Windows 8 build 8318 is an unleaked build of Windows 8. This build was first shown running on a Samsung Series 5 tablet/notebook convertible at Computex 2012. The ARM32 version of this build, which likely originates from a Surface RT engineering sample,[a] was supposedly uploaded to the Chinese website BetaWorld on 30 September 2019,[1] although this cannot be confirmed or refuted as the build is not publicly available.

Changes[edit | edit source]

The button controls in the Windows Aero visual style were updated to feature a flat design that is largely consistent with the Metro design language.
