Lumia Denim

Microsoft has started rolling out Lumia Denim OTA update to a few Lumia handsets around different regions. While the Denim update concentrates mainly on the camera improvements, Microsoft FAQ page confirmed about a new capability that Denim OS gives to the Lumia handsets.

The latest Lumia handsets with Denim (OS 8.10.14219.341 and above) possess the ability to download OS updates directly to the microSD cards on the device.

The devices that has this support include :

Lumia 530/530 Dual SIM, 630/630 Dual SIM, 635, 636, 638, 730 Dual SIM, 735 and 830.

This feature is not applicable to other Lumia models, which are mostl the old models, even if they have a microSD card slot like Lumia 520, 525, 620, 625, 720, 820, 1320 and 1520.

This limiatation might be due to the hardware restrictions of the older Lumias.

To know the version number of OS on your Windows Phone, go to Settings -> Extras+Info.

This feature can be put in use to download any OS updates after the 8.10.14219.341 update.
