Hot on the heels of the firmware update for the Nokia 5800, the Finnish giant has also released a firmware update for its smaller sibling, the 5530.
The new firmware (v40) brings a new swipe to unlock lock screen, along with a new version of the browser. The new version of the browser is same as the one found in Symbian Anna powered phones, which brings with it some major performance improvements.
Other notable improvements include louder music playback volume, and overall speed and stability improvements. The overall free RAM after a fresh bootup has also increased considerably.
Nokia 5530 owners can update their handset either via OTA (Over-The-Air) or by using Nokia Software Updater/Ovi Suite. Since the 5530 features UDP (User Data Preservation), users don’t need to make a backup of their data before proceeding with the firmware update.
Since Nokia is rolling out the firmware update in stages, users need to be patient before the update is available in their region of the world.
Kudos to Nokia for still releasing firmware updates for nearly 2 year old handsets, which improve their performance and add new features.
