    We don't know.
    Anything we have is either rumor or speculation.
    It is likely, but it's far to early to tell.

    You are right...but well...we know the kernel is going to be the same..WindowsNT... And the new news about arm phones getting a preview...in early 2015...these two are pretty strong signs...imo..lets see
    Hoping for the best..

    Let's face it , they need to sell those 530s , so it may not be offered as a business decision , still imo 520 users should be happy with getting wp 8.1 , how many times have OEMs completely screwed over android users with not offering an update for a more than eligible hardware .

    Considering the popularity of the 520 and the fact they're still releasing phones with similar specs (512MB RAM), I would be very surprised if it didn't get Win9 or at least a stripped down version.

    That means if 520 wouldn't be getting WP9 then it would be the same with 530
    And technically 530 will only update 1 and 2, that's it...

    And last suggestion don't buy 520 and 530 anymore if they wouldn't be getting WP9 update...

    Since MS has no news of changing the kernel, there won't be another WP7 to WP8 incident and I suppose all phones running WP8/8.1 can update to WP9. The problem is the phone's hardware limitations. Will it run WP9? Probably yes. But will it run smoothly? That is the more concerning matter.

    Only Snapdragon 800 windows phones and ones that come with windows phone 8.1 will be upgradeable to windows 9. Although others may be able to. Source: TKTechNews

    If wpcentral doesn't report it then it's not a reliable source, simple as that.

    I doubt, but maybe we can expect some ongoing updates just like the WP7 has had and by that I mean maybe we get 8.5 or 8.8 update..

    Sorry, but running a PC-based OS isn't possible on a phone, though that would be interesting to have a desktop on such a small screen.

    Based on the grapevine that I know of, L520 would be getting the upgrade, albeit lacking a few features such as split screen multitasking which is supposedly going to be made available to larger screens... But as of now it's all merely speculation until anything official is announced, quite possibly at the Berlin event to be held on Thursday

    I wonder how Microsoft is going to explain why they don't upload Nokia 520-920. I guess they will say the Windows Phone 9 is available just on quad-core devices.

    No, it will not come for 512mb devices....sorry.... :)

    Seriously, no one has a clue, no one really knows (besides some hackers, lead devs and Microsoft) what Windows 9 is like never mind what Windows Phone 9 or Microsoft Mobile 9 (what ever they are going to call it).

    In till we have an official LEAK or press statement, we know nothing for sure. Anyone saying anything more is just guessing at this point.

    Two things:

    1. Microsoft said they were going to support devices for 36 months. That's 3 years of updates. So I would say yes, you're getting Windows 9.
    2. Microsoft's new direction with Windows Phone (or soon to be Windows 9 / mobile / RT whatever) is to drive it down market to win volume. So I would expect hardware requirements not to go up, which means... you're probably getting Windows 9.


    Anyway, I'm a nobody just spouting stuff on the internet.
