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.

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.

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.
