Future Windows Phone specifications announced

Microsoft has finally announced its new set of Windows Phone hardware specifications at the MIX11 conference today.

According to Mobile Tech World Microsoft engineer Istvan Cseri set out the new set of hardware specs for future Windows Phone devices during one of the conference speeches. The new specification details include news that a new Gyro sensor will be built into the hardware, although this feature will be optional and up to OEMs to decide whether they make use of it or not.

Microsoft also stated that they have been working on support for Qualcomm's brand new system-on-a-chip MSM7X30 chipset, which runs at 800MHz while running an improved Adreno 205 GPU. The company also now support Qualcomm's faster second generation MSM8X55 running at 1GHz, which also contains the much more powerful Adreno 205 GPU, which is already available on some new Android based handsets.

Microsoft has also decided to drop the specification for HVGA chassis, leaving only support for WVGA as the screen resolution.

Yesterday at MIX11, Microsoft showed off the next big software update for Windows Phone OS 7, dubbed ‘Mango”. The update will bring a number of bug fixes, features, stability improvements and overall a better user-friendly experience.
