The rollout starts first with the Lumia 920 and Lumia 820 in selected countries. As usual, exact delivery timings will vary by region, phone and operator. We checked the update availability for the Philippines and so far most are still waiting for approval.

However, Nokia expects the update to reach your Lumia 520, Lumia 620, Lumia 720, Lumia 820 or Lumia 920 by the end of September.

    may mali po ata sa details “The Nokia Lumia Amber update brings improvements, bug-fixes, and new features like the Nokia Smart Camera, Nokia Pro Camera (Lumia 920, 925)”

    except nokia pro camera…hindi pa po sya kasama sa release…base sa Windowscental at nokiaconversation …magiging available lang ang nokia pro camera after the release of lumia 1020 :D

    What if i set US in country settings, do i still get an update? I read that if your date and time settings is wrong, you will never get an aupdate.

    I got the update on my 920 this morning… all the improvements included.. the Nokia pro camera app becomes available on the windows app after the update and it’s a great camera app.

    And I thought unlocked and unbranded models are getting the update first. Don’t get why it’s taking too long when it doesn’t have to pass through carriers.

    It’s already August 19 and no updates yet. :(

    I’m using a SMART Buddy Sim though. Are postpaid plans a priority on this Amber update?
