Today, Microsoft India has made an interesting announcement that offers us more details on the release timeframe for the Windows Phone 8.1 update.

According to Microsoft India, existing Windows Phone 8 users should expect to receive the long-awaited update in the first two weeks of July.

Microsoft has already started to deploy the Windows Phone 8.1 update in Finland and Argentina, but only as pilot. There are no details on Microsoft starting to offer the update in any other country as of yet.

However, there are only a few days left until the beginning of July, so we expect the mass rollout of Windows Phone 8.1 to finally kick off next week.

We will keep an eye out for any additional details on the matter, so stay tuned for more updates on Windows Phone 8.1’s worldwide rollout.
