Windows 10 Mobile, the official name for Windows 10 for phones, will reportedly launch in September according to a new report.
The rumor follows Microsoft’s confirmation that Windows 10 Mobile will launch sometime after the full version of Windows 10 launches on July 29. According to Neowin, Microsoft dropped the September launch date during a presentation to its partners.
In one alleged Microsoft slide, Microsoft says that “Windows Mobile skus will be available late next quarter.” We’re currently in the second quarter of the year, and the tail end of the third quarter is September. However, Neowin warns that a Microsoft spokesperson who provided the slide to partners suggested that the launch could occur in October, too.
Keep in mind that September appears to be the earliest launch, at least from this data, because Neowin also notes that we’ll need to wait for carrier testing in some markets first. We’re also still waiting for details on new smartphones that will run the latest Windows 10 Mobile software.
At the very least, we now have a general idea when Microsoft plans to start kicking Windows 10 Mobile out the door, so look for new smartphones right around this fall.
