Alongside today's Windows 10 preview for phones release, it seems as though some devices are actually receiving Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2. The Windows Central tip box is getting filled with reports from community members who have gone through the process to install Windows 10 and ended up with Update 2 arriving first.

While we're still devoid of any official word from Microsoft, Windows 10 guru, Gabe Aul, seems to have indicated that this is the case.

In response to a tweet asking why Update 2 appeared in place of Windows 10, Aul had this to say:

"@danbo2468 Check for updates again once you're on GDR2. You should see the W10 build offered."

We're getting multiple reports of this affecting the Lumia 920, Lumia 1020 and Lumia 1520 at present in various locations. We previously reported that Microsoft would officially be pushing out Update 2 at some point this year for the Lumia 735 and Lumia 830 in particular, but this latest development certainly came out of left field.

Are you getting Update 2 first? And are you keeping it or pushing on to Windows 10? Let us know in the comments below or head over to the Windows Central Forums!

Update: We're now seeing this for ourselves on the Lumia 830!

Thanks to everyone who tipped us!
