I know I promised I was going to talk about Windows Phone 8 until Microsoft or Nokia make official announcements (which probably will be next week on June 20th at the Dev Summit in San Francisco, CA) regarding the OS.

But I got some screenshots from an anonymous source who goes by the name DarkRiver (lol, you gotta love that name) which claims to be from a windows phone 8 device running via RDA.

 

First off, he says this is the integrated skype on WP8  and how it looks, this is a much awaited feature and we will definitely see it on the next major upgrade to windows phone, from the images you have the option to answer a Skype call with or without video, you can also initiate Skype chat from the user’s profile, pretty awesome!

 

 

Nokia already confirmed we will see the PureView technology on new Windows Phone 8 Nokia devices, as you know Nokia will be given more leeway than other OEMs to tweak the WP8 OS, I cannot confirm if this is what the new camera UI will look like, as it looks really simple, unless most of the settings are not in plain view. tapping the 3dots should unleash a whole new set of functions you can tweak.

It just shows a vertical bar which looks like its the zoom in/zoom out setting, the 3dots button, the upper button for switching between the main camera and the front facing camera, the other button I cannot quite make out what it is..

 

 

Based on the next screenshot, an interesting feature coming to windows phone is the ability to monitor data usage natively, I don’t think this is possible on current windows phones, it is however available on Symbian devices, but this screenshots shows that the new windows phone 8 will be able to monitor your data usage, the first bar shows how much data you have left, the second shows how many days remaining on your data plan, and it seems you can even adjust your data plan based (see more data plan) on the data report (pie chart %) from the in-built app. There’s even a live tile for instant access. awesome!

 

 

 

Lastly, here is the UI of the Nokia Drive 3.0, as you already know this will come with updated traffic report and re-routing, though this is not really a windows phone 8 feature as it will be updated to current windows phone, anytime now?… OK we’ll wait!

 

 

I CANNOT confirm if these are 100% legit or if they are fan-made, but I guess we will find out next week… Hopefully!

I’ll most looking forward to the integrated Skype and the new camera UI (especially what it would look like on PureView Lumia phones)

  19. Skype integrerat i Windows Phone Apollo…

    Det verkar som om Skype kommer att integreras i Windows Phone i och med version 8, också kallad för Apollo. Rykten om detta har cirkulerat tidigare, men det har inte varit bestämt. Det är det inte nu heller, men nya rykten gör det mer troligare. Sajten…

  30. PureView branded phone with WP its probably coming this year, but the full featured PureView PRO from the 808 … that might take a while. 

  31. […] Apparently Skype is included in the Windows 8 Phone when it comes from the factory, including the ability to make a Skype call directly from your contact list. The pictures also show the new camera app. In addition, apparently, is a native app that displays the amount of data used together with the remaining period until the next reset of the counter by the provider. There is also a picture that shows the Nokia Drive 3.0 app, which is also available for current Windows Phones. Source: NokiaInnovation […]

  32. I’m also thinking these are fake. “Ireland” is right, nothing is done to the homescreen. Not that I hate the WP7 homescreen, but Microsoft has a made a really big fuss about how WP8 was going to be this huge, revolutionary OS re-write instead of some minor update. So much so that people didn’t even think their current phones could get the upgrade. This Skype/camera/data stuff looks like something that would’ve come with Mango… Using WIndows 8’s kernel, I expect more of a Windows 8 look than Windows Phone 7 look.
