Leakster extraordinaire, @evleaks, doesn’t need more than 140 characters to get people excited. In a recent tweet, he claims to watch out for a device codenamed Martini from Nokia. Apparently, it is another Windows Phone 8.1 device. No images have been shared and no other information has been provided.
We don’t know much about the device, but we do know some of the new features that Windows Phone 8.1 (codename Blue), may bring. Thanks to the leaked Windows Phone 8.1 SDK, we are able to get a preview. Some of the highlights include:
- Notification center – Alerts, non-Toast notifications, update history
- Quick-access to customized actions, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Plane mode, etc.
- Start screen backgrounds
- Swipe keyboard
- Swipe down to close apps in multitasking view
- Search button will be the new way to open Speech (aka ‘Cortana’)
Check out the full list of what we know so far about potential new features in Windows Phone 8.1.
Martini. What tech specs come to mind when you say that out loud?
