Alcatel Idol 4S with Windows 10 flagship not coming to Europe
The Idol 4S will be exclusive to T-Mobile, so no other carrier in the United States will offer it, at least for time. Along with the smartphone, Alcatel will also bundle a free VR headset compatible with the Idol 4S.
Unfortunately, the Idol 4S will be a very hard to come by smartphone since Alcatel confirmed that it has no plans to launch the Windows-based handset in Europe.
That's quite weird since Europe has the largest amount of Windows Phone users, even though that slipped to one digit numbers in the last couple of months. According to Alcatel, “this model is not intended for Europe,” so there might be another Windows 10 Mobile handset specifically designed for other regions.
Although this seems a bit far-fetched, it would make sense for Alcatel to introduce a high-end Windows 10 handset in Europe, if they plan to sell the phone at all. The Idol 4S is a great device on paper, as Alcatel included a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 CPU inside, along with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage.
On top of that, the Windows 10-powered flagship sports a 5.5-inch display that supports full HD (1080p) resolution, and packs a 21-megapixel rear-facing camera. The Idol 4S has a fingerprint scanner as well and a decent 3,000 mAh battery under the hood.
