Windows Phone is definitely going 1080p this year

Windows Phone 1080p

Windows Phone devices that were announced this year up until now bear the same characteristics — none of them had 1080p displays. Well, not for the rest of the year, at least.

References which point to 1080p resolution support for Windows Phone were discovered and posted to Twitter by former Nokia and Microsoft engineer Justin Angel in the recently-release Visual Studio 2013 Preview tool

Numerous publications on the web point to a GDR3 (General Distribution Release 3) update that is supposed to come this year to new and existing Windows Phone devices. The update is expected to bring the said 1080p resolution support as well as compatibility with quad-core processors and 5-inch devices or phablets, if you may.

Windows Phone currently only supports WVGA, WXGA, and 720p display resolutions and dual-core processors.
