With the Lumia Denim update, Cortana gets a host of new features, chief among which is the “Hey Cortana” hot word that can fire up Microsoft’s virtual digital assistant without having to touch your phone. The “Hey Cortana” hot word is quite similar to the “Ok Google” hot word that wakes up certain Android smartphones.

Lumia Camera

As the name suggests, the Lumia Camera is set to replace Nokia Camera, and brings in a host of improvements. For one, the company has focused on speed — so you can essentially tap and hold camera shutter, while your phone is asleep, and according to the company, the camera will fire up and take a picture in less than 1.5 seconds.

When the camera is active, long pressing the camera shutter button will switch to video recording and start shooting a video in 4K resolution. The camera app also lets you select particular frames from the 4K video and save it as a still photo.

Other features include live images, wherein the camera captures a few moments before the actual scene and you can see the image in the gallery with a one second animation leading to the picture. There is also Rich Capture, which includes Auto HDR and Dynamic Flash. The former is quite self-explanatory, the latter, on the other hand, click a photo and then adjust the strength of the flash after the photo has been clicked.

The Lumia Denim update will be shipped with the Lumia 830, Lumia 730 and the Lumia 735 smartphones. It will then be released with the Lumia 930 and Lumia 1520 in Q4 this year.
