Amber update brings stereo recording to Nokia Lumia 920
Besides the always-on clock and tap-to-unlock wake up capabilities that the Amber update will bring to the Nokia Lumia 920, the update will also allow the handset to record audio in stereo. A YouTube subscriber who apparently installed a leaked version of the update, uploaded a couple of videos showing off this feature. To hear the difference between the mono and stereo sound, you might want to use a headset.

Once the GDR2/Amber update is installed on your Nokia Lumia 920, you will need to install the Nokia Pro Cam app. The phone sports three high amplitude audio capture microphones and only one of them has been active for recording until now. One has been used for noise cancelling.

To compare the mono and stereo record abilities on the Nokia Lumia 920, you will need to listen to both YouTube videos below. The first one was recorded in mono with stereo used on the second clip. The stereo recording feature could end up activated on all Nokia Lumia 92x models.
