    There are multiple tiles within a tile.... when you touch that tile, a drop down list of the tiles within that tile appears & allows you to select from them.
    Maybe i'm missing something but I've never seen this before.

    They're called live folders. They come with wp8.1 update 1. You create them by dragging a tile into another. They allow you to create groups in a folder that still display the live tile info. Never seen the box lines though. Second picture is definently live folder.

    Those are live folders. They are on 8.1 gdr1 so they are kind of new. Here's how to use them How to create Live Folders on Windows Phone 8.1 GDR1 | Windows Central
