Emulator files confirm 1080p support for next WP8 build
The latest version of Visual Studio 2013, which, among other things, allows developers to emulate Windows Phone in order to test applications, had been found to contain files that enable fullHD 1080p emulation. The discovery comes courtesy of Justin Angel, a former Microsoft and Nokia employee.

The findings in Visual Studio 2013, which was previewed by Microsoft at their Build developer conference last week, all but confirms the previous rumors that fullHD support will be added to the upcoming GDR3 OS refresh for OEMs.
There’s even rumors floating around that the upcoming 41MP Nokia EOS may have such a screen, or get a separate 1080p variant down the road – we’ll find out for sure come July 11.
