Windows Phone 8 GDR3 (alleged) feature list leaked

Windows Phone 8 GDR3 (alleged) feature list leakedSome new information on the new features which will be available with Windows Phone GDR3 has been leaked out, and it gives us some insight on what we can expect from the next big version of Windows.

The GDR3 update will be introduced alongside a new lineup of Windows Phone 8 devices sometime in September and with the GDR2 update just around the corner, we see Microsoft is strongly focused on Windows Phone. With Nokia presumably having plans to launch a new large screen device later this year, the pressure is on Microsoft to ready their software to match the needs of their partners.

Let's take a look at some of the feature which can be expected on Windows Phone 8 GDR3
  • Orientation Lock 
  • Driver Mode, will turn on automatically when you connect it via Bluetooth. Can reject phone calls / sms and send auto reply back 
  • Ability to have 3 medium sized tiles in a row 1080p / new SoCs, which we knew for quite some time now

Other features that are currently being tested and are likely to be pushed to GDR3:
  • Ability to actually close the apps via multi tasking [80% chance]
  • Silent NFC (meaning no more constant confirmations for pairing something) [60% chance]
