Windows Phone 8.1 is in the process of emerging from development at the moment, which means plenty of new details about what it can achieve are emerging on a regular basis. And the latest news suggests that Microsoft is looking to keep pace with competitors by allowing manufacturers to outfit next-gen WP handsets with 2K displays.

The LG G3 and Samsung Galaxy F are already thought to be making 2K technology a feature of the Android market, but resolutions which go above and beyond full HD 1080p are also planned for Windows Phone devices this year, according to info dug up by Nokia Power User.

As well as being able to pump out visuals at 2K resolutions, WP 8.1 will also offer support for the Snapdragon 805 chipset from Qualcomm. This will be the next-gen quad core powerhouse that improves number crunching as well as efficiency on smartphones in 2014.

Nokia may be working on a phone called the Lumia 1520 Mini, according to reports from earlier this year, which will have a 2K AMOLED display in tow. So currently things are looking very exciting for people who are fans of Windows Phone.
