Windows 10 mobile update delayed to beginning of 2016

After Delaying Windows 10 Mobile, Microsoft Will Update Just 5 Lumia Models in First Batch.

Despite forecasting a rollout of the Windows 10 smartphone update in December several months ago, Microsoft now says the upgrade will take place next year on select devices. We’ve recently learned that Windows 10 Mobile has been delayed and Windows Phone devices will only get the upgrade in early 2016, instead of December 2015, but now we have more information regarding the models that will first receive the new OS. Although no particular devices suitable to the upgrade have been confirmed by Microsoft, The Verge reports that handsets will need to be equipped with a minimum of 8GB.

They have to stand by an operating system with a new name every few years, significantly fewer apps than the competition, and a distant third place spot in the market. The power and volume buttons are well spaced and wide enough for easy reach and Microsoft managed to style up the large rear camera as part of the 950 XL’s aesthetics.

It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 (MSM8909) 1.1 GHz quad-core processor, five-megapixel rear camera with auto-focus f/2.4 with LED Flash and a two megapixel front camera. In October, the promise was different. “Broad availability of Windows 10 on other devices, including mobile phones, will begin rolling out in December.” Of course, releasing software before it’s ready is never a good idea.

For the moment, it’s not yet clear when Microsoft plans to start the rollout, and “early 2016” is the closest we can get right now, so expect more information to be provided in January. If you’re a Windows Phone fan looking to get the latest and greatest from Microsoft, your best bet is to become a Windows Insider and help the company test new builds (the latest cumulative update came out on December 17).

It ships out with a 3GB of RAM, and the combination with the processors gives the Lumia 950 XL all the firepower it needs to make one smooth mobile experience. The worst part is that Microsoft is no longer committing to a month. “Early next year” roughly translates to Q1 2016, which could be January, February, or March. But for them to take a higher stance, would depend on its operating system, which runs on Windows 10 – the same one that can be used on desktops and laptops. Mind you, even the 950 XL is not geared to run software that demands a lot of power – such as desktop versions of photo and video editing software, though the mobile versions are ample enough in some cases.

Here you can write a commentary on the recording "Windows 10 mobile update delayed to beginning of 2016".
