Next Windows 10 for Phones build will be available on almost all Windows Phone 8 devices [List]


It has been about 45-days since the launch of early build of Windows 10 Technical Preview for Phones for only 6 devices. Now, Microsoft has announced that the next build of Windows 10 will be available on whole lot of devices including the flagship Lumia 1520 and most-popular Lumia 520.


Microsoft’s Windows Insider Team head, Gabe aul, has posted on the official Windows Blog that the next build of Windows 10 for Phones will be available on almost all Windows Phone 8.x devices.

Microsoft previously delayed the launch of Windows 10 for Phones due to partition-stitching problems where only 6 devices were supported. Now, the problem seems to have been fixed and the internal testing has been going on since the last week on majority of Windows Phone 8 devices.

The following Windows Phone 8.x devices will be supported in the next Preview build of Windows 10 for Phones:

  • Lumia 1020

  • Lumia 1320

  • Lumia 1520

  • Lumia 520

  • Lumia 525

  • Lumia 526

  • Lumia 530

  • Lumia 530 Dual Sim

  • Lumia 535

  • Lumia 620

  • Lumia 625

  • Lumia 630

  • Lumia 630 Dual Sim

  • Lumia 635

  • Lumia 636

  • Lumia 638

  • Lumia 720

  • Lumia 730

  • Lumia 730 Dual SIM

  • Lumia 735

  • Lumia 810

  • Lumia 820

  • Lumia 822

  • Lumia 830

  • Lumia 920

  • Lumia 925

  • Lumia 928

  • Lumia ICON

  • Microsoft Lumia 430

  • Microsoft Lumia 435

  • Microsoft Lumia 435 Dual SIM

  • Microsoft Lumia 435 Dual SIM DTV

  • Microsoft Lumia 532

  • Microsoft Lumia 532 Dual SIM

  • Microsoft Lumia 640 Dual SIM

  • Microsoft Lumia 535 Dual SIM

You might be wondering why the flagship Lumia 930 is not listed in the above supported devices and Gabe Aul has tweeted that a bug in the UX is causing everything to be tiny on the full-HD screen of Lumia 930 but, it might get fixed by the launch of public build for other phones.

The above devices are being tested internally but, Microsoft might decide to remove any device from list of devices which will get Windows 10 build if, any bug is found in those devices.

Microsoft hasn’t mentioned about the exact launch date of Windows 10 for Phones build but, Gabe Aul has mentioned at-least another week to test the build internally. We might see the Windows 10 build for Phones in the first week of April 2015.
