A week before Microsoft is set to unveil the future of Windows 10, a few images of the software running on a phone have popped up. Via user ImLever on Weibo, the images apparently show the new mobile interface of the Redmond company’s anticipated update; we see things like the ability to set an actual background image, group tile headers and the ability to change the opacity of tiles. It’s still very recognizable as Windows, but Microsoft is clearly making an effort to allow users to better personalize the experience.
Beyond what we can discern from the images that have been provided, it’s not really clear what else we can expect from Windows 10 when it becomes available for mobile devices. However, it’s clear Microsoft is making a major effort to get the look exactly right (not that we didn’t enjoy the interface of Windows Phone already).
As for the images showing the possible settings page, it’s apparently set up in a way to make navigating much easier through the use of jump lists. We have no way of confirming the authenticity of the photos at this point, but seeing as Microsoft is set to talk about the future of Windows 10 on Jan. 21, it really wouldn’t be a surprise to find out these are legit. For what it’s worth, WMPowerUser assesses these images as a “6/10” in terms of legitimacy.
