The Vodaphone Italy’s support forum revealed the list of Lumia smartphones that includes Lumia 535, Nokia Lumia 735, Nokia Lumia 635, Nokia Lumia 930, Nokia Lumia 830 and Nokia Lumia 1520, reports Platoff.com. The Redmond-based company announced the Lumia 950, Lumia 550 and Lumia 950 XL in October last year. They were eventually launched in November. These devices are recorded as the first to receive Windows 10 Mobile OS.
Microsoft said, “Microsoft is working closely with mobile operators to leverage their testing and our flighting to meet and exceed current quality bars. We will use their input but will decide when to send the updates out based on input from Mobile Operators and our windows Insiders.”
The Lumia handsets are not the sole devices to receive Windows 10 OS. Other tech giants like Huawei, Samsung and HTC have plans to update smartphones running Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 Mobile. You may soon hear about Windows 10 Mobile update for other Windows phones, reports Tech Times.
Since the past few months Microsoft postponed the Windows 10 Mobile rollout several times. First, the release was scheduled in December last month, but it was later postponed to January this year. Till the end of January, several European carriers had declared that the update of the devices will start soon, but later the release of the operating system was delayed until February.
Last month, there were reports by Microsoft Mexico that the update would arrive on February 29, but it was later cancelled. As of now, fresh reports strongly hint at that the OS will release today and will start rolling out immediately.
