UK customers who have a smartphone running Windows Phone 7.5 could find that an update will be awaiting them in the coming days, since Microsoft and its network partners are currently prepping version 7.8 for launch.

TechRadar reports that the HTC 7 Mozart might be the first device to receive the update, since at the moment, it is the only phone for which version 7.8 has been confirmed.

Of course, others should follow suit in short order, since Microsoft ensured that components were comparably powered across the board, allowing for a unified Windows Phone experience.

There are a wide range of handsets still on sale with Windows Phone 7 in tow, including the likes of the Nokia Lumia 800. Although these phones are not compatible with the newer Windows Phone 8 operating system, version 7.8 does much to mirror some of its functions.

Most notably, it will add in the option to create smaller tiles on the homescreen, so that more app shortcuts can be squeezed into the same area.

The only bad news is that LG has said that it is in no rush to bring Windows Phone 7.8 to the Optimus 7 handset.
