Owners of Nokia Lumia 920, 820, and 620 handsets can expect to see a prompt on their devices in coming weeks with a fix for several potentially annoying bugs.

The Lumia 920 and 820 will get an update labelled Version 1232.5957.1308.00xx, which offers improved automatic display brightness adjustment, a fix for the screen which sometimes blanks out during a call, and other performance and stability improvements.

Nokia announced the update on its support forum earlier this week. 

"The update will be rolled out gradually over the coming weeks, so please stay patient and wait for the notification to pop up on your phone screen once your phone is eligible. The exact software version may vary between different regions," Nokia notes.

The Lumia 620 will also get a few improvements with version 1030.6407.1308.00xx. These include:

  • Improved touch screen functions, including corrections in multi-touch actions
  • Better voice quality with Bluetooth headsets that support echo/noise suppression
  • Enhanced camera performance with corrected exposure when flash is used in bright light conditions
  • Various improvements to system stability, performance, and usability

Lumia owners may also soon get a Windows Phone 8 update from Microsoft, which is tipped to include FM Radio support. An exact date is not know for that release, but it is expected to come before the arrival of Windows Phone Blue.

  • Actually, I got the update this AM on my 920

    The version I see is 1314, as I already had 1308.

  • Can't Play .wav from my email is more important.

    When the fix is comming for me to hear my voice mail comming to my email format .wav, we get an error sorry can't play this file on your phone. For me this was more inportant than the others small fixes. Nokia needs to set new priorities about correcting this problems that is imprtant for business, How they expect me to carry a phone that needs this important tools. this is the reason why some people don't commit to Windows.

    • Interesting

      I get .wav files from my office voice mail, and they play fine on my 820. Are yours in an unusual format?

    • Same here

      This is a nagging issue that is getting no acknowledgement from MS at this point. We use a ShoreTel system in which the codec cannot be changed. This IS hampering enterprise adoption for many if the forums on the topic are any indication. Silly because this seems like such an easy problem to fix.

    Frequent updating is the reason why I love Nokia. They are working hard and not forgetting their customers after sale.
