You can expect a Windows Phone 8 refresh in the near future, but for those of you thinking it would arrive this year with iOS 7 lurking around the corner and Android 4.3 (or 5.0), but you'd be wrong.




Microsoft are planning a Windows 8.1-style revamp for Windows Phone, according to The Verge. This wouldn't arriev until next year and would reportedly include "a notification center, improved multitasking, and changes to built-in apps" as well as "a rotation lock option."


There was meant to be smaller updates to arrive, but Microsoft have reportedly decided to roll them all into one big super update.
