Windows 10 is just released, and it is the PCs getting the update first, and unlike all the time where the OS for computers and smartphones are different, the Windows 10 OS is going to be similar for both the category of devices. The update for smartphones will follow in the coming months, and we are already getting to know about the devices that are going to get the major upgrade first.
Neowin, a major source for Windows news, has got the information from the OS maker of Windows 10, and that includes 10 phones initially, to get the update. Check the reasons to update to Windows 10.
- Lumia 430
- Lumia 435
- Lumia 532
- Lumia 535
- Lumia 540
- Lumia 640
- Lumia 640 XL
- Lumia 735
- Lumia 830
- Lumia 930
Although the list includes some recently launched ones like Lumia 640 and its XL version, and Microsoft’s first branded phone Lumia 535, there is exclusion of high-end devices like the Lumia 1530, which makes it rather disappointing for the users of that phablet, who might be expecting to see it first here.
Earlier, Microsoft had mentioned that any Windows Phone having the Lumia Denim update version will be able to get Windows 10 update in future. The company is still sticking to that point, and thus, the list is not limited to these 10 phones, but will be expanded later and these are the devices that will get the update before others.
And again, although streamlined and similar, not all the Windows 10 features will be available on the mobile devices, which is understandable. If you are a PC user, you may want to download Windows 10 right away to see how good the new OS version is, and what’s going to come packed into the little smartphone running Windows Phone 8 currently.
