Microsoft reveals expanded list of Lumia phones to get next build of Windows 10. Update likely 2 weeks away. [UPDATED]


Gabe Aul and Microsoft took to their official blog today to reveal that the next build for Windows 10 for Phones was coming along nicely and they had another one week of testing before the go-ahead to release it to a larger subset of Windows Phone users.

As you recall, the first build was released more than a month ago (Feb. 12th) to a few Lumia devices (the Lumia 830, 730 and 63x series). Microsoft did explain that this was due to something call “partition stitching” and it prevented the build from being upgraded on more Lumia devices. Good news as confirmed by Gabe Aul, is that the problem has been fixed by their FileSystem team and also evaluated.

Infact the next build is already being tested by internal Microsoft testers.

But the next build will be released to a larger audience, more Lumia devices will be supported in the next build and here is the list…

  • Lumia 1020
  • Lumia 1320
  • Lumia 1520
  • Lumia 520
  • Lumia 525
  • Lumia 526
  • Lumia 530
  • Lumia 530 Dual Sim
  • Lumia 535
  • Lumia 620
  • Lumia 625
  • Lumia 630
  • Lumia 630 Dual Sim
  • Lumia 635
  • Lumia 636
  • Lumia 638
  • Lumia 720
  • Lumia 730
  • Lumia 730 Dual SIM
  • Lumia 735
  • Lumia 810
  • Lumia 820
  • Lumia 822
  • Lumia 830
  • Lumia 920
  • Lumia 925
  • Lumia 928
  • Lumia ICON
  • 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

It is important to note that this list could change before the build is available, as Gabe Aul did note that more devices could be added or removed based on further testing.

I also noticed that while the Lumia Icon was on the list, the Lumia 930 wasn’t, this is weird as both are practically the same phone.

But we will see, hopefully the Lumia 930 will be added to that list by the time the build is released.

 Gabe Aul just updated us on why the Lumia 930 is not on the list but the Lumia Icon is.
There is a unique bug specific to the Lumia 930, so let’s hope that gets fixed before the build is available…
