Windows Phone 8 to include new Windows 8 like lockscreen icons?

Zac Bowden

Microsoft have been trying to unify both Windows Phone and Windows since the announcement of Windows 8, and have been doing a good job thus-far. Today, a new screenshot has leaked from a Microsoft video that shows lockscreen icons, just like Windows 8.

As seen above, these lockscreen icons mirror that pretty closely with what Windows 8 already has. This is a great iteration to the lockscreen as it allows quick access to information at just a glance.

Currently, Windows Phone 7 already has a feature just like this, but we are expecting Windows Phone 8 to include a more Windows 8 like version, such as third party apps and custom app notifications on the lockscreen.
