While Microsoft has big plans to launch Windows 10 on PCs this summer in the US, smartphones may not be a part of it. The company is reportedly going to debut the OS later this year on phones. There is no time line provided as to when Windows 10 will launch on HoloLens, Xbox, and Surface devices.

A report by TheVerge points out that, at the ongoing Microsoft Build Conference taking place at San Francisco, Joe Belfiore, Corporate Vice President, Operating Systems Group at Microsoft explains, “Our phone builds have not been as far along as our PC builds.” He adds, “We’re adapting the phone experiences later than we’re adding the PC experiences.”

It is rather not surprising to see Microsoft launch Windows 10 on phones later than PC. This move confirms that new Lumia hardware will arrive later this year and not at the same time as Windows 10 PCs. Moreover, looking at the past trend, Windows 8.1 for PCs shipped earlier than phones.

Joe Belfiore also adds, that some features will not be available on Windows 10 during launch, but no clarification was given as to which features will be given a miss. One example would be Microsoft’s new Edge browser extension support, which will also arrive after summer.

“We’re in that finishing up phase of the project, and we’re going to continue to get builds out to insiders. We’re on track for this summer, but you should definitely have this notion in mind of Windows as a service,” he added. This would imply that users can expect some super-quick updates along with new apps and features added in a few months after the launch.
