Nokia Lumia 800 Update Arriving To Fix Volume Bug

When Nokia released its 12070 update for the Lumia 800, it was attempting to fix a few outstanding bugs in its Windows Phone smartphone. The update addressed power management issues, fixed some phone lock-ups, and was supposed to improve audio performance. It seems that in tackling that last one, though, Nokia ended up introducing some brand new glitches, and users noticed erratic volume behavior. Not content to let those bugs stand unchecked, there’s now a new Lumia 800 update starting to go out, bringing the phone up to firmware 12072.

The primary component of 12072 is code that fixes the problems brought-on by 12070, but that’s not the complete extent of this release. The new update reportedly also makes some changes to the phone’s camera app, now automatically detecting 50Hz or 60Hz flickering from electronic lights when using flicker reduction, as well introduces some improved power management behavior with better charger recognition.

This update is supposedly already on its way to users, but just who’s getting it first, we can’t say; Nokia’s software availability page still refers to 12070 as the most recent release. A CAB of the update is available for download if you’re impatient, which you may want to look into installing early if those audio problems have especially been getting on your nerves. Instructions and a download are available through the source link below.
