Nokia Lumia 920 running Windows Phone 8.1 shown on video

Nokia Lumia 920A video of the Nokia Lumia 920 running Windows Phone 8.1 (Blue) was recently released online, showing a number of features expected to arrive in the next version of Microsoft's mobile platform. Among them, there is a Speed Dial function that looks to be under the "History" section of the dialer. The settings for IE 11 are shown and the video makes it clear how quickly you can change the default search engine. Data Sense can be configured from the IE settings page, and a Password Manager is available for web sites.

Also seen on the video is the calendar, which will now have week and year views. And you can micromanage the battery on your Windows Phone 8.1 powered handset using Battery Sense. Similar to other power saving apps that you might have seen on Android phones, it appears that you can arrange to have certain background apps shut down when battery life remaining drops under a certain pre-determined threshold.

Storage Sense lets you switch where you want your photos and music, apps and videos stored. You can choose between your phone's internal storage and a microSD card. And Windows Phone now has its own podcast app. You can choose from a list of podcasts provided by Bing, the app supports music and video. And Project My Screen allows you to wirelessly transmit what is on your screen to a television or a monitor using USB connectivity or a wireless device.

Keep in mind that this is not the final version of the update, but the fact that the next version of Windows Phone is smoothly running on the first Windows Phone 8 device should excite anyone who is using the phone.
