If you are the owner of a Nokia Lumia smartphone running Windows Phone as the operating system, Microsoft has some good news. The software giant has announced that all Lumia Windows Phones will be getting an upgrade to Windows 10 next year when the latest flavor of the operating system launches. A lot of Windows Phone users have been wondering if they would get the update, so it’s nice to hear something from Microsoft on the subject.
Word on the upgrades came from the official Lumia Twitter account in response to a tweet from a customer that asked a question about upgrades. The tweet response read, “There will be Windows 10 upgrades for all Lumia Windows Phone 8 devices :) And we will release new Windows 10 models in the future!”
It’s worth noting that the Microsoft twitter account isn’t exactly the same as an official press release on the subject. Tweets from official channels have been wrong before, but it seems that upgrades are coming. As for a time frame, there is no information on that.
The expectation is that the Lumia devices running Windows Phone 8 will get the upgrade to Windows 10 later next year. Note that the tweet did say new Windows 10 models were coming, not Windows 10 smartphones. It has been said in the past that Microsoft is moving away from calling devices phones in favor of calling them smart devices.
