The Microsoft Lumia 950, 950 XL and 550 have all released in recent months running the Windows 10 Mobile OS. However, it’s been quite a wait for this upgrade to arrive for older Lumia devices. Recently we reported that the update was imminent, and now the good news is that the Lumia 640 Windows 10 Mobile update has finally started rolling out.
Earlier this month we gave news from T-Mobile in Germany who had confirmed the Windows 10 Mobile update for several older Nokia and Microsoft Lumia phones. You can see full details on that here. It was stated that the rollout would arrive over the course of two weeks, and two of the devices on the list were the Microsoft Lumia 640 LTE and the 640 XL LTE version.
Now it’s reported that the Microsoft Lumia 640 LTE model is the first to start receiving the Windows 10 Mobile update. This has already started for units of the phone purchased from T-Mobile in Poland in a phased rollout. Owners may require a little patience, but the finalized Windows 10 Mobile version will continue to be pushed out as an OTA (over-the-air) update over the course of the next few days.
The update is build 02177.00000.15184.36002 and owners of the Lumia 640 LTE will receive notification to their device. Alternatively it’s worth manually checking by heading to the updates section under Settings. While this Lumia 640 Windows 10 upgrade is arriving in Poland so far, this is still good news for owners of the Lumia 640 LTE elsewhere. Usually once we see an update arrive for one region, it’s not long before we see it start to roll out in further markets.
This is also a promising sign for owners of other Lumia smartphones waiting for the Windows 10 Mobile update. Now that the Lumia 640 Windows 10 Mobile update has appeared we expect it to arrive for other Lumia phones very soon. It’s always interesting to track the progress of these updates rolling out across different regions, so do let us know when you receive the Microsoft Lumia 640 Windows 10 Mobile update for your device. Are you impatient for this update to arrive for your Lumia 640 LTE or other Lumia phone?
