Windows 10 Mobile news recap is a weekly feature that highlights the top stories from the previous week. You can keep up to date with all things Windows 10 Mobile by bookmarking our dedicated page.

Acer is touting the new Jade Primo as the first pocket PC phone. During the IFA event last week, Acer unveiled this large 5.5-inch smartphone, which runs Windows 10 Mobile. The device features a Snapdragon 808 processor and a 21MP rear camera! The device was shown off during IFA 2015 and you can watch the video below.

It’s no surprise that we have waited quite some time for a new Windows 10 Mobile build. At the start of the week, Windows Insider boss Gabe Aul admits the next Windows 10 Mobile Insider build has taken “longer than expected” but he does offer an explanation as to why. When a new build is available, it doesn’t go straight to the Fast ring Insiders, instead it goes to an internal Microsoft ring.

You can read our piece here explaining why it takes so long to receive a new Mobile build. In summary, as each build is tested at Microsoft, they inevitably find more issues and the team believe those issues are too critical to let the build out to Fast ring Insiders.

Aul teased a new Windows 10 Mobile build for Friday, September 11th, but it was pulled at the last very minute due to a bug. Fortunately, several lucky Insiders were able to download the build somehow. You can check out our hands-on video of build 10536 below. It shouldnt be long now before Fast ring insiders are able to download this build.
