Alcatel’s upcoming Windows 10 Mobile superphone is getting a new name. Previously, we reported that the company’s Windows Phone flagship will be called the Idol 4 Pro and Idol Pro 4. However, as it turns out, Alcatel is giving the device a new name: the Idol 4S with Windows 10. For those who don’t know, the Idol 4S is an Android smartphone from Alcatel which will soon have its Windows 10 variant, too.

As for the specs, Alcatel is providing a lot more power in the Idol 4S with Windows 10 device when compared to the Android variant. The device will pack the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, a 5.5-inch Full HD display, Continuum support, and more:

  • 5.5-inch Full HD
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon 820
  • 4GB of RAM
  • 64GB internal storage
  • 21MP rear camera
  • 8MP front camera
  • Continuum for phone support
  • 3000 mAh battery
  • Coming to T-Mobile in the US

Considering the fact that Alcatel already renamed the device a few times, we suspect the final name for the device could be something else. Nonetheless, in case you are wondering, the Idol 4S with Windows 10 is still coming to T-Mobile in the United States, so that’s definitely some good news. What do you think of the new name for Alcatel’s superphone? Discuss in the comment section below.
