Preview program for Windows 10 Mobile lasts for quite some time, and while Insiders are waiting for Microsoft to release new builds, all other users are looking for at least some information about the final release of the operating system. And now, after a lot of speculations, we finally have a hint about the final release of Windows 10 Mobile. Reportedly, the new operating system for Windows handsets will be out in December.
Microsoft announced at yesterday’s Windows 10 Devices event the release of two premium Windows 10 phones, Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL. These phones will be available to buy soon, and they will come with the pre-installed version of Windows 10 Mobile. But what about users of other Lumia phones, and Insiders who are currently testing the preview version of Windows 10 Mobile?
Microsoft didn’t say a word about the release date of Windows 10 Mobile at yesterday’s event, but the rumor is rapidly spreading all over the internet that Windows 10 Mobile will arrive on December! This whole thing is a little bit strange, because we have this information from an answer to one question on Lumia Facebook Page. When asked when Lumia owners will receive the update, the answer was:
“Windows 10 is available on PCs and tablets now, and while Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL ship with Windows 10 for phones, broad availability of Windows 10 on other devices, including mobile phones, will begin rolling out in December.”
So instead of making an official announcement, and letting the whole huge event pass without even mentioning the release date, Microsoft revealed this information just like that, in form of answer to a question on the Facebook page. Maybe Microsoft has yet to come with an announcement, maybe admin of Lumia Facebook page made a mistake, by revealing something he/she didn’t suppose to, the time will show. And until we have some more precise information, we can only guess what Microsoft is planning with its upcoming mobile operating system.
Just as a reminder, Windows 10 Mobile will be available only for Lumia phones with at least 8GB of internal storage, which means that some Lumia phones won’t get Windows 10 Mobile upgrade at all. So, if you want to rock the new operating system once it gets released, you should switch your 4GB Lumia with a new one.
