Microsoft confirms Windows Phone 10 update for low-end Lumia phones

By February 9th, 2015 AT 7:06 PM

One of the most determined project of Microsoft this year is now witnessing few contours of an official plan. Vice President of Microsoft Operating Systems Group, Joe Belfiore, tweeted to confirm that Windows 10 update for phones will also be rolled out to 512MB RAM Lumia devices. However, few features might be different from the original design depending on the phones, and the roll out might also be variable in nature to many phones. It means that some Lumia phones might not be able to utilize all the features of the updated OS owing to hardware constraints.

While speaking about the Technical Preview build of Windows Phone 10, Belfiore said, “It will be made available to Microsoft Insiders by this month. Also, we’re on track for Insider build coming in February as Terry said at our 1/21 event. We need to complete internal testing first, hang in!” he elaborated. Although, no specific timeline was revealed for the preview to be rolled out to the members.

Belfiore stated that only few phones in the series will be receiving the preview build of Windows Phone 10 whenever it is released to the Windows Insiders. He also confirmed that the Nokia Lumia 520 will support the preview build, but did not reveal that what other handsets are going to support the preview build. The Lumia 520 is one of the most popular Windows Phone device, as it has a market share of around one-third of all the Windows Phones combined.

The screenshot leaks of the Technical Preview build unleashed many new features. The leak has revealed a new interface, which can match the desktop and tablet version, along with an advanced recording app, a redesigned Alarms app, a well detailed Setting menu.
