Yesterday I recieved a toast notification on my Lumia 920: Welcome to lumia denim
The extras+info page displays that i have the lumia Denim update.
But it is a long time ago I updated the device. I have developper preview, but i dont see any new features on my lumia 920 since yesterday.
Are there any new features for the Lumia 920 in the denim update?

Do I really have the update? Or is there some bug in the extras+info page?

It is a bug or if you are not on DP and now you get live tiles you have it.
If you are on DP than actual you will not get "more" on the 920 than you have on DP.

Rumor has it that older devices have no firmware update for denim, only an os update. But if you are on DP then you already have that OS update. When the Extras tool updated it now knows you have that update so says you have denim. So because you're on DP you got the benefits earlier.

That's the rumor. Before this the firmware update was typically delivered with an OS update. I guess the firmware is what it is now (on old devices) and everything is in the OS. This isn't a bad thing since the OS should be able to be updated without carrier approval.

Edit: Note that I am not saying this is true, it is just the current rumor.

True. And if you want it really see positive than you could see it as.
All possible firmware updates where already pushed out earlier. So you can already enjoy them from the Cyan update.

But the firmware isn't just a new features, it helps our Lumias to work better and smoother

That has always been the case.

It may still be the case. Personally I'd prefer they keep enhancing firmware in older phones but lets face it, at some point you get the most out of hardware and have to focus on newer hardware or hardware with more potential like the 930 and 1520. Why expend effort if there is little return?

So there wont be the new Lumia Camera app for my 920? I was hoping for an update of that app even without the speed enhancements and rich capture.

Some more info..

Note the EU update page for say Poland.


ProductLumia 1320 DescriptionPolkomtel ReleaseCyan OS version8.10.12393.890 Firmware version3058.50000.1424.0003
ProductLumia 1320 DescriptionT-Mobile ReleaseDenim OS version8.10.14219.341 Firmware version3058.50000.1424.0002

1320 with Cyan and Denim. Firmware is basically identical. Only OS changes. Kind of confirms the rumor about older devices. Not to say every device is only getting an OS update (clearly 930/1520 will get firmware), but looks like not all phones are getting a firmware update in Denim. I.e. if you are on DP, you already basically have Denim.

edit: Couldn't confirm the same pattern with 920 though as nowhere appears to be updating that yet. So maybe there is hope.

Also the FW update will enable Bluetooth P.A.N.

That is the only thing I am looking forward to. We will finally be able to use our WPs with our Toyota Entune.
