Lumia Denim Rolling Out to “Limited Number” of Devices, “Wider” Rollout in January

While reports have been surfacing of Lumia Denim all morning, I avoided publishing any of them until they could be confirmed with a list of changes and an official response from Microsoft.

The latter came at the same time as the former, with Microsoft announcing that the “Lumia Denim update has started rolling out to a limited number of devices in selected markets.” Microsoft says the update “will continue arriving in waves by device” though it didn’t specify exact markets or devices (other than “Lumia” of course).

Microsoft also says that 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.”

So what’s in the new update? Read on to find out!

A faster and more intuitive Lumia Camera app. The app will deliver images of the highest quality at the fastest speed, allowing you to capture multiple photos with just milliseconds between shots.

Moment Capture. This feature provides the quickest and easiest way to capture memories in high definition. A long press of the camera button automatically starts 4K-quality video recording at 24 frames per second. With each frame at 8.3 megapixels, you can save individual frames as high-quality still images. Due to hardware differences, Lumia 830 shoots Moment Capture in Full HD, not 4K, and with reduced 2-megapixel per frame quality.

Rich Capture. This simplifies picture taking with auto HDR, Dynamic Flash and Dynamic Exposure. Avoid the hassle of adjusting camera settings and focus on capturing the moment: Shoot first, edit and select the perfect shot later.

Latest imaging algorithms. Capture even crisper photos in daylight or low light, with our latest generation of imaging processing algorithms.

So if you haven’t received the update, be patient. You’ll likely get it next month. You’ll want to make sure you have Lumia Cyan installed while you wait.
