Alcatel launched its Idol 4 smartphone in India, around 10 months after it unveiled the model at its pre-MWC 2016 event. The company told us that it chose to skip over the Alcatel 4s, which was showcased along with Idol 4, due to cost-related concerns. The Alcatel Idol 4 has been priced at Rs 16,999 and will be available exclusively from sale on Flipkart. Notably, the Alcatel Idol 4 is identical to Blackberry's DTEK50 smartphone, which was launched last month in India, except for its software and the rear panel, which is glass on Alcatel's phone and rubberised on Blackberry's. Both are manufactured by TCL. The smartphone will be sold in Gold, Dark Grey, and Metal Silver colour variants. At the launch event, we got a chance to spend some hands-on time with the device, and here are our first impressions.
