Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL to become T-Mobile's first Windows 10 smartphone

At the moment, AT&T is the only US mobile carrier that's offering a Windows 10 handset (the Microsoft Lumia 950). But this should change soon, as T-Mobile is - as previously rumored - getting ready to launch the Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL.

According to Windows Central, the OneTouch Fierce XL will become T-Mobile's first Windows 10 smartphone, though it's not clear exactly when the device will be launched.

An Android-powered version of the Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL is already available in the US via MetroPCS, which is asking just $69 (off contract, after rebates) for it. We don't know if the Windows 10 variant of the handset will be this cheap, but we're pretty sure that it's not going to be expensive anyway, since the two versions of the device should have similar specs.

Like the Android-based OneTouch Fierce XL, the Windows 10 model will likely sport a 5.5-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, being powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor. Moreover, the new handset is expected to have LTE connectivity, an 8 MP rear camera, 2 MP front-facing camera, 2 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of expandable internal memory.

Although the render seen above suggests that the Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL comes with Windows Hello (Microsoft's biometric-authentication technology), Windows Central reports that this feature is actually not on board.
