Windows 10 Mobile Comes out in December; Here’s the List of Supported Smartphones
Microsoft has announced that it will start rolling out Windows 10 Mobile to smartphones in December, and the OS can be installed on a large number of Lumia phones and an HTC model.
“We’re working to get more Windows Phone models supported worldwide,” Microsoft said in a blog post today. “Download the Windows Insider app, and when your phone is supported you’ll be able to sign in with the same Microsoft account you used to join the Windows Insider Program.”
Phones that can upgrade to Windows 10 are those which are currently running Denim update with the version number is 8.10.14219.341 or earlier, and have at least 8 GB of storage.
The list is fairly extensive and includes, of course, the Lumia 640 and 640 XL, released last February. Then there are low-end devices that came out some time ago, such as the Lumia 430 , the Lumia 520 and others.
The only non-Lumia device included in the list is the HTC One M8 for Windows. Below is the full list of smartphones compatible with Windows 10 Mobile:
Upgrading to Windows 10 will bring several new features to your smartphone, but the most interesting among them is Continuum. The feature lets you transform your Windows 10 mobile device into a PC using a hardware adapter, called the Display Dock. The new hardware has three USB ports, including USB Type-C, and both HDMI and DisplayPort.
