Microsoft releases a brief video tour for the upcoming Lumia Denim update
Microsoft's Denim update is already reportedly rolling out for Lumia devices in select regions, namely China, and it seems that Redmond is prepping itself for a more global rollout of the newest firmware update for its Windows Phone 8.1 devices.

The Lumia Denim update was announced at the company's event at this year's IFA in September, alongside the mid-range Lumia 730 and Lumia 830. The latter will come with it out of the box, whereas the Lumia 930/Icon and the Lumia 1520 will also get eventually treated to it.

The update brings a number of interesting improvements to Cortana, Microsoft's answer to Google Now and Siri, which allow you to easily open the it by saying "Hey, Cortana!" from any screen. Folders on the start screen are also coming. It also dons a number of photography-centric improvements - first of all, you can take photos quicker than before, secondly, the update allows you to record a 4K video clip and still images simultaneously, and last, but not least, you'll be able to extract photos from an already-recorded 4K video. Your phone has to support 4K video-recording, mind you. 

Well, Microsoft obviously wants to make sure that most users will get the update in a timely fashion, that's why it just posted a brief video tour, which does not only show walks you through the new features of Lumia Denim, but also shows you how to get the update on your supported Lumia device as soon as it's available. Check it out below.
