Have you ever thought of running Windows 10 on a smartphone? The idea might seem crazy but a recent experiment involved booting the operating system on OnePlus 6T.

We have already seen that a couple of devices currently support Windows 10 on ARM including Lenovo Yoga 630 WOS devices and Samsung Galaxy Book 2 powered by Snapdragon 850.

On a side note, Windows 10 powered Android smartphones are also being tested by many tech enthusiasts. 

Bas Timmer who is a software developer based in the Netherlands has been working really hard to run Windows 10 on ARM.

In his recent experiment, he has managed to run Windows 10 on OnePlus 6T. However, it seems like the experiment has not been that successful yet as he experienced a blue screen of death (BSOD) error while booting Windows 10 on the OnePlus 6T.

He took it to Twitter to share an image of the device with the social media community.

As a matter of fact, the developer has not shared any details on how others can replicated this experiment.

Those who are planning to attempt a similar experiment should keep in mind that it can be a disappointing experience for them.

As the device’s AMOLED display runs on a Synaptics touch controller, that is why Windows 10 OnePlus 6T supports touch display. Moreover, Synaptics touch controller is already supported by the Window devices.

Bringing Windows 10 on ARM might take some time

Moving further, a follow-up tweet Timmer added that the Android smartphone also faced a UFS problem. The developer is not yet sure how much time is required to fix the bugs.

Therefore, tech enthusiasts don’t have any other option right now but to wait and see how this story unfolds.

Right after this announcement, users started to share their thoughts about the experiment on Reddit. They stressed out once again they want Microsoft to bring Windows 10 on ARM as soon as possible. 

It is kinda sad that people are able to get Windows 10 on ARM installed to a phone but Microsoft hasn’t. Here’s hoping they are doing it behind the scenes and they’ll announce some executable image like for PCs and laptops.

Users should be careful while planning to perform any type of system-level modification on their devices. You will void the warranty of your device. Moreover, such tests might render your smartphone useless.
