Gallery: Windows Phone 8.1 screenshots reveal lots of new features

Earlier today, the floodgates opened and tons of features that are coming to Windows Phone 8.1 started to leak. What started with a thread on Reddit, has turned into a screen-shot dump of all the new settings and features that the update will bring to the platform.

With new options to manage storage, a screen projection setting, additional customization options and tons more, it looks like Windows Phone Blue will be a nice upgrade to the platform. With expectations being that the update will get officially announced at BUILD, we don’t have to wait much longer to find out if there are any other secrets hidden in the update.

We have gathered a ton of the screenshots for you and put them into the gallery below to help you gain a better understanding of the look and feel of Windows Phone 8.1.

While we haven’t seen any major visual tweaks such as new live tile sizes or replacing the black and white background behind live tiles, there are quite a few enhancements to the overall interface such as virtual navigation keys.

If you are wondering where all the screenshots are coming from, Microsoft released an SDK of the build to select developers under an NDA and like many NDAs before it, it was quickly broken (less than 24hrs after distribution).

Take a look at the gallery that is attached and we will continue to update this post as we obtain more shots of Microsoft’s next update to the Windows Phone platform.
