When it comes to Windows based smartphones. The platform is most appreciated in the European markets only. Compared to the American market, where the platform isn’t as popular as Android or iOS. Even though that was the case Alcatel still launched their Windows based smartphone exclusively in US.
Well it looks like now Alcatel is finally looking at what the European market have to offer. As Alcatel has just announced a Windows based smartphone named Idol 4 Pro for the European market. The smartphone is basically the Idol 4s with a re-branded name. Where in terms of specs the smartphone comes equipped with a 5.5 inch display. That supports a resolution of 1920 x 1080. There is also a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 running under the hood. That is coupled with 4 GB RAM and 64 GB of on board storage.
There is also a high resolution 21 MP camera on the back of the smartphone. While at the front the Alcatel Idol 4 Pro comes equipped with an 8 MP shooter. Where to power it all a 3000mAh battery is present. The Windows based Alcatel Idol 4 Pro will go for a price tag of £419.99 or €479.99, respectively. Though users who are interested in getting one now can pre-order now from Microsoft store. Though the smartphone will be available for purchase starting the 28th of July, 2017.
The Alcatel Idol 4 Pro does offers a slightly old processor. But that shouldn’t be a problem when it comes to daily performance.
