The company released the first test build of Windows 10 Mobile in February, but it supported just a handful of Lumia devices – 630, 635, 636, 638, 730 and 830, to be precise.
In a March 27 blog post however, the company said that the second test build (which will not be available until the first week of April, will support a majority of Windows mobile devices. The list is as follows:

  • 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
  • Lumia 925
  • Lumia 928
  • Lumia ICON
  • Microsoft Lumia 430
  • Microsoft Lumia 435
  • Microsoft Lumia 435 Dual SIM
  • Microsoft Lumia 435 Dual SIM DTV
  • Microsoft Lumia 532
  • Microsoft Lumia 532 Dual SIM
  • Microsoft Lumia 640 Dual SIM
  • Microsoft Lumia 535 Dual SIM

The biggest exception from the above list of possible supported devices is the Lumia 930, which Microsoft says is due to a bug unique to that devices which it is still trying to track down.
According to Microsoft, the first Windows 10 Mobile build wasn’t supported across a wide spectrum of Lumia devices due to very tight OS partitions, and the partition stitching feature code that required to support the above mentioned devices came in late last week.
