The new Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 SDK, on Thursday, has leaked online; revealing yet-to-be-announced numerous features and enhancements of upcoming Windows Phone 8 OS.
The file, first posted Chinese site WPXAP and reported by WPCentral, is an SDK for Microsoft’s Windows Phone 8 Developer Preview. The new SDK, located on Chinese website, requires a third-party download manager, but it appears to be legit.
According to a recent report, the new SDK will allow developers to put in voice command features in their Windows Phone 8 apps. Meanwhile, one of the coolest features is the ability for apps to place notifications on the lock screen, just like on Windows 8. As well as users will also be able to change the app icon, count, and text.
The camera is also one of the key areas for change in Windows Phone 8.

As well as Nokia 3D Maps will be the default mapping app on Windows Phone 8 handsets, replacing the Bing Maps seen in previous versions. In Windows Phone 8, you will be able to easily backup your personal files, including SMS messages, applications list, photos, music, videos, IE bookmarks and more.
