Microsoft has today dropped a new Build for windows 10 for phones. Named Windows 10 Build 10051, the new build has added support for a slew of new Windows Phone devices, thus bringing almost the entire Windows ecosystem under Windows 10 Technical Preview’s ambit.

Announcing the same via blog post, Microsoft has made the following devices, compatible with the new build :

  • Lumia 1020
  • Lumia 1320
  • Lumia 1520
  • Lumia 520
  • Lumia 525
  • Lumia 526
  • Lumia 530
  • Lumia 530 Dual Sim
  • Lumia 535
  • Lumia 620
  • Lumia 625
  • Lumia 630
  • Lumia 630 Dual Sim
  • Lumia 635
  • Lumia 636
  • Lumia 638
  • Lumia 720
  • Lumia 730
  • Lumia 730 Dual SIM
  • Lumia 735
  • Lumia 810
  • Lumia 820
  • Lumia 822
  • Lumia 830
  • Lumia 920

However, if you are a Lumia Icon Owner, there’s a bad news for you. Microsoft hasn’t dropped this new build to certain devices with larger resolutions (930, Icon, and 640XL). There is a “scaling issue” with resolutions of these phones, which makes the UI too small to be usable. Microsoft will however add code to support new scaling thresholds for these devices, soon.

As for certain screenshots of the new preview, you can have a look at them here.
