Windows 10 Technical Preview for Phones Tipped to Release Monday
The Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones is expected to be released for consumers by late February; though a new report suggests that it might release on Monday "if no major bugs are found". Additionally, more leaked screenshots from the Windows 10 for phones have popped on the Web while Microsoft's Joe Belfiore has confirmed that the company is also working on a lite-version of Windows 10 for phones with 512MB of RAM.

Nokiapoweruser has received an anonymous tip from a source that claims Microsoft will release the Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones on Monday. The emailed tip notes, "Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones (8.15.12495.44) will be released on Monday, February 9 at 9am PST (10:30pm IST)."

If the rumour turns out to be true, we might see the Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones made available to download on Monday ahead of its expected release for members of Windows Insider Program.

The sources added, "This build is currently being tested by Microsoft employees and if no major bugs are found it will be released for Windows Insiders on Monday morning. Not all the phones will get the first preview build, but more phones will be supported in the upcoming updates."

Ever since Microsoft announced Windows 10 for phones, consumers have been raising questions whether the update would be released for the company's entry-level Windows Phone smartphones packing just 512MB of RAM. Joe Belfiore, Microsoft's Corporate Vice President, Operating Systems Group putting aside all speculations confirmed in a tweet on Sunday that the company is working on Windows 10 for phones with 512MB of RAM sans some features.

Unfortunately, Belfiore did not talk about the features that will not make it to the entry-level Windows Phone handsets. In another tweet, he confirmed that timing of the release for various phones will differ.

Microsoft's Engineering General Manager, Gabriel Aul, who is also a member of the Windows Insider Program for Windows 10, again gave out some more details about the Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones. Aul revealed that phones with 512MB RAM will also receive the Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones.

In other news, new leaked screenshots from the Windows 10 for phones have been posted by ITHome (first picked up by Windows Central) that show more details about the new UI in upcoming OS.
