    Lumia Denim Update for Windows Phone 8.1

    What can you expect from the upcoming Lumia Denim Update? Besides Cortana, live folders, SMS merging and many other improvements, there are of course fantastic unique imaging enhancements, too.

    For the owners of the Lumia 830, Lumia 930, Lumia Icon, and Lumia 1520, there are a load of new imaging innovations coming, those include:

    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.

    In the gallery below, you can see all the latest innovations in action taken with a Lumia 930 and the Lumia Denim Update:

    The Lumia Denim update has started rolling out to a limited number of devices in selected markets, and will continue arriving in waves by device. 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.

    In anticipation of the Lumia Denim Update, make sure you have Lumia Cyan installed. More details on that, here.

    I got a system update the other day but it's still showing as Cyan, mind you I do have the very lowest entry level model 520. I'm surprised I get upgraded as well as I do. It's a brilliant phone and take great photos. I'm due to upgrade next May but don't know what model I'll be offered.

    Being this side the pond could make a difference to what I get as well, don't have Cortana yet though.

    Have a 520 also. Not surprised these newer updates aren't released for it but it is a nice phone. Shocked it is going for $29 right now from the MS store on a certain auction site.

    Have had Cortana for awhile now here in US.

    Have the Samsung AVTIse from Verizon and it came with Cortana, but haven't set it up as of yet hopefully before Christmas. Will have to check on Demin.

    Looks like Verizon will finally update the Icon. They will release Denim in early 2015. Don't know if I will get Cyan first as it is suppose to be required to install Denim. Maybe they will combine the updates and release it that way. Mine is still on Black. With Verizon early 2015 is anytime before Dec 31, 2015.

    I just scooped a Lumia 635 and Cortana works except for the 'Hey Cortana' voice wake feature.
    I'm also surprised how well Cortana works offline for internal commands!

My contract with AT&T was up, so I got rid of the old iPhone 3GS, which I hated and got a Nokia Lumia 920, which is a Windows 8 phone. I'm a "Windows guy", so this phone fits me perfectly. It's got a huge beautiful screen, is fast and smooth, does everything I want it to do, intuitively and it's...
