Devices that are not receiving the Developer Preview update need a firmware update from the manufacturer first.

From the official update wiki:

Note:  If your device is enabled for the update but no new version is made available to you:  There are a small set of devices for which we aren’t offering the latest build of the Developer Preview program due to an identified problem that requires mobile operator or OEM driver updates.  These will be offered when the official update for your phone is available.
