Microsoft is planning to unveil Windows Phone 8.1 at its Build developer conference next Wednesday, but two video leaks are detailing some of the expected announcements today. While several Windows Phone 8.1 features — including Cortana and Action Center (notification center) — have leaked on video already, today’s latest footage shows the new Start Screen backgrounds. Microsoft has settled on an option that will allow Windows Phone 8.1 users to skin existing tiles with an image. Screenshots demonstrating the feature leaked earlier this month, and the video shows how Live Tiles can now be transparent and skinned with an image. A second video, from the same source, also provides a look at a new Windows Phone 8.1 handset that Nokia is expected to announce next week.
