The newest update, known as version 12070 to firmware fans, has been available to testers for a while, who've reported huge leaps in battery performance, thanks to Nokia's engineers managing to reduce power consumption when the phone's idle and adjusting the display's brightness options.

Some camera and audio bugs have also been fixed. The update is now rolling out to Lumia 800 users in Singapore, so ought to hit any UK users some point in the near future. [WPCentral]
