Nokia Lumia 830 and Nokia Lumia 930 will soon receive Lumia Denim update?
According to a report published on Sunday, the Nokia Lumia 830, Nokia Lumia 930 and the Nokia Lumia 1520 are the first three models expected to receive the Lumia Denim update, depending on the region. The update also contains version 5.0 of the Lumia Camera application. This will bring the ability to shoot videos in 4K, Auto HDR and Moment Capture.

Not all of the phones being updated will be able to run such features. The Lumia 830, for example, won't be able to film in 4K. While it can do Moment Capture, it only does so with lower 2MP images. The feature allows users of certain Lumia models to long press on the camera button, which starts 4K recording at 24 frames per second. Each frame can be saved as an 8.3MP photograph.

While the Lumia Denim update was originally rumored to start rolling out in the fourth quarter, the latest buzz has the update being disseminated starting this month, and taking two months to complete. Besides the Lumia Denim firmware changes, the Lumia handsets will also receive Windows Phone 8.1 update 1. Among some of the features being added is the ability to wake up Cortana by saying, "Hey Cortana." It also adds Bing Weather and Bing Health and Fitness data to the Glance Screen. The camera will be faster between shots, and low-light image processing will be improved.

I highly doubt SD400 in 830 is capable of handling 4k videos! Other than that, great!

If you had bothered to read the article in its entirety, you would already know the answer to that with 100% certainty.

I know that alright!I read the article. Hence i said 'other than that'. Looks like you took it other way round :/

Doesn't make sense; the article specifies that the 830 won't get 4k video, so you can't "doubt that" in the context of said article, and there is no "other", since there was no issue to begin with...

ManusImperceptus is right. The article already stated that 830 can't handle 4K. Why would have to doubt it if you had already read that part of the article? Don't try to cover up your screw up now. What you just said made no sense.

I doubted that's the reason they didn't put 4k in L830. FYI i read that hours before on WMPU.

Everyone makes mistakes and others at times misinterprets what said. Its all good no one perfect but the fact that it has the argued feature included is a win for everyone.

Yay! Now we just need Cortana (or certain associated functions) available worldwide...

You'll probably be able to manually update. Just like I'm running 5.1 right now on my icon and Verizon still hasn't released it yet. Smh

A lumia update isn't the same as a generic dev update.

generic? No. What you are actually meaning to say, IS, that a Lumia Firmware update (for lumia phones only). Is not the same as a Windows update. Basically think of it as AMD driver update, and well Windows update.

830 and 730 come with Demin out of the box. L 930/Icon and 1520 will get the update.

Since I updated my Nokia lumia 1520 RM-937 and RM-938 ( 2 handsets) from windows 8 to 8.1 , everything faster but camera shutter got slower , I tried Nokia camera , Lumia camera classic , camera app that comes with phone , Fast camera app and Blink app , the pictures came out blur , not sharp like before . I hope this Lumia Denim update will fix this .

I doubt, my Lumia 830 with SD400 will be able to get the "Hey, Cortana" feature. Is that possible with this update ???
