Nokia has been in reports all this while for an assorted range of reasons. While most of them have been for the newly released Nokia X which runs on Android Open Source Project, others have talked about the future of Nokia's own Lumia range of devices. However, new reports are now flowing in discussing about the prospects of the upcoming Windows Phone 8.1 update that's set to arrive soon.
According to reports, the next Nokia firmware, that will be pushed out in the recent future for all the Nokia Lumia-based devices, is set to be dubbed 'Blue for Windows Phone 8.1.'
There's now a new video posted by Nokia Russia which highlights the current features in Lumia Black. Apparently, that's the firmware that coincides with Update 3. But that's not all the video shows. Apparently, at the very end of the video, the voice over makes brief mention of the next Lumia update, and calls it by name: Nokia Blue.
As of now, Nokia is already expected to release a forthcoming firmware update for its Lumia line in the next few months. And that's not really that big a secret since we are anyway expecting an OS update called Windows Phone 8.1 - a firmware pushed out with an aim make the phone's hardware better, although being specific for each device.
"In the past, firmware like Nokia Blue has 'unlocked' some features like advances to the Glance screen, better Bluetooth support, improved camera algorithms, Motion Monitor and more," writes WPCentral in its report.
"Presumably, there could be some advanced features in the 8.1 OS update that are taken advantage of by newer chipsets found in the Lumia Icon and Lumia 1520 e.g. always-on voice recognition. Firmware would be needed there to enable those and other features."
As of now, the Blue firmware update is expected to make a presence at the upcoming Microsoft Build conference in the next couple of weeks.
