Latest Nokia Lumia 800 update triples battery life: Report

Nokia's Windows Phone-based Lumia 800 smartphone was launched amid much fanfare in December last year. The Nokia smartphone, however, was highly criticised over for its poor battery life. Back in January, the company released an update to fix the battery but it turned out to be paltry. Nokia is now reportedly rolling out another upgrade to its flagship Windows Phone device to boost up its battery life. According to reports, the latest upgrade goes on to triple the battery life of the Nokia Lumia 800.

WPCentral reports that the update with version number of 12070, which is presently being rolled out in Singapore, boosts battery performance three times. Also, the phone has been tweaked to consume 70mA of power during idle time. The latest upgrade also brings refined screen brightness controls, and improved white balance in the camera app. The update also rectifies an issue related to the audio bass of the device. According to other reports, users on xda-developers have also found references to new camera features, including a panorama mode and a self timer. However, these features aren't available everywhere.

The update, presently, is limited to the Lumia 800s in Singapore, and there's no word on when Nokia plans to roll out this update in other markets. Traditionally, Nokia posts any major updates or announcements on its Nokia Conversations blog. Nokia has not yet mentioned anything about a 12070 update.

Nokia recently slashed price of its Lumia 800 by Rs. 6,000. The Nokia Lumia 800 was initially priced at Rs. 29,999. The device is now available for Rs. 24,000 at online shopping stores such as Flipkart.
