ATT and Nokia today released the Nokia Lumia Black software update that offers some really cool new features including support for RAW files! Here are the details:
This morning, Nokia announced several major enhancements to the Nokia Lumia 1020 experience along with the availability of its much-anticipated Lumia Black update rolling out to ATT Lumia 1020 users in the U.S. Key features of the update include:
-Enhanced Glance Screen: the Lumia Glance Screen will now display all important notifications - new emails, missed calls, text messages and more - even when the screen is dark. Icons will now appear beneath the digital clock, which is currently offered as a feature of the Glance Screen.
-Bluetooth Low Energy support: Bluetooth Low Energy (BTLE) allows consumers to easily sync accessories such as heart rate monitors with their Nokia Lumia to create differentiated experiences with apps like Adidas miCoach.
-Lock Screen Options: now, Lumia users can opt for either portrait or landscape mode to accommodate even greater customization and personalization.
In addition to new features introduced through the Lumia Black update, several experiences currently available exclusively on Nokia's Lumia 1520 and 2520 devices will now be available on other Lumia smartphones. These include:
-Nokia Camera: Nokia Smart Camera and Nokia Pro Camera combine into one easy-to-use app. This new app makes it possible to simply point and shoot, adjust your photos, or create amazing motion shots and videos. Plus, Nokia Camera now features DNG support for Lumia 1020 so photos can be saved as lossless RAW files (in "DNG" format), allowing for flexibility when editing the images.
-Nokia Storyteller: Nokia Storyteller serves as the hub for your Lumia imaging experiences by collecting and organizing your images as stories based on the image time, date and/or location, enabling you to show and tell a more comprehensive story about an event or place.
-Nokia Beamer: share experiences and ideas easily and instantly with friends or colleagues by projecting your phone screen to any HTML5 enabled screen; this includes documents, maps, location details, or even the camera viewfinder
The update will start rolling out to other Nokia Lumia owners around the world in early 2014 as planned.
