Rumors put Windows 10 Mobile powerhouse Alcatel Idol 4 Pro on T-Mobile
Alcatel has been reinventing itself in 2016 with a hefty and diversified portfolio of mobile products. Low-end phones and tablets came first while several phones are yet to come in Android and Windows 10 Mobile flavors. While we’re focused on the Idol 4 and Idol 4S, we’ve been hearing word of an Idol 4 Mini and an Idol 4 Pro. Evan Blass of VentureBeat has been fielding some leaks on the latter two phones.
He puts apples to apples, comparing the specs he got of the Idol 4 Pro with the like-designed Idol 4S.
|Component||Idol 4 Pro||Idol 4S|
|Screen size||5.5 inches||5.5 inches|
|Display||1920 x 1080||2560 x 1440|
|Pixel density||401 ppi||534 ppi|
|SoC||Qualcomm Snapdragon 820||Qualcomm Snapdragon 652|

|OS||Windows 10 Mobile||Android Marshmallow|
In addition it seems that the Idol 4 Pro has Continuum support as well as a fingerprint sensor on the back.
The Idol 4 Mini would seem to be not so “Mini” as we’re told of the phone’s five-inch screen.
|Screen size||5 inches|
|Resolution||1280 x 720|
|Pixel density||294 ppi|
|SoC||MediaTek MT6738 or MT6750|

There’s a fingerprint scanner embedded in the home button.
No give-ups on pricing and availability just yet, at least from Blass. MSPoweruser is reporting from its sources that the Idol 4 Pro will be on T-Mobile. If fruition comes to these leaks, Alcatel may find itself turn from sleeper cell in the mobile industry to a major grower.
