Nokia Lumia 800 battery fix released

January 19th, 2012

Nokia 800 BlueNokia has began rolling out a software update to the Lumia 800, which should fix the handset’s well-publicised battery problems.

A post over at Nokia Conversations confirms that the update, which was originally announced back in December, has began rolling-out to Lumia handsets, with an aim to reach all smartphones within the “next two weeks”.

Full details of the update are still to be confirmed, but the Finnish phone-maker has revealed that it’ll deliver enhancements to both the handset’s WiFi and battery life. Hopefully, this means it’ll fix the Lumia 800’s widespread battery issue, which sees the handset “showing lower battery capacity than expected.”

According to the Finns’ official blog post, your Nokia Lumia 800 handset will alert you when the update is available, which can then be downloaded via Microsoft Zune.

“Once you’ve received the update message, attach your phone to your computer using the USB cable,” the post explains. “In Zune, from the Applications section, go to phone settings->Phone update to install the new software. On a Mac, click on the device name in the left-hand pane and then on Install update.”

We’ve been in touch with Nokia for further information, so we’ll bring you more details as soon as we hear back.
