Not too long ago, Microsoft started rolling out the Lumia Denim update for a number of handsets in China, but it seems it’s not the only region. The update is rolling out for several handsets across Europe, mainly the Lumia 520, 625, 1320 and 1020 (in Germany). It’s not only Europe, reports also suggest that Lumia Denim is also rolling out for the folks in India who are in possession of a Lumia 520 and Lumia 525.
In most European regions, the update is being rolled out for the country variants, but several carriers across the continent are also rolling out the update. The list mostly contains entry-level handsets, and it makes sense to release it for them for the budget devices since they have a comparatively bigger market share compared to high-end Windows Phone devices.
The Windows Phone 8.1 with Lumia Denim brings loads of new features on board, including the ability to create folders on the Start Screen by dropping one app over the other. Furthermore, it also brings Microsoft’s digital personal assistant to some European countries, SMS merging and forwarding, and much more.
As for the Lumia Denim update, it features some Lumia-exclusive features such as improved image processing algorithms, Lumia Camera, improved Glance screen and much more.
The update is rolled out in phases so you may have to wait for some time before you can enjoy the latest features Lumia Denim has to offer. The timing of the update also depends on the carrier you’re tied to so it’s best to wait if you have a carrier-branded unit. In the meantime, you can also manually check for the update by going to Settings > Phone updates and see if its available for your handset. It shouldn’t be long before all devices get to taste the latest Lumia Denim update.
Also keep checking Microsoft’s software update page to see if the update is rolling out in your region.Further reading: Lumia, Lumia Denim, Microsoft, Windows Phone 8.1
