Windows 10 Mobile Creators haven’t been released to the general public yet, however, Microsoft will roll out the update to selected Windows Phones on April 25. Windows 10 Creators Update for Mobiles basically contains no major changes except a new share icon and improvements. Yesterday, we revealed that the Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update will be only available to selected and new Windows Phones.

Microsoft has another sad news for the fans. Windows 10 Mobile Operating system will only support few Qualcomm processors. Microsoft has confirmed that Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, 810, 808, 617, 210 processors will be supported by the operating system. Microsoft has still not added Snapdragon 835 processor support for Windows Phones.

Even if any company plans to launch a flagship Windows Phone device this year, it will be powered by Snapdragon 820/820/808 processors only. Microsoft has once again doomed Windows Phone operating system.

The recent reliable rumours claimed that Microsoft is planning to launch a new Windows Phone device this year, apparently the successor of Lumia 950. However, now we doubt on the phone’s success as Windows 10 Mobile still lacks Snapdragon 835 support. Hopefully, Microsoft will add Snapdragon 835 support to Windows Phone with Redstone 3 update which will be released by end of this year.

Windows Phones with Snapdragon 820 processor is still possible but buying a phone with one-year-old processor while flagship phones running Android already going for the Snapdragon 835 makes no sense, right?

Would you purchase a Windows 10 Flagship Phone without Snapdragon 835 Processor?

    Really… Geez, adding SD835 support would be trivial. The other option is that W10M will merge with W10 as CShell gets integrated into Redstone 3.
