Alcatel Idol 4S with Windows 10 packaging reportedly leaked, with VR headset
An image leak reportedly shows the packaging for the upcoming Alcatel Idol 4S with Windows 10, which may be the final name for the Windows 10 Mobile smartphone previously known as the Alcatel Idol 4 Pro. The packaging shows both the T-Mobile logo and that it will include a VR headset.
The image leak was posted by Windfuture.de's Roland Quandt on his Twitter account (via MSPU):

If accurate, the packaging leak would seem to confirm previous rumors about the phone including a VR headset. However, it also seems to indicate that Alcatel will use a familiar branding for the phone, as the Idol 4S with Android has already been released. The Alcatel Idol 4S with Windows 10 is rumored to include a 5.5-inch display, along with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. There is still no word on a release date or price from T-Mobile.

But they most likely worked with MS, so who knows what will be available in the future.
We had fingerprint scanners on laptops for example long before Windows Hello came along. Infact HP's software had more features than Hello
Hope you reported the problems.
I too was surprised that the Droid one was Qualcomm 652, 3GB and 16MP cam.
This W10 version is rumored to have Qualcomm 820, 4GB and 21MP cam? I have hard time believing that an identically numbered device woudl hve totally different specs. Something doesn't add up here.
Has Alcatel done this before?
Snapdragon 821 is out and we r getting 820
Fine Probably my next device if i win the giveaway hosted by windowscentral :D Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
or did you just wanna complain about THE Youtube app?
With depressing news about app exits and graveyard mood at this forum as a result, this was like a shot in the arm. I don't care at all about the VR capability, but I do like the fingerprint scanner for Hello support at last.
If this undercuts current Lumia 950 price, I may postpone my switch to iPhone.
I see that teh Droid brother costs $350, so this phone cannot cost more than $400. It better not...
Even if it isn't, you could get an adapter.
See the discussion about the camera tests from yesterday. One member talked about using the adapter for his 1020 to use a nano sim in it
