Microsoft finally confirms Windows 10 Mobile will launch “Soon”

Windows 10 Mobile logoWindows 10 Mobile is already in the works right now, and everyone expects it to debut by the end of the year, but specifics on the launch date are not yet available, as Microsoft seems to be going for Apple-like secrecy as far as its new products are concerned.

But Terry Myerson, head of the operating systems group at Microsoft, said in the official Threshold 2 announcement that “Windows 10 Mobile will start rolling out to select devices soon,” which is further confirmation that we’re very close to getting the update to the new OS on our Windows Phone devices.

Again, specifics aren’t available, but it’s believed the very first phone models could get Windows 10 Mobile in early December while another batch will follow at the beginning of 2016.

Microsoft finally confirms Windows 10 Mobile will launch Soon

Microsoft seems to be trying to keep the release of Windows 10 Mobile for existing Windows Phone devices and the launch of new Lumia phones as close as possible to each other, in an attempt to let everyone experience the new operating system at the same time.

Both the new Lumia 950 and 950 XL are projected to debut later this month in markets across the world, and the existing Windows Phone models should get the upgrade shortly after that.

Sources close to the matter claim that Windows 10 Mobile is already feature-complete, and Microsoft is only working on bug fixes and performance improvements. This again is a sign that the OS is close to RTM.

As for the devices expected to receive the update this year, Lumia 640 and 640 XL are both likely to be among the first, with some pundits claiming that the flagship 930 might actually be included in the second batch of updated phones coming in early 2016.

More details are expected sometime next week, when Microsoft is projected to release a new Windows 10 Mobile build.
