windows 10 mobile update requirements

With Windows 10 for PC out for the public yesterday, now all eyes are on Windows 10 for Mobile. But no such luck of knowing when will be the release of this next big OS update to Windows Phones, but Microsoft seems sure about which phones would get the update first.

On one of it’s webpages, Microsoft has mentioned the names of ten Lumia devices that would be receiving the Windows 10 Mobile upgrade when it starts being available to public.

“The following Lumia smartphones will receive a free upgrade when available: Lumia 430, Lumia 435, Lumia 532, Lumia 535, Lumia 540, Lumia 640, Lumia 640 XL, Lumia 735, Lumia 830, and Lumia 930.”

This, obviously due to how it was put, raised a doubt among many if these were the only devices that would be getting a Windows 10 Mobile update. Neowin went forward and contacted Microsoft about the same and, to much relief, got an explanation saying :

“This is an initial list of in-market devices to receive the Windows 10 update. It is our ambition to bring Windows 10 to all Lumia devices running Lumia Denim software, noting that some features will vary, based on the hardware specifications.”

SO that should clear most of the doubts the Windows Phone users are having about which phones will get the new Windows 10 OS for phones.

How do you feel about the older generation of Lumia phones not being the first ones to get the official upgrade, keeping aside the Technical Preview?
