Leaked Lumia 925 screenshots show upcoming Windows Phone 8 Amber in action
WPDang brings us leaked screenshots showing off the upcoming Windows Phone 8 Amber on Nokia’s new Lumia 925 flagship Smartphone.
With Microsoft’s annual BUILD conference merely days away, WPDang has posted leaked images of the upcoming Windows Phone 8 Amber update running on the Nokia Lumia 925. The new features seen in the leaked screenshots will make it to all existing Nokia Lumia Smartphones, with a possibly reduced feature set hitting Windows Phone 8 handsets from other manufacturers such as Samsung, HTC, Huawei etc.
Have a look at the leaked screenshots from the Nokia Lumia 925 running on the unreleased Windows Phone 8 Amber OS:
Here are a few notable changes observed with the WP8 Amber update:
- Smart Camera (Smart Capture) Feature
- Double Lock-Screen (one showing the clock)
- Manual Display Tweaking (color temperature, saturation)
- Memory Checker
- IBM Notes Traveller Support
- Nokia HERE
- New Wallpapers

Quite neat huh? We’ve already seen something like this on the Samsung Galaxy S4, it was only a matter of time before the feature was made available to other flagship devices as well.
It’s nice to see Microsoft working on new Windows Phone 8 platform updates, however they really need to step up their game. The new Amber update brings in a slew of new features and tweaks, but is it enough to go up against iOS 7 and the upcoming Android 4.3 Jelly Bean? Perhaps not, so we’re really hoping for something good with the next Windows Phone GDR3 update (to bring 1080p display, quad-core SoC support). Until then, Nokia WP8 owners rejoice, a system update is on the way to your beloved Lumia handset.
