    Windows Phone 9 to be available for all existing Windows Phone 8 devices, preview in January 2015 (Rumour)

    Windows Phone 9, the mobile / laptop SKU of one Windows Threshold should be available for all existing Windows Phone 8 devices including Lumia 520, as far as of now. Though, not all features will come to all the devices!!

    Some features like Split-screen multitasking, which will help users in making most out of their Windows Phone Phablets mayn’t be available for smaller screen devices. Though, its not very sure of the minimum display size criteria, but it may be 4.9 inch or higher.

    Coming to when one can expect Windows Phone 9 to hit developer preview devices, sources talk about a early January 2015 timeline.

    It is expected that Microsoft will announce the Windows Phone 9 at the September 30th event along with Windows 9

    So they're basically not removing items from the HCL? Wonder what the upgrade cost will be for the retail version when it is available.

    The retail version is the one they'll start to sell in shops/online as the upgrade for Win8.x users.

    Yup, i got it..
    With WP9 many new processors all will gain support.
    It was rumored that WP8.1 Update 2 will bring support to new processors..
    but now it looks like the things have changed.. Nd this has been shifted to WP9.
    And about the price tag cant say what MS will do, as they have surprised us with Lumia 830 in an affordable price

    I would not be to sure that all WP8.1 Devices get WP8.2. Somewhere i read "all devices that got shipped with 8.1 will get the update" This is a big difference to "all devices which run 8.1".

    Nope that will not be case..
    Then only 4 Lumia devices will get WP9
    Lumia 630,(730/735),830,930,HTC M8 & few other new OEMs
    So you are telling that even 1520 is not getting WP9..
    It wont happen for sure..

    I have a feeling it will be called Windows One. "One Windows for all devices". This seems to be in line with Xbox One and One Drive.

    Got me thinking about that too. Shipped with 8.1. At least my soon 830 is upgradeable to 9.

    You can't have One after Eight. You can have nine after eight.

    Nope.
    All Windows Phone (Lumia) those who have updated to WP8.1 is able to update to WP9..
    But supported features may vary according to hardware

    And you guys know this is an unconfirmed rumour you are discussing, right? Right? 'Cos later on its going to turn into 'Microsoft promised all phones will get WP9 but they lied, they suck", etc, etc when they have made no official statement on the next version of WP. Just FYI.

    We live in a world of Rumors. So Believe in Rumors & hope they will become True.
    99% this rumor is going to be true..

    I'd rather believe in what I can and enjoy now instead of living in a dream world because the reality is the entitlement mentality is so prevalent, especially among WP users, that the expectations will be totally unrealistic and will inevitably lead to frustration and disappointment. I think Microsoft are the most stupid, incompetent company who have wasted the potential of WP but even though I have things I would like added I still enjoy using it (apart from the ultimate POS Xbox Music) and am not expecting a free ride like too many seem to do.

    Thats your Choice.. But we are different.. We do believe in MS..
    For now and then
    In which case you have disappointed with MS/WP..
    In the matter of Delay in Updates..? Which Mobile Platform is giving you regular updates like this
    Just think that.
    Before making those comments, think about pros made by MS

    If you don't like Microsoft, thats over. No need of commenting here. This thread discuss about Microsoft Windows Phone & WP9

    I think its pretty safe to say the Snapdragon 800 devices will get the next major update, considering its still further along than even newer midrange devices, technology and ability wise.

    You're mixing Windows 9 with Windows PHONE 9. Windows PHONE 9 will come to all WP8 devices free of charge. Mobile Phones.

    If Microsoft charges for something, that'll be WINDOWS 9 for the PCs. Separate things, even though they may end up all coming under the "Windows" branding. If Microsoft dared to charge for upgrades on Windows PHONE, they'd be in an even bigger mess than they'll be once the "Nokia" logo disappears from phones.
