A few months ago we reported about the Wi-fi certification of Alcatel’s alleged flagship Windows 10 smartphone Idol 4 Pro, and since then we haven’t heard much about the device until some leaked photos popped up on WinFuture.
The last powerful Windows phone that sky-rocketed the market was HP Elite x3, which made its debut inUnited States and is now making its way to European countries as well. After the Windows phone market hit a plateau, it is good to see that consumers are still interested in bringing Microsoft’s OS to users in diverse ways. Alcatel, being one of those companies, is busy with their flagship Windows phone Idol 4 Pro, and it will be interesting to see HP Elite x3’s competitor in the market.
Though we have been getting bits and pieces of information about the device for some time, but it is certainly the first time we have come across live pictures of the phone. Though the image quality isn’t exactly top-notch like most phone leaks, but it does give us a good idea about the device model. If these circulating photos are legit, then the release might be happening sooner than we think.
The design shows nothing unique about the phone’s body and looks quite similar to the Idol 4s running Android, at least from the front.
Idol 4 Pro is a real beast when it comes to features and specs.
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 (quad-core, clocked at 2.156Ghz)
- 4GB of RAM
- 64GB of internal storage along with an external card slot
- 21MP rear camera with Sony IMX230 sensor
- Continuum for phones support
- 5-inch Full HD display
- Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary Update
- supports full HD (1080p) resolution
Regrettably, there is no official word on the release or the price of the device yet but the development has been in process for quite some time now. It is likely that Alcatel’s Idol 4Pro will me making its debut in the United States via T-Mobile, but there is nothing official yet. Stay tuned for more updates regarding the phone’s release.
