Windows 11 can run on the OnePlus 6T, Xiaomi Mi 8, the Lumia 950 XL and more, users have found. Microsoft’s upcoming operating system will be released to the public later this year, but the Insider Preview has been made available to those who participate in the program. In addition to the regular insider build for Windows 11, an ARM64 version of the operating system has also surfaced online, which some developers have been able to run on select smartphones.
OnePlus 6T and the Mi 8 are the latest smartphone models with Windows 11. The team of developers behind the Renegade Project was able to build Windows 11 ARM64 on the OnePlus 6T, as seen in a video from edi194 on YouTube. The developers were able to get the touchscreen and USB port to work on this setup, along with the CPU, Bluetooth, and partially the GPU. Plus, they’ve tested quite a few games on it, including Counter Strike: Global Offensive, GTA IV, Mafia, Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012), Terraria, and more.
A few days ago, some developers also successfully ported Windows 11 to the Mi 8, but the touchscreen and USB port didn’t work on this installation. A video showing the installation process on the Mi 8 was posted on the Chinese video-sharing website Bilibili and it was spotted by Realmicentral. Around the same time, Reddit user theSPEEDCAT posted a few images of Windows 11 on a Raspberry Pi 4. Additionally, an engineering student named Gustave Monce posted shared on Twitter a video showing Windows 11 running on the Microsoft Lumia 950 XL smartphone with a working touchscreen.
Both the OnePlus 6T and Mi 8 are powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, while the Lumia 950 XL is powered by the Snapdragon 810 SoC. This ARM64 build of Windows 11 is designed to work on ARM-based devices like the Surface Pro X, and with some tinkering and tweaking, developers have been able to port the OS to other ARM-based devices with Qualcomm SoCs.
