Windows 10 Phones Leak

New screenshots of an unreleased Windows 10 for Phones build have leaked online, showing off a new task switcher and other notable improvements.

The images, shared by, show not only the new task switcher, which appears to display active apps in groups of four, but other changes like new streamlined selection menus. By streamlined I mean they no longer take up the entire screen as is the case with Windows Phone 8.1.

An interesting screenshot is of the "Choose an App" selection screen, which shows the OS assigning additional storage a drive letter (as one would expect on their desktop/laptop). This likely could be a pointer to support for external storage.

As well as visual changes in the leaked screenshots, the unreleased build also seems to be taking some of the editing functionality of Word and adding said features to apps like email. From alternating between different headers to implementing a table style, Microsoft is clearly looking to bring across formatting features from Windows to the phone.

In the company's bid to bridge the gap between the desktop OS and Windows-based Phones, it makes perfect sense for Microsoft to go down such a route.
