Exclusive Windows Phone 8.1 screenshot shows Notification Center, onscreen keys


windows-phone-8.1-screenshot Microsoft Windows Phone 8.1 update will be adding a notification center to the device like we can see in Android and iOS, according to a leaked screenshot of the smartphone.

Windows Phone 8.1 updating days are not far away and the new Notification Center, which is almost similar to what we have recently seen from a Chinese screenshot, will be filling the gap in Microsoft’s faster growing mobile operating system.

The leaked screenshot unveils many features to our bare eyes, such as the new introduction of on-screen back, home and search buttons at the bottom of the screen. It’s not clear that whether the devices with physical buttons will show the on-screen buttons or not. But the last rumor of on-screen keys suggested that the software will understand the device hardware to show or not show the on-screen buttons.

The Windows Phone 8.1 update will also bring separate volume controls – one for system notifications and another for media and applications. It’s still unclear, whether the call volume control will be added to it or not. Meanwhile, I am getting three different volume controls in my CyanogenMod 10.2 (Android 4.3.1) installed Samsung Galaxy S3.

The notification center will also show some other buttons such as sound, mute, media playing and settings. This means the not so user-friendly operating system is transforming into an user-friendly mobile OS. If the leaked photo is real, then the WP 8.1 update will attract many Android and iOS users to their platform, including me! What is your opinion on this?
