List of smartphones in india eligible for Windows 10 technical preview


The Windows 10 update for smartphones, tablets and personal computers will bring every device to a common platform for providing a unified experience. So it is essential that the update is devoid of issues. In order to be thorough with the pre-testing, Microsoft has released a list of smartphones which will be eligible for getting the next build version of the Windows 10 technical preview.

When Microsoft first released the technical preview, only a handful of devices were covered under it and even the likes of the Lumia 1520 and Lumia 930 were skipped. Microsoft then released a statement that it was working on adding more devices to the preview lineup. The company was working on ‘partition stitching’  till now which would allow for re-sizing of the system partition. This has allowed a lot more devices to be added to the list of devices eligible for a technical preview.
