We did talk about the Nokia Amber update at the end of last week, where it was spotted to run on the higher end Lumia 920, but it seems that the Amber update has more surprises up its sleeve compared to your regular street magician who pulls bunnies out of their hats. In fact, over the weekend, there was a leaked slide that depicted additional improvements being made to Nokia’s impending Amber update so that Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity is supported with some of the devices that will receive that update. There was a slide that claimed three handsets from the Lumia family – the Nokia Lumia 720, Lumia 620 and Lumia 520 will be on the receiving end of Bluetooth 4.0 drivers where the Amber update is concerned, in addition to other features such as FM radio support.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8227 processor that runs within the chassis of the mentioned devices will carry the relevant connectivity for Bluetooth 4.0, but it sure seems as though both Nokia and Microsoft have taken their own sweet time to develop the drivers for this particular low-energy technology which is necessary for full support.
