Microsoft has released a list of Lumia phones that will be getting Windows 10 Mobile upgrade at the time of launch. Not all devices will get Windows 10 at launch and devices like the 630, 530, and 520 will have to wait for some time.

Back in November 2014, Microsoft said that all Lumia phones will be getting the Windows 10 upgrade- that simple meant that all Lumia phones with Windows phone 8 will get Windows 10 upgrade. Recently, on its website, Microsoft has updated a list that hints at the fact that initially Windows 10 Mobile will be available for selected mobile devices.
The Windows 10 Mobile is expected to come around November to Lumia devices. The product homepage for Windows 10 Mobile states that:
