you wish.

“Nokia Lumia Black updates the imaging experiences on your Lumia and makes using the Windows Phone even more fluid. New App Folders and the ability to close apps in multitasker are my personal favourites. I also encourage everyone to try out the Nokia Refocus app that introduces a whole new dimension to photography,” says Samuli Hänninen, vice president of software program management for Nokia’s Smart Devices business

Cheers Alvester for the tip!
