Latest Windows Phone 8.1 Developer Preview update brings real time battery percentage tile and more
Microsoft has recently updated Windows Phone 8.1 update 1 to build number 4203.306. This version of Microsoft's mobile OS is available to those who are signed up to receive the Windows Phone Developer Preview updates. According to a report published on Sunday, the new build will make it easier for Windows Phone 8.1 users to monitor their phone's battery life in real time, and much more.

With the new build comes an improvement to the Battery Saver tile which will become a Live Tile showing the percentage of battery life remaining until the phone goes dead. You will also be able to add Battery Saver as one of the quick action settings. In India, the highest connection speed will be listed as 4G following the update. The phone's clock will show network time by default, and problems with the Russian Time Zone have been fixed. The dialer will once again include all call details, and Windows Phone updates can be scheduled.

Earlier today, we passed along the word that the Nokia Lumia 930, Nokia Lumia 830 and the Nokia Lumia 1520 phablet will be the first three models to receive the Lumia Denim update, which includes Windows Phone 8.1 update 1. The firmware update will start getting pushed out later this month, according to the latest speculation.
