Windows 10-based Alcatel Idol 4 Pro leaks out, resembles the Idol 4S

Alcatel is seemingly getting ready to release a new Windows 10 handset called Idol Pro 4. It was last month when we first heard of this device - which, according to rumors, is supposed to be a Windows "superphone" with support for Continuum - and now we can actually take a look at it, despite the fact that Alcatel has yet to announce it.

Evan Blass (aka @evleaks) suggests that the Idol 4 Pro is nothing more than a Windows 10 variant of the Alcatel Idol 4S - an Android Marshmallow smartphone that was officially unveiled at MWC 2016. As you can see (click on the image on the left to zoom in) the Idol 4 Pro does resemble the Idol 4S a lot, apparently being made out of metal and glass, and featuring a front-facing camera with LED flash. However, at the moment, we don't know if the devices' specs are similar.

While the Idol 4S sports a 5.5-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display and is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 processor, we heard that the Idol 4 Pro would feature a 1080p display and Qualcomm's high-end Snapdragon 820 processor. Of course, for now, we can't be sure of anything.

Assuming that it's going to be launched in the near future, the Idol 4 Pro will become Alcatel's second Windows 10 handset, after the affordable OneTouch Fierce XL (which is currently available from T-Mobile for $139.99 off contract).

Would you be interested in buying this Alcatel-made Windows 10 smartphone?
