Nokia Lumia 610, 710, And 900 Getting Post-8773 Update

Current Windows Phone 7.5 Mango devices have started getting Tango update a few days ago. But now it turns out Nokia has missed some improvements and didn’t include them into the aforementioned update, because according to the Nokia Connects blog, 8779 OS update is now out for three Nokia Lumia devices.

As you know Tango update comes with 8773 build number. So if the Lumia 610, 710 and 900 that get 8779 update, it will mean they will run another version of Microsoft’s OS. On the whole, earlier we heard several users claiming there is a mysterious 8779 update pushed out to the Lumia 710 and 800. But now when things get some official confirmation, we can say for sure the Lumia 800 is not in the list.

The source has posted some info referring to the update, but you must take it with a grain of salt, because later it became known the latest firmware looks to be 12221 and not 12201 and some of those 710 new features came out with the 8773 update.

  • Lumia 900 version 2175.2101.8779.12201: Enhanced sensitivity for proximity sensor performance and improvement to your phone’s screen colours in low light conditions
  • Lumia 710 version 1600.3031.8779.12180: Internet sharing (Wi-Fi Hotspot) — Share your phone’s internet connection over Wi-Fi with up to five other devices or computers and Flip to silence — Silence incoming calls by turning your phone face down.
  • Lumia 610 version 1066.0000.8779.12201: Enhanced sensitivity for proximity sensor performance and improved sound level for alarm tone during voice calls.

As nothing is known for sure, we’ll keep our eyes wide open and in case of seeing something we’ll share it with you.
