Windows Latest reported that Windows 10 Mobile platform devices have been discontinued, but the existing Windows Phone is still powerful enough to test the new features of Windows 10 ARM, including x64 application emulation.

As early as 2019, there were reports that x64 emulation will appear in Windows 10 ARM, but the time has been delayed. In November of this year, Microsoft confirmed that x64 emulation will eventually be included in the next version of Windows 10, which is expected to be officially launched in the spring of 2021.

Windows 10 ARM was first announced in 2016, and it initially supported simulation to run x86 applications. At that time, there was no immediate plan to support x64 applications, but as more and more users hope that Microsoft will solve the “application gap” in the Windows Store, x64 application emulation has finally arrived in Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 21277.

After the release of this preview update, independent developer ADeltaX has now successfully run on old Lumia devices through the emulated x64 desktop application in Windows 10 ARM.

Before this passionate Windows Phone community, they modified Microsoft mobile devices to run the full version of Windows 10, such as Windows 8 and Windows 10 ARM.

Naijatechnews is informed that Windows 10 ARM x64 emulation is their latest project. As you can see from the screenshots, AutoCAD 2021 (x64) desktop applications can be run through simulation, and it also supports landscape mode .

The desktop applications on Windows Phones look pretty good, and they are also very useful, but this is not a practical solution. This is because a smaller area in the desktop program cannot be accessed using the smartphone touch screen.

However, it is good to see developers accomplish such a feat, and in the near future, Windows 10 ARM may also come to Android phones.

This is all thanks to Windows 10 ARM, which has been optimized for ARM-based processors such as Samsung Exynos and Qualcomm Snapdragon.
