Microsoft released their latest Windows Phone 8.1 operating system at the Build 2014 conference, and is expected to hit the existing devices in the coming months.
Earlier, it was revealed the operating system will get two GDR updates this year, GDR1 and GDR 2, which will be released in the second half of the year. According to a new report, the new Windows Phone 8.1 GDR2 Update will bring support for 2K resolutions for Windows Phone handsets.
This is definitely a good news for Windows Phone fans out there, but don’t just get too excited as GDR2 update for Windows Phone 8.1 is still a few months away, and even if it gets support for 2K resolution, there’s a probability that we may not see the handset carrying the new display before late 2014 or even 2015.
It’s not just the 2K resolution, the new Windows Phone 8.1 will also bring support for the latest Snapdragon 805 chipset, which will launch in the coming weeks. In case you can’t recall, the GDR3 update last year for WP8 also brought support for 1080p displays, so there’s a pretty decent chance that we might see 2K resolutions for WP8.1 as well.
