Nokia's PR2.0 update for Lumia models brings 'always-on' clock to the screen and more?
With a firmware update said to be coming for Nokia's Windows Phone 8 Lumia models, some of the features have leaked out. The update is expected to bring an optional 'always-on' clock for the screen. Another new feature is expected to be 'double tap to awake' which is probably one of the easiest ways to awaken a sleeping handset. You might recall that the Nokia N9 offered the same awakening technique.

A new firmware update is expected to bring an always-on clock to Nokia's WP8 Lumia phones

Some other features being mentioned include a new lens option called Smart Camera that offers similar features to Smart Shoot, but will include Nokia's version of Blink. Blink takes a quick burst of shots just before you completely depress the shutter, and just after you snap a picture, allowing you to find the perfect shot.

We have no idea when this firmware update is coming, but it apparently will be another way to differentiate Nokia from the other Windows Phone manufacturers.

Atleast they are not copying. Neither calling it innovation.

They have added so much extras since its release in Nov. I never owned a Nokia phone before my 920 but it will be hard to go to another manufacture after this phone

Mecha-unstable fAndroids who simply deplore their lives for non-existent NokiAndroids which would supposedly bring such awesome Nokia innovations to that particular platform, let alone the fact that their only apparent resort is Samsung, whose support for Android is pathetic.

Wow, the amount of features Nokia released for its version of WP8 seems to be much more than what WP8 offers on its own.
It's too bad Microsoft does not seem to know what to do with the OS like how Nokia does.
Microsoft should give up the WP8 rights to Nokia. They will make the OS much much better.

Exactly. Nokia did release Nokia Drive for all, which was the right move for the platform.

'always-on' clock belongs to Symbian and MeeGo. Looking forward to seeing it on WP.
P.S. My mum has ordered Lumia 620. Can't wait! :D

Sincerely, Nokia excels in hardware and software.

Thumbing down won't make your preferred OS any better :)

Still on dualcore and using 225GPU!
Nokia excels in using outdated old Hardware and Software!

err the lumia 920 is using LCD instead of AMOLED, how is the "always on clock" going to work? all the rest of cheaper models will have it and not the flagship? wow thats kickass

For your information, Nokia's old symbian phones with LCD screen had this feature too.

I hope some of these updates trickle down to the HTC 8x. Between Nokia exclusives, and Verizion holding back updates, I am feeling left behind.

This is going to be a great feature for me.. Will not need my power button as much, only when I restart my phone.

This only shows how good meego harmattan is supposed to be. Elop is already thinking that his decision is wrong for not continuing meego harmattan and bringing some functionalities on the windows phone. Sorry nokia but no windows phone for me until you change windows phone as you're main os. Maybe meltemi will do if you revive it.

changelog
This bulletin gives information for flashing

Bulletin Content

How to identify the issue:

When phone is set to test-mode, battery capasity (state of charge SoC) is written to 0 %. Because of this, in some cases the phone will not start up or if it starts the battery capacity is displayed wrongly.

Repair instruction:

How to Work-a-round the issue:

- Battery removal or 2-finger reset (hold down power and volume down buttons until the phone vibrates) after repair actions will return the correct SoC value

- Phone will automatically get correct value 20 min after start up

- PR2.0 sw will have correction.

NOTE: Flashing the phone will not remove the issue
