Previously we observed problems with the resolved detail in the still photos, smudged areas and oversaturated colors. The photos taken with Lumia 920 running a beta version of the update are now much crispier, with more resolved detail and improved contrast. According to Engadget who got hold of the photos the white balance still needs some tuning, but the overall image quality is miles ahead after the update.
Here are some crops from photos taken with two different Lumia 920 units - the left one running on retail 1.0 and the right one on the upcoming 1.1 update.

The update will also bring system stability and browser performance improvements, as well as Microsoft in-house features such as rejecting calls via SMS.
The update is expected to launch before the end of the year, so the Lumia 920 users might be getting a pretty nice Christmas present.
