We've already learned that Windows Phone 7.8 will sport the new homescreen tiles, with variable sizes allowing more to fit on the display, and now a document which is on Nokia's website reveals greater detail.
New camera functions
As the document is from the Finnish manufacturer the 7.8 upgrade for devices made by other firms could differ slightly, but we'd expect it to stay the same across the board for the most part.
According to the document, Windows Phone 7 users can expect to get an improved camera application, which will offer Smart Group Shot, action, panorama and self-timer options.
Microsoft will also bring Wi-Fi tethering to Windows Phone 7.8, allowing you to share your handset's internet connection with other devices, plus the ability to flip the phone over to silence an incoming call, message tone or alarm.
It looks like current Windows Phone users will miss out of the likes of proper multi-tasking, NFC capabilities, over-the-air updates, multi-core processor support and IE 10 – all of which appear in Windows Phone 8.
