Next build of Windows Phone 8.1 gets tested on benchmark site
The next build of Windows Phone 8.1 is already being tested. On benchmarking site WPBench, somebody has put up build number 8.10.14130 for Windows Phone 8.1. The OS build for the GDR3 version of Windows Phone 8.1 is 8.0.10532. The developer preview version of Windows Phone 8.1 is 8.10.12397.

The update, scheduled to take place as early as next month, will bring double height live tiles. Another new feature will be the inclusion of native folders.

The latest build for Windows Phone 8.1 was added to WPBench a bit over four days ago. The site shows that one person has tested the 8.10.14130 build on the site. According to mobile ad network AdDuplex, as of the end of last month, 7.7% of  active Windows Phone handsets were using Windows Phone 8.1. The update is available to those who have registered with Microsoft as a Windows Phone developer, or those who have purchased the Nokia Lumia 630 or Nokia Lumia 635. The eagerly anticipated Windows Phone 8.1 update comes pre-installed on those two models.
