Update for Windows Phone 8.1 GDR1 on the way?


Currently Microsoft is in a good update mood, not only regarding Windows but also Windows Phone is getting good updates in short periods. Windows Phone 8.1 was not even released for all devices and though there was already another Update on the way, generally known as GDR 1 (General Distributive Release) or simply Update 1.

Current version: 8.10.14147.180

Well seems Microsoft is not getting tired with updating an keeps working hard to make their Smartphone OS even better, a new Version of the GDR 1 Update has been spotted at WPBench, unfortunately it is pretty sure that this will not be the GDR 2 Update because there is only a small jump in the build number. Currently if you are rocking the Windows Phone Developer Preview you should either have 8.10.14141.167 or 8.10.14147.180 as your build Versions, as you can see also on my screenshot, which I have made on my Nokia Lumia 1020 with Windows Phone 8.1 / Lumia Cyan GDR 1.

The new Version which has been spotted is 8.10.14152.0, so not a big deal but since there has already been a device released with Windows Phone 8.1 GDR 1 from HiSense, the Nana it could either be that this is the release version for the update which the HiSense device gets released with or it’s just an update for the preview version of GDR1. You can have a look at it at the WPBench Site.
