The much expected Microsoft Lumia Denim software update has now finally reached Canadian shores as per new reports which state that the software update is live for Lumia 830 smartphone users within the country.

According to a report published in Windows Central, that quotes multiple user inputs, Lumia Denim is currently rolling out to owners of Lumia 830 across Canada.

According to the Windows central report, Lumia 830 users who have subscribed to Rogers and Bell Mobility wireless carriers across Canadian shores can check their handsets for new OTA notifications.

Lumia 830 users should also notice Lumia Denim update bearing version number 8.10.14234.375.

However, Microsoft's official Lumia Denim update page does not list the availability of Denim for Lumia 830 users in Canada.

As for the new functionality set that Lumia Denim offers, users can check out the new Lumia Camera feature which is a Lumia 830-specific enhancement that is not applicable to other Lumias.

Lumia Denim is available automatically to Lumia 830 smartphones, via OTA, but a manual search can be initiated by navigating to Settings > Phone updates > Check for updates.
