Nokia Lumia 920 PR1.1 update to improve camera alongside first Windows Phone 8 OS update

One of the main advantage of choosing a Nokia handset over competing devices is peace of mind knowing that the company will rapidly try to fix and roll out updates to eradicate most of the issues reported on their devices (HTC is good at it too but not as reactive as NOK). The Nokia Lumia 920 isn’t immune to bugs and issue which means that Nokia’s software teams have been hard at work seen the commercial launch of the product a few weeks ago.

One of the most noticeable problem is the strangely configured camera processing software causing day-time shots to look like a layer of Vaseline has been applied to them. Given that this doesn’t affect videos or even shoots with the front facing camera it was safe to assume that Nokia would be able to correct this with a software update. The good news is that the Lumia’s first FW update unsurprisingly labeled PR1.1 (FW: 1232.5951.1249 ) will include, among several other fixes / improvements , a new image processing algorithm that should result in sharper photos as seen in the cropped image below which was supplied to Engadget by Nokia.

The Nokia Lumia 920 PR1.1 update will be released alongside Windows Phone 8′s first update ( 8.0.10211.204 ) which will include new feature like always-on Wifi, SMS drafts, fix for the random reboots experienced by some users (some HTC devices have already received this OTA OS update). The whole Christmas package should roll out fairly soon according to Nokia.
