Windows Phone 8.1 GDR2 screenshots leaked in China. Lumia 965 also leaked

We brought you the exclusive report that Microsoft is skipping GDR2 in favor of Windows 10 for Phones and while preview users will directly go to Windows 10 for Phones, the normal users may see only watered down version of Windows Phone 8.1 GDR2. Now China has got hold of some leaked screenshots of GDR2 and their sources also confirm that Microsoft may not push GDR2 anymore (at least to preview users).

GDR2 was supposed to be out in October but it was later scraped it seems and some of its tipped changes like “Mobile Data Toggle” and Cortana for more arrived with GDR1 version 8.10.14219.314. From the leaked screenshots it looks like Windows Phone 8.1 GDR2 was / is indeed the transitory update from Windows Phone 8.1 to Windows 10 for Phones. Let us have a look at the changes captured in screenshots

    Hold your horses!! It is mostly not fake and GDR2 indeed starts from 8.10.15XXX. Regarding Lumia 965. We have heard about a new naming scheme coming in future for Lumias. So, let’s see.

    • Adithya Raman

      Care to share about the new naming scheme?

      • Kamal

        Too early and we are not too sure about it. Will share if come to know anything 🙂

    • Kamal

      While I am fine with you not agreeing with a “new naming scheme” that considers 9XX for low-end (even I never confirmed that, just said, let’s see) it is for your own good that you stay humble & sane while commenting, I don’t take $$it from anyone, remember that from now on.

      There is no qualcomm or mediatek 8733 chip.

      • Kamal

        Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 (may be). MSM8733.

        • John

          The Snapdragon 410 is 8916.

  • What a fake S*** haha

  • SER

    NOKIA name in 2015? 😉

    • mystogan

      Exactly… Also Lumia 965 with WVGA? Wtf? The 9X series were always high-end. Why would it have a low-end screen? This is obviously fake. It’s not even worth reporting.

      • SER

        funny fake

      • John

        And the SoC number is 8733. Qualcomm makes no 8733 SoC.

    • Sergio Araujo

      fake i guess!
