Nokia announces ‘Amber’ update for Lumia smartphones, will unlock FM radio

Apart from announcing the Lumia 925 smartphone, Nokia has announced an update for its Lumia line of smartphones codenamed ‘Amber’. The update will unlock FM radio capabilities in the Lumia 920, Lumia 820, Lumia 720 and the Lumia 520.

Additionally, the update will include camera improvements and will add a double tap to wake feature. Previously, the double tap to wake feature was seen in the MeeGo powered N9 and the Asha 501, but now it looks like this feature is also coming to Nokia Windows Phones. Perhaps this is an example of Nokia benefiting from its partnership with Microsoft for Windows Phone.

Microsoft had shipped Windows Phone 8 without FM radio capabilities but Windows Phone 7 had the feature. Microsoft was intending to add the feature as a part of the GDR2 update for the OS. Nokia has said that the ‘Amber’ update will be part of the GDR2 release.
