Microsoft did confirm the next build for Windows 10 for phones technical preview will bring support for more devices. Unfortunately, we don’t know how long will it take at the moment, but judging by the leaks we’ve seen in the past few days, there’s a possibility that Microsoft may release the new build in the near future.
Not too long ago, a handful of screenshots, surfacing from Chinese shores, showed off a new build for Windows 10 for phones as well as some of the features it will introduce.

Other apparent features includes an improved multitasking manager, better smart dialing in the dialer, ability to select the apps which can access the microphone, improved support for multiple languages in the keyboard, and lots more.
