It’s been just over a week now since we first heard that the Windows Phone 8.1 SDK was about to go out to developers, and ever since then there’s been a veritable flood of new 8.1 information leaking out. We’ve tried to keep you up to date with some of the most interesting developments, but considering the sheer amount of info that’s been arriving and all the slightly more timely stories concerning products for next week’s Mobile World Congress, it’s been a struggle to hit everything. Nevertheless, one WP8.1 tidbit caught our eye today, with some extracted icons telling the tale of a number of new features, including some of the capabilities Cortana will have.

We see icons dealing with stock updates, weather alerts, traffic advisories, and more. While most of this reflects the sort of features that we’d take for granted from a voice assistant, seeing these icons all here like this helps make the eagerly-awaited system seem that much more real.

Beyond Cortana, there’s imagery corresponding to support for dual-SIM handsets – and sure enough, some of this matches what we saw in a leaked Lumia 630 screenshot. It looks like some sort of HD audio support is planned, but for now the icon is keeping its secrets to itself. Some new Wallet functionality looks confirmed, and camera abilities look ready to extend into a continuous shooting mode.
