News, as previously announced Microsoft, are related primarily to the photographic aspect; in fact, these improvements of Lumia Denim only will be available for those terminals with best cameras of the family: Nokia Lumia 1520, Nokia Lumia Icon, Nokia Lumia 830 and Nokia Lumia 930.
The innovation that brings Lumia Denim are 4K video recording, improved Auto HDR mode, Dynamic flash and overall improvements in image processing. Also, the camera application (renamed Lumia Camera) now starts and captures pictures much faster than before, something that Nokia Lumia handsets such as the 1520 highly needed.
