Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL rendered in Windows and Android flavors en route to T-Mobile

In the interest of device manufacturer equality, the most prominent figure in the mobile leaking business has recently started giving phones from smaller brands some pre-release time in the spotlight.

Of course, Alcatel isn’t exactly a high-profile Samsung, Apple, LG or even Huawei rival, but the looming OneTouch Fierce XL deserves a bit of attention, since it’s one of the very few non-Microsoft Windows 10 Mobile products on the horizon.

By no means a flagship, the 5.5-incher was revealed last month to pack a quad-core Snapdragon 210 processor, 2GB RAM, and 4G LTE connectivity, which for the right price, could sell fairly decently. Now, we get to also see the mid-range Win 10 phablet in the flesh, and surprise, surprise, Windows Hello support appears to be integrated.

Alas, what we’re looking at is nothing but a render, and the July 30 date shown on the main screen suggests it’s either really old, or a fake. Or simply poorly executed, with little attention to detail, and ergo, no guarantee of a security-enhancing iris recognition feature present.

Intriguingly, @evleaks managed to obtain an image starring an Android-running Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL version too, and that one seems to hint at a November 30 announcement. We expect to see both the Windows and Android configurations in T-Mobile US stores in December, and outside of the software spectrum, the two will likely be identical twins.
