Upcoming update will improve Lumia 920 picture quality (w/pics)
The "Portico" update for Windows Phone 8 has been in the works for a while, and is planned to be pushed out to devices very soon. T-Mobile has said the update will come to the HTC 8X tomorrow, and Nokia has promised it for some time this month. Now, we're finding out that the version of the update for the Lumia 920 will bring improvements to the picture quality.

The new "floating lens" Carl Zeiss camera has been one of the major selling points for the Lumia 920, and while the low-light pictures have been far far better than anything that we've seen on a smartphone, the daytime photos and video had been somewhat disappointing. But, it looks like the Portico update is going to fix that and bring some impressive improvements to the camera picture quality. 

The guys over at WPCentral got their hands on the update, and did a little test using a tripod and two different Lumia 920s, one with the update and one without. The improvements are quite noticeable. Take a look:
