Although it will probably not be released until the fourth quarter of the year, Microsoft’s next Windows Phone iteration – known as Windows Phone 8 Apollo – will be previewed later this month.
The Redmond-based company has sent out invitations for an event which promises to provide “a sneak peek at the future of Windows Phone.” The event will take place on June 20, in San Francisco, and it’s certainly going to be about Apollo.
Nokia, Samsung, HTC and Huawei – among others – are expected to introduce WP 8 Apollo devices later this year. Apollo should bring many new features and enhancements, including support for multi-core processors, support for various resolutions (it’s time for Windows Phone to go beyond WVGA, isn’t it?), deep Skype integration, and camera improvements.
