Interested in trying out the Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview? While it may still be a little rough around the edges for use as a daily driver (though that’s a matter of preference), there’s no harm in spending a few days poking around to see what’s new in the latest build, and that’s just what plenty of Windows Phone users have been up to. Head on over to Microsoft’s device compatibility page for the preview, and you’ll see dozens and dozens of handsets supported – by and large, all of them Lumias. For now, there’s just one exception: last year’s HTC One M8 for Windows, which Microsoft added support for last month. Rumors suggest another non-Lumia phone could be about to join it, and this one might come from HTC, as well.

We’re not sure just how well-supported this rumor might be, but supposedly the old HTC Windows Phone 8X could soon find itself getting access to the Windows 10 preview.

It’s not the craziest idea, as the Windows 10 preview already supports Lumia models from the same timeframe and with similar hardware, but it’s especially interesting to be talking about similar support arriving for a phone that’s both this old and from a third party manufacturer.

Could this mean good things for users hopeful that Windows Phone handsets from additional OEMs may similarly gain access to the preview? We’re not holding our breath, but if there’s any truth to this report, it may be a possibility worth considering.
