Most of our readers who are not already on the Insider Windows 10 Builds are eagerly awaiting the official upgrade to Windows 10 Mobile from their carriers.
Even by Microsoft’s (now redacted) account this was due to have started in December 2015, but of course we know they have missed that deadline. Vodafone Australia has said they are waiting for the OS bits to test, and expect this “mid-January” and Movistar Spain has said they expect to push out the update at the end of January 2016.
Now Microsoft’s twitter support @LumiaHelp has said the update is expected Soontm.
LumiaHelp referred questioners to their support page which notes 8 GB internal storage is required, and that “not every phone will support all possible Windows 10 features” and certain features will require advanced hardware and will not be available to all devices.
Some features which will likely not come to upgraded handsets include USB OTG which needs USB dual-mode support and Continuum for phones, which is only available for devices with the right GPU that supports dual screens.
It is expected the update will come initially to selected handsets, including the Lumia 630, 640, 640 XL, 730 and Lumia 930, and to the rest of the Windows Phone 8.1 Denim handsets after.
