Alcatel Idol 4 Pro flagship with Windows 10 Mobile revealed in live photos

Alcatel Idol 4 Pro flagship with Windows 10 Mobile revealed in live photos
The last high-end smartphone powered by Windows Phone, the HP Elite x3 has already been released in the United States and it's about to make its debut in some European countries as well.

Even though the Windows Phone market share crumbled under 1% worldwide, there are still companies interested in bringing to consumers smartphones powered by Microsoft's OS.

Alcatel is one of the few companies that seems to continue to be interested in Windows Phone, which is why we will probably see a competitor for HP's Elite x3 on the market very soon.

While this isn't the first time we talk about Alcatel Idol 4 Pro, the upcoming Windows Phone flagship, it might be the first time we see the phone in live pictures. If these photos are legit, it's very possible that Alcatel will announce the Idol 4 Pro sooner than we think.

The Idol 4 Pro is a real monster when it comes to specs. The flagship is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor clocked at 2.1GHz. It also packs 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, but users will be able to expand internal memory via microSD.

The 21-megapixel rear-facing camera is said to feature a Sony IMX230 sensor, so expect some advanced features to be included as well.



Since this is a flagship smartphone with enough power to support Continuum for phones, Windows Phone fans can expect to get this option too. There's no word on battery yet, but we do know it will sport a 5.5-inch display, which, surprisingly, supports full HD (1080p) resolution instead of Quad HD (2560 x 1440 pixels).

According to sources familiar with Alcatel's plans, the Idol 4 Pro will ship with Windows 10 Mobile Anniversary Update onboard, so there's no need to download it afterwards.

Alcatel Idol 4 Pro is likely to make its debut in the US via T-Mobile, but the exact release date is a mystery for the moment.
