According to a poster on Chinese forum, WPXAP.com, it has been tipped that Windows Phone 8 is currently being tested internally on a number of devices, some of which are already available like the Lumia 800, while others are on devices which have yet to see the light of day. The poster cites his friend who apparently works for Microsoft in the US. The poster went on to reveal that the interface (Metro UI) has remained largely untouched, but speed and touch response has been improved on.
He also reports that folders is one of the new features that will be included, improved Chinese language support, a feature called “gravity sensing”, along with an overhauled Internet Explorer. The poster went on to reveal that VPN support is currently enabled in the test version of Windows Phone 8 but reported that there is a chance it could be removed once Apollo has been released. Some of these alleged features sound pretty good, but we’re just too sure how much we can trust a forum poster making such wild claims. In any case we’ll take this with a grain of salt for now, and those of you who can read Mandarin, perhaps you might be interested at taking a read for yourselves.
