Microsoft confirms which Lumia phones will get Windows 10 update

Microsoft has finally thrown some light on which Lumia devices will be getting the ‘Windows 10’ treatment. The company from Redmond started rolling out the Windows 10 update for computers and tablets recently.


Microsoft has confirmed that 10 Lumia smartphones will be updated to the latest iteration of Windows, initially. They are the Lumia 430, Lumia 435, Lumia 532, Lumia 540, Lumia 640, Lumia 640 XL, Lumia 735, Lumia 830 and Lumia 930. If you have a Lumia running on Windows Phone 8.1 with Denim Update, do not worry! As Microsoft has confirmed, those devices will also get updated gradually.

Microsoft earlier promised that Lumia devices with 512MB RAM will get updated to Windows 10 but devices like Lumia 520 and Lumia 630/635 has not made the cut. The brand new Windows 10 brings on board Cortana virtual assistant, New Photos, Videos, Music, Microsoft Edge browser, Maps, People, Mail and Calendar apps and more.

There is no exact release date given by the company on when the Lumia devices will be getting the Windows 10 update, but we predict it to happen around end of September or by early October. Microsoft also launched Office Mobile apps for Windows 10 tablets yesterday.
