The Nokia Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 Windows Phone 8 smartphones in the U.S. and Canada are receiving an update today that provides some important fixes to their software, including improvements to the image quality of photos captured in sunlight. Some users previously complained that the Lumia 920 had a tendency to take images that were too fuzzy when taken during the day, but the update tweaks the camera software to improve clarity in daytime photos.
The Lumia 820 also received an update today. Both the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 have been updated to have more reliable Bluetooth connections, end the random restart bugs that affected some users, add longer battery life, and "enhance" the messaging app.
Nokia has made the update available so far only for Lumia owners in North America. Customers with a Lumia 920 or 820 on either AT&T or Rogers can apply the update by first connecting to Wi-Fi and then going to Settings > Phone Update > Check for Updates. Once the update is applied, the phone will restart and users can then navigate to Settings > About to see that their Software Version changes to 1232.5951.1249.0001. Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 owners in Europe and other parts of the world will not receive the update until early February 2013.source: Nokia
