Microsoft’s handset division, Nokia, today announced Lumia Denim, the next update to its Windows Phone platform for Nokia-branded hardware.

Lumia Denim’s chief improvement is making Cortana is easier to use. It introduces a “Hey, Cortana” catchphrase that can be used to launch Cortana for filing reminders and other actions.

Denim brings geofencing powers to Cortana, too, which can recognize geographic areas for assisting in reminders and tasks. Lumia Denim also makes improvements to the camera application. For example, the start-up process has been sped up so the camera launches faster. The camera is quicker to capture individual shots, as well, and adds a quick-capture mode that records 4K video with 8.7-megapixel images.

The software can then pull out individual shots from the video to make for more compelling images. Lumia Denim will first be available on the Lumia 930, 1520, and Icon, with others to follow in the fourth quarter.

The separate camera app will also be made available during the fourth quarter to just the 930, 1520, and Icon.
