Windows 11 has fully leaked online, but that hasn’t stopped Microsoft from moving forward with its teaser trailers. In a new tweet to remind Windows fans of its upcoming Microsoft Event, it just dropped another teaser trailer for Windows 11.
The new teaser is a short, 10-second video (opens in new tab), but there’s enough to unpack here. The model’s face is bathed in blue lighting, the very same shade of blue featured on the leaked Windows 11 background image. There’s also a close-up shot of the model’s ear, which seems to reinforce a previous teaser video (opens in new tab), which alludes to a new startup sound for Windows 11 (opens in new tab).
Although a version of Windows 11 has already been leaked, featuring a total rework of the Windows UI so that it looks slightly reminiscent of the macOS, it’s entirely possible that many elements of the upcoming OS have been since been changed. That means that Microsoft could still have a few surprises in store.
The Microsoft Event is getting closer. Join us on June 24th at 11 am ET. Set a reminder 👉 https://t.co/CFxi6l6BZj pic.twitter.com/VrnJDORIGnJune 21, 2021
- Windows 11 name confirmed in fresh leak from Microsoft
- Maybe Windows 11 won't be as ugly as Windows 10
- Here’s how the new windows snapping works in Windows 11
What we know about Windows 11 so far
Our sister site Windows Central was able to take Windows 11 for a quick spin (opens in new tab), and we’re seeing a total rework of the Windows user interface. There’s an appealingly minimalist background image and a new taskbar whose icons seem to be centred at default while the Microsoft Store seems to be sporting a slightly cleaner, less crowded look. And, they all seem to point at Microsoft getting a few inspirations from Apple’s macOS.
Still, this leaked version is likely to be an earlier one, which could mean that Microsoft has made a lot of changes since then. We could be looking at something audio-related that’s much bigger than new sounds judging from this new trailer, or possibly more updates to improve user experience on touchscreens and multi-monitor setups.
Whatever these new updates will be, we’ll definitely be getting much more than what we’ve seen so far – at least, if Microsoft were to justify a new numbered moniker to its OS, instead of simply rolling out another Windows 10 update.
Whatever they are, we won’t have to wait too long as the Microsoft Event is only a few days away on June 24. In the meantime, we’ll keep you updated on any fresh Windows 11 leaks and rumors to come out before then.
