Windows 10 for phones preview is expected to launch anytime soon, but as we reported to you a couple of days ago, Microsoft already shipped an early build to a bunch of users worldwide.
While it might seem like the rollout takes place in stages, there’s still no information regarding the release date for the rest of the users, so it’s impossible to tell when you or anyone else could receive the update in the Windows Insider app on the phone.
And yet, Twitter user @s1z33, who allegedly has already got his hands on the technical preview, has published a few screenshots with the new operating system in action, confirming that Microsoft has indeed started the rollout for some users.
As you can see for yourselves by clicking on the pictures in the photo gallery below, the new Windows 10 for phones preview comes with a completely revamped settings screen that’s inspired by the very same menu in Windows 10 Technical Preview build 9926.
This isn’t surprising though. Microsoft is working to bring its platforms closer, so a similar look for PCs, tablets, and smartphones is what the company is hoping to get in order to offer a seamless experience across all devices.
At the same time, the notification center also comes with more quick actions that are now displayed on multiple rows, which makes it easier to access them without the need to scroll or swipe.
The first technical preview build of Windows 10 for phones is version 8.15.12493.42 and indeed displays a quote from Russel Wilson when installation comes to an end.
At this point, we can’t confirm that these screenshots are completely real, but they certainly look so. And given the fact that the Windows 10 for phones preview rollout has already started for some users worldwide, expect them to be completely legitimate.
