Nokia N95 official change log v.12.0.013

July 20, 2007 by  

I just got hold on the OFFICIAL change log for the latest Nokia N95 firmware update, MCU SW v12.0.013. The guys at Symbian-freak digged this up and it seems we’re looking at some major upgrades. Some new features have been added, like the A-GPS I wrote about earlier, but also the new HSDPA (3.5G) indicator on the top left corner, as well as some improvements on the camera software and the previous sharpening bug.

  • MT video call shown correctly on UI


  • Lots of maps improvements
  • Position Method now selected correctly
  • WLAN APN removed from AGPS positioning server settings
