Screenshots of Windows 10 Mobile Build 10149 leak: Edge, Flashlight button, and more

We heard just yesterday from Gabe Aul, General Manager for the Operating Systems Group at Microsoft, that both the candidates for mobile and PC variants of the Windows 10 preview are looking "promising". We now have a better idea of what the next Windows 10 Mobile build may look like with a series of leaked screenshots from Build 10149.

These screenshots show a number of different changes and improvements throughout. One of the big changes in particular is to Microsoft's new browser, Project Spartan, has finally gotten its rebranding along with the Edge logo. Along with this change in Build 10149 we find the address bar in Edge has moved its home to the bottom side of the screen. This suggestion/complaint has been one of the most popular, gathering over 1000 collective votes on the feedback app.

Not only has the address bar moved but it has also gained some extra functionality. Besides being merged with the ellipsis menu, it has gained a button where you can quickly access your tabs. Like Windows Phone 8.1, you will mostly likely be able to change this to the functionality of your liking. The other buttons, 'Hub' and 'Share' are still available under the ellipsiss menu.

There are several minor changes as well:

  • Messaging app icon has changed, removed 'smiley' face (apps menu only)
  • UI of the "quick select" menu on the "All Apps" screen has changed to be more consistent with the rest of the OS
  • There is now Flashlight, Cellular, Note, and Battery Saver buttons in the "Quick Actions" menu
  • Text changes in the 'Volume' menu
  • More app specific options in Battery Saver
  • Voicemail has moved to the bottom bar in the Phone app
  • Ability to have draft texts in the Messaging app
  • The new build is reportedly also much more stable and fluid than the current one

As you can see, there are quite a few changes in this build and we will probably see things on the mobile side begin to pick up even more as Microsoft shifts its focus with the release date of Windows 10 for PC quickly approaching. Windows Insiders got Windows 10 Mobile build 10136 just over ten days ago, but the next build, whatever number it might be, is gearing up to be a pretty exciting one. You can check out all the leaked screenshots in the gallery bellow.
