Microsoft Unveils The First Windows Phone Models To Get Windows 10 Mobile

MICROSOFT has launched the Windows Phone handsets that will be the first to be upgraded to Windows 10 Mobile but has not confirmed when the operating system will be released.

The company has named the first 10 handsets as the Lumia 435, Lumia 430, Lumia 532, Lumia 540, Lumia 535, Lumia 640, Lumia 640 XL, Lumia 735, Lumia 830 and Lumia 930.

On the company website (via ZDnet), Microsoft wrote: 
“Get ready for exciting new Windows 10 features on your Lumia. Take care of everyday tasks faster with an improved Action Center, enjoy a distraction-free reading experience with the Microsoft Edge browser, and do more on the move with universal apps like Maps, Calendar, and Photos.”

Windows 10 Mobile will be accessible for all smartphones that run Windows Phone 8.1 because the system necessities are pretty much the same. The Lumia devices that will get the software upgrade first are newer handsets that either sells well at the moment or are situated at the highest point of the lineup.

People who are rocking older Lumia Windows Phones will need to hold up longer to make the step to Windows 10 Mobile, however, this will happen in the end. There is no word from Microsoft concerning Windows Phones sold by other vendors, but this is to be expected.

The greatest surprise is that the flagship Lumia 1520 is not on the list, in spite of the fact that the smaller 930 appears to be among the models getting the upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile in the first wave. Besides, the Lumia 520, which keeps on being the most popular Windows Phone model, is also missing from the first part of the rollout, and there’s no doubt that many users will be disappointed.

For the moment, we can’t do anything but wait until Microsoft announce the beginning of the rollout and gives an announcement on this so we’ll know for sure which models are getting the new OS and which are not.

The long and short of it seems to be that Microsoft will send the update out to Windows Phone users, and carriers will not be in charge of the rollout. This should ensure that Windows 10 Mobile reaches older Lumia's more quickly, but only time will tell.
