    Will there be a X86 version of Windows 10 for phones? I would love to install it on a 64gb 4gb ram Intel atom zenphone. The bootloader is already unlocked just hoping Microsoft has a X86 version of 10 phone.

    I think a Intel powered windows phone would be a big hit with desktop enthusiasts.

    Probably will be released in a product eventually. But not to phones with unlocked bootloaders.

    Isn't the update OTA?
    The phone would already need to be running WP8 to get the upgrade.

    I believe one of the goals of W10 is to start offering X86 phones running on Intel's newest mobile processors as opposed to offering only ARM processors. This would be a huge deal actually, as you'd essentially have a small computer in your pocket capable of running any Windows program.

    If you actually check out Visual Studio 2015, there's an emulator for an X86 Windows Phone.

    I would just need a X86 wp10 image so I can load it to my phone which I have already unlocked the bootloader. If Intel versions are in the works then that answers my question.

    Yep, Intel announced recently they'd be developing X86 mobile processors specifically targeted for smartphones. Just so happens around the same time, Microsoft hinted at X86 versions of Windows 10 Mobile, although not many details.
