One of the upcoming changes we’ve talked about more than once for Windows Phone 8 is bringing support for high resolution 1080p displays to the platform. Supposedly, this would show up later this year as part of the anticipated GDR3 update, also ushering-in the era of quad-core SoCs for Windows Phone. As we wait to catch wind of the first hardware that will take advantage of all this new support, some early evidence has arrived to confirm the coming 1080p support.
This comes in the form of support files for Microsoft’s Visual Studio 2013, which in addition to support existing WVGA, WXGA, and 720p resolutions, adds a new 1080p option.
This news follows the arrival of an image revealing new Windows 8 tablet size and resolution support. Between the two of these, it’s clear that Microsoft is putting a focus on getting a little more diversity into the sort of devices consumers can find in the lineups for its mobile platforms – well, when it comes to screen options, at least.
