Microsoft Windows 10 for Phone-2

Microsoft’s new Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL will be the first smartphones on the market running Windows 10, but in December, the update will begin rolling out to existing Windows Phone devices, the software giant has confirmed.

“Broad availability of Windows 10 on other devices, including mobile phones, will begin rolling out in December,” Microsoft told fans on its official Lumia page on Facebook.

The company added that it is its “ambition to make an upgrade available for majority of Lumia smartphones running Windows Phone 8.1.” 8GB of internal storage is a must, however, so that rules out entry-level handsets like the Lumia 530.

According to a Microsoft support page, only handsets running Lumia Denim will be able to upgrade, and “not every phone will support all possible Windows 10 features.”

If you don’t want to wait until December for a Windows 10 smartphone, you can pre-order the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL today ahead of their official debut on October 26.
