Whilst many are still waiting for Nokia Amber (Nokia’s suped up GDR2) here’s what you should expect in GDR3.

So here’s what’s coming in GDR3:

  • Orientation Lock
  • Driver Mode, will turn on automatically when you connect it via Bluetooth. Can reject phone calls / sms and send auto reply back
  • Ability to have 3 medium sized tiles in a row
  • 1080p / new SoCs, which we knew for quite some time now

Other features that are currently being tested and are likely to be pushed to GDR3:

80% chance

  • Ability to actually close the apps via multi tasking

60% chance

  • Silent NFC (meaning no more constant confirmations for pairing something)

Please don’t ask for source, there is none.

Other things you’ve been requesting might appear in a bigger update much later on with Blue (meh).

Fingers crossed something interesting happens in October.
