Windows Phone 8.1 GDR2 tipped to bring some much needed updates


Windows Phone 8.1 has already proven to bring Microsoft’s mobile operating system to the level it needed in order to compete with other platforms. The updates that were added with Windows Phone 8.1 GDR1 brought even more needed features, but it’s clear that Microsoft is not done. If you were wondering what the company has in store for GDR2, rumors have just arrived on the topic.

Reports claim that Windows Phone 8.1 GDR2 is going to bring support to 2K resolution on smartphone displays, and therefore providing support to new processors like the Snapdragon 805. Other hints claim that the update will also allow you to finally sort your settings menu alphabetically, and even search for specific points that you’d like to address, instead of having to scroll down and guess some times. The report goes as far as to mention that we should expect Cortana to be pushed to other regions as well.

If you’re wondering how far away we are from Windows Phone 8.1 GDR2, well, we’re actually not that far as apparently it should be ready to go live in the next two months. We’ll keep you posted as this data becomes official.
