The owners of Lumia Icon have been waiting for a long time for the Denim update. Lumia Icon - one of the most capable and appreciated Windows-based devices out there, will receive its Denim update in February.
After Operating Systems Group Corporate Vice President at Microsoft, Joe Belfiore, promised that Denim would be available around early 2015, users had grown impatient. Now, at the end of the first month of the year, Belfiore finally has an update on the news. In a brief post on Twitter, Belfiore explained what he meant by "early 2015", Tech Radar reported.
To learn that the Denim update will finally be available in February, the owners of Lumia Icon feel relieved. Belfiore stressed on January and February for the update's roll-out timeframe. Since January has already passed, our bet is Denim will arrive sometime in February.
Lumia icon people asking what I meant by "early 2015": The first part of the year. In my mind that means jan/feb or so. Less likely March.

Despite positive feedback, Lumia Icon is only available via Verizon in the United States. It comes equipped with a 5-inch Full HD display with 441ppi. It is powered by a 2.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB RAM, Adreno 330 GPU, 32GB internal space and a 2,420mAh battery. It has an impressive camera with 20 megapixels on the rear with dual-LED flash that is accompanied by a 2MP sensor on the front. There's a dedicated camera button and it also has optical image stabilization for noiseless pictures and videos.
Nokia Lumia Icon boasts a metal chassis with soft polycarbonate back to give it a premium look as well as feel.
Relying on Belfiore's word on the Denim roll-out, we can expect to see the slew of changes coming to Lumia Icon sometime in February. Denim update is very important as it brings Cortana and other gizmos like live folders, enhanced SMS forwarding, Glance Screen and camera tweaks.
