Microsoft hopes to complete Lumia Denim rollout by the end of this month

Nokia Lumia 520Microsoft India sent out a couple of interesting tweets today regarding the Lumia Denim update. Firstly, the company confirmed that Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 with Lumia Denim was rolling out to the Nokia Lumia 520 in India. In another tweet, Microsoft stated that it hopes to complete rolling out the  Denim update for all Lumia handsets by the end of this month.

Unfortunately its not clear if Microsoft India, was only referring to pushing out the Denim update to handsets in their region, or if they are speaking on behalf of a global rollout. Previously Microsoft has stated that they hope to have completed pushing out the update by early 2015, and we have also seen signed of the second update to Windows Phone 8.1 lurking around. Hopefully we will have some clarification of this from Microsoft soon.

Lumia Denim is being pushed out to all Lumia handsets with Windows Phone 8.1, but it brings some cool new features to the Nokia Lumia 930, Nokia Lumia 1520 and Nokia Lumia 830. For example, owners of these flagship devices will will be able to use the "Hey Cortana" phrase to awaken the personal assistant from the handset's sleep state. It also adds a number of new features for the camera such as Rich Capture, a version of HDR for Microsoft.
In any case, the Lumia Denim update will have little effect on Windows Phone owners, who are undoubtedly waiting for Windows 10 for phones to arrive later this year.
