Nokia Lumia 920 Firmware Delivers Improved Camera Quality

Nokia is set to release a firmware update to address image issues related to photos taken with the Lumia 920 smartphone.

Engadget managed to obtain two sets of identical photos -- one taken with the current PR1.0 firmware, while another was taken with the forthcoming PR1.1 update.

The latter firmware appears to fix fuzziness issues reported by Lumia 920 owners since the Windows 8-powered smartphone's early November launch. White balance issues, however, reportedly remain even in the newer firmware.

Nokia's PR1.1 firmware is expected to launch alongside a Windows Phone 8 operating system update due sometime this month. The latter will introduce support to decline calls through SMS, as well as improvements applied to web browsing, LTE and the overall stability for Windows Phone 8 phones.

  • rebel1280Was gonna get a W8 phone but after reading reviews on the lackluster RT tablet I, think I'm going to stick with getting the S3...unfortunately, I REALLY wanted to like the 920.

    What's wrong with the tablet and why does that make you not want to buy the phone? (I'm trying to talk you into it ;) ) The 920 is an amazing phone, btw (happy owner).

    WP8 and W8 RT are not the same OSs.

  • woot!
    I'm getting my 920 today to tomorrow and it sounds like they have most of the bugs ironed out now. The new firmware fixes the camera, the wp8 'portico' updated fixes the hangs and adds a few cute features, and the nokia maps, camera, and music updates add some neat features.

    Now if only they made a white phone in the soft case instead of the hard gloss shell...
