Microsoft confirms Windows Phone 8 update due in July


Microsoft Windows Phone official blog mentions about the Windows Phone 8 update that brings support for FM Radio and make Data Sense feature available to more mobile.

Microsoft has formally promised to deliver the Windows Phone 8 update sometime in coming few months. This update will bring couple of few features and several under the hood improvements. The official Windows Phone blog mentioned about the arrival of the update later this summer but does not specify the exact date or week.

The new Windows Phone 8 update has been codenamed as Amber and scheduled to start rolling out in July. This Windows Phone 8 update will bring the Nokia Smart Camera feature to the other Windows Phone devices. The Smart Camera app allows the use to take ten images in a go and then automatically picks the best version out of those ten.

Nokia Smart Camera app also integrates the Scalado Technology's technique to add motion blur and other effects to the pictures. There is also Action Shot that basically combines the different sequence shots of the movement captured into a one single photo showing the different position of the subject through the movement.

Apart from that, the WP8 update will also bring support of the FM Radios and the Data Sense feature that allows the user to keep track of the data usage. With this update, the Windows Phone 8 based devices will be able to sync data with Google services by supporting the new CalDAV and CardDAV protocols. The update will also bring several under the hood improvements and fixes throughout the system.

The Windows Phone 8 update does not look like a major update but certainly worth waiting for the Smart Camera app.
