Microsoft already testing the next build of Windows Phone 8.1

07 July, 2014

Microsoft is already working on the next build for its Windows Phone 8.1 operating system, according to the benchmarking site - WPBench.

The data from the yardstick shows us a new build number 8.10.14130 for Windows Phone 8.1 while the current OS build for the GDR3 version of WP 8.1 is 8.10.10532 and for the developer preview version of Windows Phone 8.1 is 8.10.12397.

The results from the WPBench reveal that a developer has been testing the 8.10.14130 build for the past five days. If the rumors are to be trusted, the update is scheduled to roll out as early as next month and the new firmware will come out with the inclusion of native folders along with the ability to double the height of the live tiles.

For now, the update will be available for all the registered Microsoft Windows Phone developers and for the consumers of Nokia Lumia 630 and Nokia Lumia 635.
