Alcatel Idol 4S with Windows 10 VR goes official at T-Mobile
The Magenta carrier has already listed the Alcatel Idol 4S with Windows 10 on its website, but customers can't order one yet. The smartphone is now “coming soon” for a price that remains to be determined later on.
Hardware-wise, the Idol 4S is definitely a high-end smartphone. It packs a large 5.5-inch AMOLED display that supports full HD (1080p) resolution and features 2.5D glass finish on the front and back.
On the inside, Alcatel's new Windows 10 handset features a 2.15GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage, expandable via microSD card.
Another major features included is the 21-megapixel rear-facing camera that offers PDAF (phase detection autofocus) and dual-tone flash. There's also a secondary 8-megapixel camera in the front for selfie lovers.
According to T-Mobile, the Alcatel Idol 4S packs a battery that should provide up to 13 hours of talk time or up to 17.5 days of standby time. The smartphone fully supports 4G LTE and comes with USB Type-C port.
As the title says, the Idol 4S ships with Windows 10 Mobile onboard, but T-Mobile also confirms that it's compatible with Continuum as well. Customers who purchase the smartphone will also receive a pair of virtual reality goggles that will allow them to experience rich content like 360 degree movies and games.
