    Didn't notice the wifi was on when I first looked at it but that would make sense.

    Im still a bit sceptical though especially as there aren't any firm leaks on GDR3 yet and this video shows 8.1 which is more than likely 6 months away.

    GDR3 is finished and submitted to OEMs and 8.1 is being in development.

    Notice that in the linked post, the author mentioned that the source of this video had "made lots of jokes". So a large question mark on the genuineness of this video...

    Nope, October is when GDR3 is due to be released. By now they should have it completed and be submitting it to OEMs.

    This is not an actual video of a phone or emulator. There were a bunch of leaked screenshots and someone edited a video together so people could see it in action. Still doesn't prove whether it's real or not, but I like the ideas, the implementation just doesn't seem very refined. Like a *(star) for notifications?? ew!

    ppl are generally hoping these are fake cuz they don;t like the idea that notification is built on a tile. I would say it's a big possibility and I'll prepare myself for the worst.

    Thats for 1080p screens. Although the rumor is unproven, this is unlikely

    All upcoming flagships will be 1080p. 3 columns might just be for phablets.

    Good thing you can just use larger tiles if you don't want it as busy. And like has been mentioned already, I think only the really large screens will have 3 columns otherwise the small icons will be really tiny on sub 5" screens.
