Nokia is rolling-out a software update to the international variants of Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 smartphones. This update is said to be bringing improved Wi-Fi and messaging to these Windows Phone 8 smartphones.
The update, which is code-named “Portico,” is being released to International markets almost a month after it was made available to US consumers. However, the update is coming almost a fortnight before the previously mentioned timeline by Nokia, which said at the time of US roll-out that unlocked units will get Portico update in early-February.
The update is being released over-the-air and should reach your unlocked Lumia 920 and 820 smartphones in the coming days.
“A Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 software update providing performance enhancements for the Nokia Lumia 820 and Nokia Lumia 920 has started rolling out over the air. Delivery will continue in a phased manner over the coming weeks and is expected to be complete by mid-March. You will receive a notification on your phone when the update is available for you to download,” Nokia stated in a forum post.
Along with Wi-Fi and messaging improvements, the update also improves the camera to fix the blurry daylight images. Among other changes, we have the new “Always On” feature in Wi-Fi settings, ability to reject calls with SMS.
HTC 8X with Windows Phone 8 was the first WP smartphone to get this update in Early December, but the camera improvements were only present in the Nokia device updates.
