Windows 11 was released as part of the Windows Insider Program and, as you might have guessed, a long race has begun to try to boot the system on a machine other than a computer. There were first successes – the system was launched on the Lumia 950 XL smartphone.
The Lumia 950XL has a 5.7-inch AMOLED display with a Quad HD 2560 resolution of 1440 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor, and 3GB of RAM. The phone first appeared in 2015.
The play was a success for Gustave Muncie, he posted related photos and a YouTube video (you can watch it at the end of the material). The theoretical requirements for Windows 11 are 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of disk space and a dual-core processor.
Of course, Windows 11 is not optimized for such a device – you can see problems with its smooth operation, not to mention probably not working properly. However, the fact that Windows 11 has been able to run on an ARM-engineered machine for several years may mean that Microsoft’s new system can be unofficially ported to other devices.
Windows 11 will appear at the end of this year (maybe in October). The system introduces a new interface, new wallpapers, sounds and appearance of some programs (such as File Explorer), changes to the Start menu, support for Android apps, and greater integration of MS Teams.
