Highlights

  • The smartphone is powered by the Snapdragon 820 SoC
  • The Alcatel Idol 4 Pro runs on Windows 10 Mobile

While many critics question the existence of Windows in the software ecosystem, some OEMs are still showing belief in Microsoft’s mobile OS and continue to release new smartphones running Microsoft’s mobile OS. Alcatel is one such manufacturer, and it has released the Alcatel Idol 4 Pro running on Windows 10 Mobile OS. The smartphone is up for pre-order in Europe at a price of GBP 419.99 (roughly Rs. 35,300).

Available via the Microsoft online store, the Alcatel Idol 4 Pro is nothing but the Alcatel Idol 4S that launched last year, with the only difference being the operating system. While the former runs on Windows 10 Mobile, the latter is Android-based. To add to the confusion, you also have an Alcatel Idol 4S Windows 10 Mobile variant retailing in the US as well, which was launched via T-Mobile last year in November.

Design-wise, the Alcatel Idol 4 Pro looks similar to the Idol 4S with the metal frame, the fingerprint scanner at the back. It has been made available for pre-order in Gold colour option only. The Alcatel Idol 4 Pro features a 5.5-inch full-HD (1080x1920 pixels) AMOLED display, and is powered by a Snapdragon 820 quad-core chipset paired with Adreno 530 GPU and 4GB RAM. The storage include is 64GB, and it can be further expanded using the microSD slot (up to 512GB).

The dual-SIM, Windows 10 Mobile-based Alcatel Idol 4 Pro sports a 21-megapixel rear camera with touch focus and dual-LED flash. To recap, the Android variant sports a 16-megapixel rear camera. At the front, there is an 8-megapixel selfie camera with real-time face beautification and LED flash.

The Idol 4 Pro smartphone measures 153.9x75.4x6.99mm, weighs 152 grams, and is backed by a 3000mAh battery, which is rated to charge within 95 minutes via the Quick Charge version 2.0. It is also claimed to offer 20 hours of talk time and 420 hours of standby time.

Connectivity options on the Alcatel Idol 4 Pro include 4G LTE (Cat 6.), Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Wi-Fi Direct, NFC, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS and USB Type-C port (OTG support). Sensors on board include accelerometer, proximity, light, e-compass, gyroscope, and hall switch.
