Tweet from Nokia Spain says to expect Amber update in August
A tweet from Nokia Spain reveals that the Amber update for Windows Phone 8 models is coming in August. This bundles the GDR2 update coming from Microsoft with a second one. The bottom line is that the Amber update will unlock the FM tuner, bring Datasense to the handsets, and improve the Music Hub to make it easier to select and download a tune from Xbox music. There also will be improvements made to the camera along with the addition of Symbian-like features. This is already installed out of the box for those with the Nokia Lumia 925. That model is expected to be launched July 17th via T-Mobile.

Nokia has a media event scheduled for July 11th during which the Nokia EOS is expected to be revealed, although we could hear more about the Amber update at that time. Later on this year, Microsoft will release the GDR 3 update which will allow the platform to support resolution of 1080 x 1920 on the display, and will also allow new Windows Phone 8 models to be powered by quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processors.
