What's behind Lumia Black and how do I get it?

Lumia Black starts rolling out in January 2014. You’ll receive a notification on your Lumia guiding you to download the software, which will update your phone with some useful enhancements. And after Lumia Black is installed you can download some great Nokia imaging and sharing apps. Plus a whole lot more.

Little details, big difference

Lumia Black brings you an enhanced Glance Screen, now with notifications for missed calls, new texts and instant messages, unread emails and more. We’ve also added new night-mode colours for the Glance Screen. Other everyday enhancements powered by Windows Phone 8 include the ability to customise tones, close apps from the multi-tasking view, and lock the screen from rotating.
