The mid-range Lumia 640 handset could very well be among the first Windows Phone powered devices to receive the Windows 10 for Phones update when it arrives later this year, this according to Microsoft’s Scandinavian General Manager Ossi Korpela. Aside from revealing that this will be one of the first few devices to get the latest software, Korpela also touched upon some of the salient features of the Lumia 640.
Lumia 640 is set to arrive on carriers in the country. T-Mobile is going to sell it through its prepaid arm MetroPCS whereas AT&T is going to offer the handset to its customers as well.
Korpela didn’t go into details about when the Windows 10 for Phones update is going to be released, he only revealed that this will be among the first few devices to get the update when it arrives later this year.
Microsoft is going to start rolling out Windows 10 for the desktop presumably in July, perhaps the phones version may not arrive until after a couple of weeks.
