Windows 10 Phones Demo: USB OTG, Arduino support. 4-column start screen & other UI changes

Windows 10 prototypeThe above image is very interesting and it is taken from a official demo video (watch below) included in a Build 2015 presentation. What you can notice in the above image is,

  • A new development Phablet (that may or may not come to market).
  • USB Flash drive support (OTG). You can now extend you storage with a USB flash drive. The video says it is limited to devices with USB dual-role hardware support, like the prototype in the image above.
  • A new  Windows 10 for Phones build with UI changes: 4-column start screen and all apps before the bottom arrow (just like GDR2).
  • If you have a look at the below screenshot you can see changes in the “File explorer” with the upcoming build.
  • Arduino support via new USB capabilties

    Only new Lumia’s..?? what about Lumia 925, 1520, 930….etc

    if every hardware thing is coming to new Lumia’s…..so what do we get only cosmetic changes…and we have spent our money on high-end just to cry for the features available in very low end androids (still cant charge my lumia in my car via usb) ….shouldn’t they be adding hardware if they knew already and activating it later ……..so now we need to buy new Lumia for new hardware features….Microsoft are you up for buyback???

    very confused…???

      Yeah, I am curios about this too. Why can’t USB OTG support be brought to current devices? Nokias from 2010 and even earlier I believe, not to mention Android, support this. It is the same story with Continuum not being supported on current mobile handsets, I understand current devices can’t dual output but why not make them output just to the big screen when connected? I really want a technical explanation from some guy at Microsoft.

    Heck yeah!

    it’s a Lumia 1520, the display has a NOKIA logo!!!
    If it was a prototype it would say Microsoft…

    • Fausto

      I was WRONG!!! it has those UGLY soft buttons…!!!
      But on the android phones the USB OTG came with software only on the 4.1 version, why not windows. USB is bidirectional…
