What do I get with the update?
The Lumia 920 camera gets even better with enhancements in speed and functionality.

How and when can I get it?
The update will be available in stages from the end of January. You will automatically receive a notification on your phone when the update is available for you.
Firing your phone up for the first time
When you first hit the power button, your new Lumia 920 gets busy installing all its built-in features and apps ready for you to use. As it comes packed with Nokia Maps, Nokia Music and loads more, this could take a while. But good things can’t be rushed – so please wait until this one-off installation is complete before you continue. Once it’s done, you’re ready to dive into everything the Lumia 920 has to offer. Enjoy.
Using it at home and abroad
LTE on your network and device
Your new Lumia 920 comes with LTE capability. That means it’s ready to take advantage of the highest data speeds going as 4G/LTE networks are rolled out around the world. Check if your operator supports 4G/LTE for smartphones - if they do, you’re ready to enjoy the ride with your Lumia 920.
When travelling outside of your home network, we recommend you simply switch your ‘Highest connection speed’ to 3G to avoid any issues with calls or text messages. You can change that in Settings by tapping ‘Cellular’ or ‘Mobile Network’.
If your operator doesn’t support 4G/LTE for smartphones yet, you can use 3G instead. Thanks to technologies like the Snapdragon S4 processor and Windows Phone 8 in your Lumia, you’ll still enjoy speeds so fast that some networks identify themselves as 4G. So don’t be alarmed even if your phone says it’s on a 4G network -- it’s just using the fastest available data speed.
Exploring and getting around
Get more from the neighbourhood you’re in with Nokia City Lens, our exclusive augmented reality app. It gives you an intuitive way to navigate the real world. Point the camera at a city street, look at the viewfinder and see up-to-date info on what’s around – from restaurant reviews to places of interest – overlaid onto the live image. It’s a whole new way of looking at things.
With Nokia Maps, Nokia Drive, Nokia Transport and City Lens, Nokia location services represent an amazingly comprehensive, integrated mapping experience. When you’re on the road, Nokia Drive+ navigation is the ideal travelling companion. We’re still putting the final touches to it but you can already hit the road with the first beta version. Just be sure to download the latest maps for free before you travel. Then you never have to think twice about coverage or data connectivity: Nokia Drive+ will be there for you, even if reception isn’t. Full offline support will help you save costs when travelling abroad too.
Nokia Drive+ offers voice-guided directions and speed limit warnings to make sure you dodge any tickets – and it now works even when active navigation has ended. Don’t want the alerts? Just use the back key to close the app and keep on rolling.

Shoot high quality images
Your pictures and videos are more detailed, brighter and less blurry thanks to our clever PureView camera technology. The phone features Optical Image Stabilisation to eliminate shaky images and videos, plus a Carl Zeiss lens to make sure you get the best results every time – even in low light or at night.
Lenses also gives you more ways to get great images from your Lumia 920. Take multiple shots with a single click using Nokia Smart Shoot, and make catching and editing your perfect picture a doddle. Create live pictures with Cinemagraph and really get things moving.
Here’s a top tip to help you improve the performance of your phone. Make transferring videos off it quicker by keeping your filming short (good advice for budding directors all round, really…). When you’re uploading a video, we recommend using your OneDrive to make accessing it from your laptop, PC or other devices even easier.
Wireless charging and other extras
Your phone will love a good energy boost every now and then – and you can now power up without plugging in. Simply lay your Lumia on a colourful charging plate or the new Fatboy Charging Pillow until you’re ready to go. Plate up in your kitchen, office, bedroom, or wherever – the more plates you have, the more places you can get a charge easily. Nokia Lumia 920 also supports USB and Qi compliant chargers -- just remember to always use a Nokia charger with your Lumia device for the best results.
Step your Nokia experience up a level with other handy add-ons. Listen in style with great speakers and headsets, including the Nokia Luna headset – pair it with our DT-900 wireless charging plate and boost the battery wherever’s convenient. To find out what extras could work best for you, ask your local Nokia retailer or operator.
