Owners of the Windows Phone 8-powered Nokia Lumia 920 on the U.S. carrier AT&T are in for some good news. The smartphone is now receiving the 1308 firmware update over the air (OTA).
The update is a maintenance fix and brings several enhancements and tweaks to the Lumia 920. Nokia pushed out this firmware update after receiving feedback from field testing.
Last week, the 1308 firmware update was spotted on the Navifirm system for the AT&T variant of the Lumia 920 (RM-820 NDT America ATT, suggesting that the release was on the anvil. The firmware was marked as 1232.5957.1308.1, which is the same as the one released today.
Nokia took to its Twitter account to confirm the rolling out of the firmware update.
"Lumia 920 SW Update 1232.5957.1308.0001 NOW available," tweets Nokia Care US.
The software update brings a storage fix option, the ability to change the color intensity of the display, performance and stability improvements, especially to the 8.7-megapixel camera which touts Carl Zeiss optics.
"Update improves proximity sensor parameters, improved automatic display brightness adjustment & performance improvements," notes Nokia Care US.
The storage check feature, per WPCentral, lets a user "visually graph the allocation of storage space on their device." Moreover, users also have the option of dumping the temporary memory of the Lumia 920 with a simple tap of the "Clear" button. This means users will gain a few GBs of space.
Nokia has not disclosed much with regard to the changelog of the firmware, especially for AT&T. It is currently not known when the update will make its way to other Lumia 920 owners who are on other carriers or own unlocked handsets.
