A hands-on video of Windows 10 for phones build 12544 has been leaked and reveals many updated core apps and customization. Apps include Store (Beta), must improved Office and OneNote apps, Lumia Camera 5.5 and a new build of Spartan Browser. It also shows features like increased numbers of Accent colors and option to adjust the transparency of background image.
Just few days ago, Windows 10 for phones build 10051 was released to Windows Insiders which brought updated Outlook mail, calender and Project Spartan. Now yet another build, claimed to be 10070, has surfaced thanks to a leaked screenshot posted on Polish site WindowsMania.pl. This shows an updated Start screen; the distance between live tiles has been reduced significantly and option to pin four middle sized tiles in a row has also been introduced. The latter feature will be quite handy for small tablets (less than 8″) running Windows 10.
That’s not all. A live tile of “Word Preview” can also be seen in the image. Note that Microsoft will be releasing the new Office apps (probably in preview) for Windows 10 for phones sometime during this month. A small change in “Settings” tile can also be observed.
WindowsMania.pl reports that the screenshot is from a Samsung Ativ S running the build and that it’s very buggy. This raises the speculation that the next Windows build for phones may finally reach to non-Lumia Windows Phones as well.
