While we don't yet officially know what Windows Phone 8.1 will feature, there have been a number of leaks that hint at what the next smartphone operating system from Microsoft will offer. We are expecting Windows Phone 8.1 to bring a revised notification center. That revised notification center surfaced in some leaked screen shots earlier this month.

This week a video has turned up that claims to show another feature of Windows Phone 8.1 in use on the video. The video is of the official bake din Microsoft swipe keyboard. If you have ever used a swipe keyboard on another device, you know how this works.

 

 

The idea is that you can slide your fingers around the screen without having to pick your finger up to select a letter or symbol. Along with the swipe keyboard, a few other nice features are also tipped to be coming.

 

Those other features include the ability to set the phone to automatically capitalize the first letter of each sentence. Another function offers the ability to predict what emoticon you need. An example is tying the word "happy" would give you the smiley face icon to choose from.
