In the App list, scroll down until you see an option for Settings. You can also search for Settings using the search bar at the top. Then select the Settings option.

In the Settings window, scroll down 2/3 of the way until you see an option for About (It will say Windows Phone under it). Select this option.

The About screen shows specifications for your phone, including the phone model, and the operating system version. The phone in the video was shown to be a Nokia Lumia 521 with the Windows 8.0 operating system.
