    It will get all 8.1 features definitely. It's been confirmed by Talderon (a guy who works for MS).

    Oh and Glance is a Nokia feature, depends on your phone's hardware. LCD doesn't support it, apart from 920. Even the Lumia Icon doesn't have it.

    Glance is a feature from the ROM, not from the operating system. Black update is an update to the ROM.

    They said it was the kind of LCD they used in the 520, 521, and Icon, not the actual LCD.

    Yes, the 520 will get all of the features presently known for Windows Phone 8.1, including Cortana AND extra tile rows.

    Welcome to Windows Phone Central! As reported on the main page - yes. Every Windows Phone will get each feature in 8.1. The reason the 520, 525, 930 and Icon don't have the Glance feature is because of hardware limitation in the screen. Windows Phone 8.1, however, is software.

    So, again, take a look around these forums and the main page as there's plenty of information around, and good luck!

    99%+ of all Windows Phone 8.1 features will come to the Lumia 520.

    Hell, as of right now, the only 8.1 feature I can think of that the Lumia 520 won't get is improved NFC support, for obvious reasons.

    Seeing as this hasn't been mentioned anywhere, and the 512MB emulator has the Action Center, I'd say quite the contrary: The Lumia 520 WILL get the Action Center.

    He's partially correct, though. We're not going to get a notification center - we're getting something cooler: the action center!

    what 930 and icon does not have Glance screen ? who told ?

    They have AMOLED displays, what hardware restrictions prevent them from glance feature, it works excellent on my 1520 LCD screen, same hardware and SoC in both 930 and Icon

    Because the Lumia 930 and Lumia ICON displays lack "Display Memory," which means that Glance can't function properly. Read more here: The Nokia Lumia Icon and 930 do not have Glance, here’s why | Windows Phone Central

    Initially they might not have it due to lack of software support, I am sure both will get via software update

    they said similar story for Lumia 620 that it doesn't have super sensitive touch support etc I am hoping for the best

    Bad move by Nokia if they cant provide it via update

    Lets see, Glance feature was made because of special properties of LED displays like individual pixel turn on/off, but somehow they made this feature available on LCD panels too where such individual pixel turning on/off is not possible

    I hope Icon and 930 users will get this feature via update

    DUDE, you cant update screen firmware, screen itself doesn't have "Display Memory", which mean IT WILL NOT GET FOREVER

    If 512 ram is not sufficient for action centre, then I would say that most of the phones will,not get that feature, so any other guess?
