Alcatel Idol 4S with Windows 10 Mobile headed to Germany in July

The Alcatel Idol 4S with Windows 10 Mobile has been on the market in the U.S. for some time, but it sounds like those in Germany will be able to get their hands on one soon, too. As reported by German blog Windows United, the Idol 4S will land in Germany on July 1, albeit as the Idol 4 Pro.

It's curious timing, as T-Mobile stopped selling the Idol 4S here in the U.S. in April. The phone has also been rather limited in its release with very little global reach. That said, the Snapdragon 820-powered phone stands alongside the HP Elite x3 as one of the most powerful Windows phones currently available — though the stable is admittedly pretty small.

It's not clear if the Idol 4 Pro will come with the same VR gear that accompanied the Idol 4S in the U.S., nor is pricing clear. Windows United cites rumors of a €599 price tag, but that would be exceptionally steep, especially after the phone has dipped down into sub-$300 territory elsewhere.

We should know more on the German launch soon, but anyone still interested in the U.S. can pick up the Idol 4S with Windows 10 Mobile for $274 at Amazon.
