We got a nice little scoop on Windows Weekly today: Microsoft’s Gabe Aul appeared on the show and announced that the next build of Windows 10 for Phone will become available to Windows Insiders on Friday at 10 am PT. The bad news? Lumia 930 and Icon users won’t be able to get this build, sorry.
This new build will be the first one Microsoft has provided in two months: the first build arrived on February 12th, and supported only a small number of Lumia handsets. But thanks to an early heads-up,
Since then, Microsoft more recently revealed that a very long list of Lumia handsets would be able to install the next Windows 10 build for Phone. That’s still true, but there are two phones that won’t be getting it: The (nearly identical) Lumia 930 and Lumia Icon. (We had previously known the 930 wouldn’t get it, but the Icon is new information.)
Here’s the list, again, of the phones that will get the new build on Friday.
Lumia 530 Dual Sim
Lumia 630 Dual Sim
Lumia 730 Dual SIM
Microsoft Lumia 430
Microsoft Lumia 435
Microsoft Lumia 435 Dual SIM
Microsoft Lumia 435 Dual SIM DTV
Microsoft Lumia 532
Microsoft Lumia 532 Dual SIM
Microsoft Lumia 640 Dual SIM
Microsoft Lumia 535 Dual SIM
Looking forward to Friday: Aul says there’s a lot of new stuff in there.
