Enthusiasts set about creating a Windows 10 port for Android smartphones

Updated On

Almost 5 years have passed since the release of the Lumia 950 and  Lumia 950 XL , and official support has long ended for them, but smartphones are still popular among enthusiasts. A few years after porting the ARM version of Windows 10 to these devices, developers were able to achieve new impressive results. 

Enthusiasts launched on the Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL a fairly fresh build of Windows 10 (19041). Smartphones are fully functional with this OS version, and you can even run ARM64, ARM, and x86 applications on them. In addition, the majority of sensors (accelerometer, gyroscope and light sensor), notifications, SMS and cellular networks (not in all regions) function normally on devices. 

Having achieved the operability of the ARM version of Windows 10 on Lumia smartphones, the development team took up the corresponding port for flagship devices running Android. If they succeed, then users of many current models will be able to get an almost full-fledged Windows in a mobile version.
