Windows Phone 8.1 GDR2 could soon be sent out to those subscribed to Preview for Developers
Last September, it appeared that the Windows Phone 8.1 GDR2 update was going to start rolling out on October 8th to those subscribed to Preview for Developers. But that turned out to be one of those rumors that never comes true. Now, it looks as though the next Windows Phone 8.1 General Distribution Release is ready to be distributed to manufacturers.
Windows Phone 8.1 GDR2 has been spotted in OEM official documentation. That means it is at the RTM (Release to Manufacturing) stage. At this point, we could see it sent out to those subscribed to Preview for Developers. Eventually, once the Lumia Denim firmware update is complete, GDR2 could be released to non-developer owners of a Windows Phone 8.1 model.
Some of the new features that the update will bring include video over LTE, an anti-theft feature and support for new languages like Bangla (Bangladesh), Khmer, Kiswahili and Lao. Since Microsoft has said that it would add an anti-theft feature in the middle of this year, that gives us a good idea when to expect this update to start rolling out to all Windows Phone 8.1 handsets.
