Support for multi-core processors:
As WP8 has been designed with special attention on the new high-powered smartphones, it will support multi-core processors.
Support for higher resolution screens:
Microsoft’s next-generation mobile OS will support two new high-definition resolutions, viz. 1280 by 768 and 1280 by 720.
Better mapping service:
It will bring Nokia Maps, which promises more comprehensive maps, directions for navigation, and the option of storing offline maps.
Users of the upcoming WP8 will be able to expand the storage capacities of their smartphones using MicroSD cards.
Digital Wallet and NFC tech:
WP8 will support NFC technology and bring a Wallet hub which will handle users’ digital coupons and credit & debit cards.
Internet Explorer 10 (IE10):
Users of the WP8 will be able to reap the benefits of more sophisticated security features of the IE10, such as SmartScreen Filter.
However, a big deficiency of WP8 is that the existing users of WP will not have access to all of the above-mentioned new features.
