Windows 10 Smartphone Features Revealed in Leaked Screenshots

Microsoft already gave us an official look at Windows 10 for phones back in Jan., but the company may have left some of its new features out. A fresh batch of leaked screenshots appear to reveal a few surprises coming to the upgraded mobile operating system.

Leaked by Chinese site ITHome and spotted by The Verge, the images reveal what appears to be a new stand-alone app for recording audio. Once you’ve made a recording you can also quickly save it to OneDrive or send it in an email. However, it doesn’t look like the app will let you record calls.

Another improvement may be coming to the keyboard, adding the ability to squeeze everything to the left or right side of the screen. This could be useful for one-handed typing, especially on bigger phablets like the Lumia 1520. The microphone button on the keyboard has also been moved to the top where it’s a bit more front and center. Finally, Microsoft appears to have updated the design of its built-in alarm clock to match Windows 10.

Microsoft is set to release the first preview of its new mobile OS later this month, and we can’t wait to get our hands on Windows 10 for phones. We’re expecting to see lots of new improvements, so today’s leak may just be scratching the surface.
