Popular tech site GSM Arena has just posted that the new SDK for Windows Phone 8.1 has a fingerprint support and UI customization. This will take the Windows Phone OS to the Android and iOS level. The Biometric support will provide more security to the users and also this will require new hardware so it might not work with existing devices. For UI customization it will be available for all the devices. Perhaps, there will be a option to select custom background images for the start screen as leaked by Tom few days back. Finally there’s some leaked information on how WP 8.1 will handle messaging on dual-SIM smartphones.
