Images from Windows 10 for Phones leak, including Settings page

Images from Windows 10 for Phones leak, including Settings page
From China comes an image that reportedly shows the new Start Screen for Windows 10 for Phone, including a background image and group tile headers. In this example, the headers spell out "start" and "office," respectively. Another image supposedly shows off the Settings page for the next version of Microsoft's mobile OS.

There is some question about the authenticity of the picture, especially since the Xbox tile is supposed to be translucent. A look at the image shows that the tile is about as solid as can be. Still, if this is legit, the translation of the Settings page indicates that users will be able to make changes to the cellular radio to save battery life.

Microsoft is holding an event on January 21st at which time it is expected to unveil Windows 10 for Phones. The event will take place in Redmond, and of course you can find out all about the announcement right here.

The new pictures on the post, don't really even come close to the pictures in your link.. If I had the options, I would go with a Win 10 that looks like they do in your pictures.

Looks messy because it's chinese. And this is not confirmed officially. So just a rumour. Chill :)

Let's not look at his comment that way. What he probly meant is that Chinese texts can appear messy to some non-Chinese readers, and that one is quite true.

No but he could have talk about the font not the fact that its chines,

I was talking about fonts. Isn't it obvious? Not just chinese ; anything that's not English and my native language is messy to me :/

If it was "obvious" then he wouldn't have seen it that way. Like he said, why not say the font is messy then, (its easy to be a jerk?)

I think its obvious because there are only 3 photos with Chinese fonts. Now lets stop the statement l argument.

You should have said "in Chinese" to specify that you were talking about the language and not the country.

I hereby apologise everyone for sounding racist. I meant ' Chinese font ' in my original post.

DogeShibe... I often find people have very little to do with their lives. Thank-you for clarifying what you said. The Politically Correct Grammer Patrol can now move on to making sure other obvious references are punished.

I didn't see that as racist. I knew exactly what he meant. My wife is Asian and I find some of the foods disgusting. Hell, some Chinese eat scorpions as a snack. That's one of the most disgusting foods you could eat because certain types are highly dangerous. To me a scopion is a scorpion. That does not make me racist against Chinese.

hey fanboy1974 normal chinese people don't eat scorpion and snack ok why you know chinese eat scorpion and snack ? hahahahahahaha

Actually its a good looking simple UI that a 90y grandma can use unlike the Android UI/settings. The issue with WP8 was never its UI or lack of features but its mediocre app store and idiotic/moronic marketing of MS.

I have found the fact that both Android and iOS use grid lay-outs is as dull as you get. The use of Transparent tiles added a much needed dose of personality to the homescreen of WP. I will take my action tiles over swiping through dull grids of homescreens anyday. Of course, I also can't stand onions. Even the smell makes me cringe. Other people can't imagine cooking without them. I will just happily wait on the new live tile. The grids are all yours.
