Keeping true to its word, Alcatel is indeed bringing its Windows 10 Mobile toting Idol to Europe, but we'll have to wait until June, and it won't be the Idol 4S with Windows 10. Well, it will, but it'll be called the Idol 4 Pro for the European market instead.
The Idol 4 Pro will be the same exact phone we already know and love, but with a less clunky sounding full moniker. That means a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage with microSD expansion, a 21MP rear camera and a fingerprint scanner for Windows Hello.
It won't come cheap, though, with the price set to be 599 Euros when it does go on sale. That's still cheaper than the Elite x3, and it's still a high-end smartphone, but prices will no doubt come down eventually.
In the absence of anything from Microsoft, or anyone else really, it is at least another good option for Windows mobile fans in Europe.
