Microsoft announced Windows 10 in September 2014, and while we know it will be released next year, we don’t know what current Windows Phone handsets will be graced with the update. We’ve combined official announcements with less formal news that we’ve heard in order for you to make sure when Windows 10 is headed to your device.
All Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8 handsets will be updated
While it’s still too early to determine exactly how many current Windows Phone devices will receive the Windows 10 update, the Lumia Twitter account had no problem stating that all Lumia Windows Phone 8 handsets will receive the update.
@_Y06_ There will be Windows 10 upgrades for all Lumia Windows Phone 8 devices :) And we will release new Windows 10 models in the future!

Since we’re still a year away from the update, it’s too early to determine timeframes and carrier availability. Regardless, considering the majority of Windows Phone devices out there are Lumia-branded, this should come as good news to the majority of Windows Phone users.
We’ll update this space as we hear from other Windows Phone manufacturers, such as HTC and Samsung.
