Windows 10 Mobile Cumulative Update 10586.212 Could Be the Next Release

"The Lumia 650 is Microsoft's latest Windows 10 Mobile device offering, featuring a 1.3 GHz quad core Snapdragon 212 chipset, 5" 720p OLED, 8 MP rear camera, 5 MP front camera, 1 GB RAM, and 16 GB of internal storage (expandable to 200 GB). But Windows chief insists that he is committed to the platform. Instead, the best way to reach customers is by developing apps for 9 to 30-inch screens (in other words, tablet, laptop and desktop users), while Xbox and HoloLens provide platforms to do "new and exciting things".

After several confusing tweets coming from HTC's Twitter account, which first said that the M8 would actually get Windows 10 Mobile but then changed its mind and said that Microsoft was right and no upgrade would be released, the phone manufacturer ended up blaming the software giant for not providing the new operating system for its own devices. Whether that means Microsoft has a Surface Phone up their sleeves, only time will tell.

Having written off losses to the tune of billions of dollars after buying the Lumia brand, Microsoft still invested heavily on Windows 10 and has released four new phones in as many months, including two premium ones.

"We're going to do some cool things with phones, but this year phones are an important part of our family but not the tip of the spear", he added. The company has admitted that Windows 10 Mobile just isn't a focus for 2016.

This has now been fixed with the new Windows 10 Mobile OS update for the users of Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL devices. But they're just one of the two markets Microsoft CMO Chris Capossela recently suggested (at the Citi Global Technology conference) that Microsoft can "serve incredibly well".

No details have been provided on how exactly the M8 for Windows does not meet hardware requirements because, at least on paper, the device seems to have what it takes to run Windows 10 Mobile quite smoothly.
