Microsoft will roll out Windows 10 Mobile Creators update starting April 25, and if a new report is to believed, the list of devices eligible to receive the update is disheartening.

Here's the list of 13 devices expected to receive Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update:
  • Alcatel IDOL 4S
  • Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL
  • HP Elite x3
  • Lenovo Softbank 503LV

  • Microsoft Lumia 550
  • Microsoft Lumia 640 / 640XL
  • Microsoft Lumia 650
  • Microsoft Lumia 950 / 950 XL
  • Trinity NuAns Neo
  • VAIO VPB051
Microsoft is yet to officially reveal the list of devices to get the update, but it said ZDNet that not all devices will be updated to Windows 10 Creators Update. 

It issued the following statement "Beginning this month, Microsoft will release the Creators Update for Windows 10 customers including those using Windows 10 Mobile. As has been the case with pervious Windows updates, a device may not be able to receive the Creators Update if the device hardware is incompatible, lacking current drivers, or otherwise outside of the Original Equipment Manufacturer's ('OEM') support period. These devices will continue to receive security and servicing fixes according to our OS support policy. The full list of supported devices will be posted on the Product Lifecycle page soon."
