Verizon launches Lumia Denim on Lumia 822, Lumia 928 and Lumia Icon

Lumia 928 denim update

Verizon customers who own a Windows Phone device are in for a treat. The largest carrier in the U.S. is reportedly rolling out the Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 with Lumia Denim to the Windows Phone 8 devices on its network.

The Lumia 822 and the Lumia 928 will be first in line to receive the latest version of Windows Phone and customers should start receiving the update over the next few days. This means the above mentioned handsets will be skipping Lumia Cyan in favor of the newer update. The newer Lumia Icon will get the upgrade in early 2015.

The update will be sent out in stages, so you may not receive it immediately. You can manually check for the update availability by Settings > Phone update > Check for updates on your device.

The update will bring several new features and improvements to the Windows Phone platform, along with some exclusive enhancements for Lumia devices. Among the new features is one that allows you to activate virtual personal assistant Cortana by saying, "Hey Cortana." This feature requires a phone powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 800 or higher CPU.

Lumia smartphones will also benefit from the updated Lumia Camera pp, which helps the camera boot up faster than before. It also allows you to snap a series of pictures with just a fraction of a second between shots. Additionally select models will allow you to perform Moment Captures, where you can record video in 4K and capture HD photos from the video.

The update also allows you to add either Bing Weather or Bing Health and Fitness data to the Glance screen.

The following video from Microsoft will give you a brief tour through some of the new featuring of Lumia Denim, and will give you an overview on how to  get the update on your supported Lumia device as soon as it's available.
