Alcatel Idol 4 Pro with Windows 10 gets delayed once again

The Alcatel Idol 4 Pro saga is not yet over, at least not in the UK where the Windows 10 smartphone should have been already available for purchase.

Although Microsoft and Alcatel promised to bring the device in the UK in the last week of July, the Idol 4 Pro's market release was postponed by two weeks.

Well, it looks like the day of August 7 is about to end and Alcatel Idol 4 Pro isn't yet available for purchase in the UK. In fact, Microsoft delayed the release of the smartphone once again, so those who still want the Windows 10 handset will have to wait three more days.

At least that's what Microsoft UK says on its official store. Since the Alcatel Idol 4 Pro has already hit the shelves in other European countries, we don't doubt that the UK will get the smartphone at some point as well.

Unfortunately, the fact that Microsoft UK confirmed the Alcatel Idol 4 Pro would arrive on August 10 is no guarantee it will happen. So, Windows Phone fans still wanting a flagship handset will have to wait at least three more days to be able to buy the Idol 4 Pro in the UK for £419.99.
