Windows 10 Mobile requirements become known

With Windows 10 for desktop computers just a week away most users are focused on the system requirements of the new OS. In case you do not know what they are we will tell you – the Windows 10 hardware requirements are the same as for Windows 8.1 so the new OS will require a 1 GHz CPU with support for PAE, NX and SSE2, 1 GB of RAM and at least 16 GB of hard drive space. But what about Windows 10 Mobile?

Well, there’s good news there as well – Microsoft seems to have lowered the hardware requirements to levels lower than the ones needed for Windows Phone, which means that OEMs should not have a hard time producing devices capable of running Windows 10 Mobile. Here’s what you need – Windows 10 Mobile requires a display with resolution of at least 800 x 480 pixels, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of storage memory and a VGA camera. No front-facing camera is required and there does not seem to be a requirement for Bluetooth or accelerometers.

The low system requirements once again underline the desire of Microsoft to have as many devices running Windows 10 as possible. The low system requirements of both Windows 10 Mobile and Windows 10 are a step in this direction but we will see if this will happen and the launch of Windows 10 next week will be decisive in this effort.
