The Nokia Lumia 520 in Canada seems to be next in line to get the much-awaited Amber update, as it will reportedly be available through various carriers soon.
Nokia is apparently making good on its promise to release the Amber update for most of its Lumia devices worldwide. After news that the Lumia 920 on EE UK was getting the new update, the GDR2/Nokia Amber update now seems all set to hit the Lumia 520 in Canada.
According to a new WPCentral report, Nokia and its carrier partners in Canada are now in the final stages of testing for releasing the GDR2/Amber update.
"Looking at Nokia's support page, we can see updates for the Lumia 520 on Chatr Wireless, Koodoo, PC Mobile, Rogers and Telus have all switched from 'Waiting for approval' to 'Coming soon'. That means last minute preparations and the updates should flow within the next 24 to 48 hours," explains the publication.
The update for the Lumia 620, meanwhile, is listed as "Waiting for approval" for Koodo and "Available" for Telus. The update is also listed as "Available" for the Lumia 920 on Telus.
Nokia's Amber update is set to bring a number of new features and enhancements, including an improved image processing, a flip to silence feature, FM radio, call and SMS blocking, Lumia color profile and Nokia Smart camera. Microsoft's general distribution 2 (GDR2), meanwhile, will fix the Other storage issue and will bring improvements to Xbox Music and other features.
