Nokia's Lumia Black update brings new apps and features to older Lumia devices

The update includes folders, Bluetooth LE support, and Nokia's Glance screen 2.0

In an effort to prove that it hasn't forgotten about Dre--er, about its loyal user base, Nokia announced that it's officially rolling out the anticipated Lumia Black update for its line of Windows Phones. The update will begin with the Lumia 1020 and Lumia 925, and then roll out to other Lumia models later on.

Black comes chock full of features like app folders, compatibility for Bluetooth LE, and Nokia's Glance screen 2.0, which constantly displays low-energy notifications on screen so you can check to see what's happening without even having to unlock your phone.

Nokia has also bundled up its new suite of camera apps, including Nokia Refocus, Nokia Storyteller, and the revamped Nokia Camera that combines the Nokia Pro Camera and Smart Camera in one. Lumia 1020 users will also have raw DNG support, which should prove extremely helpful for serious camera phone photographers and Instagram fanatics (especially now that it exists!).

The software update will begin deployment in China first, with the US and all others soon to follow. You can check out the status of the roll out for your phone with this handy update page from Nokia.
