Microsoft UK delays launch of the Alcatel IDOL 4 Pro another two weeks

The online Microsoft Store in the United Kingdom has delayed the launch date of Alcatel's upcoming European Windows phone flagship. Originally planned for launch on July 26th, the Microsoft Store product page for the Alcatel IDOL 4 Pro has been silently updated to list August 7th as its new launch date instead.

This means anyone in the UK who pre-ordered the Alcatel IDOL 4 Pro from the online Microsoft Store will have to wait another two weeks before the product ships. It's unclear why the product has been delayed, but it's likely because stock of the IDOL 4 Pro won't be available in the UK for another couple of weeks.

The online Microsoft Store for Germany still lists its release date as July 26th however, so for now it appears the delay is only apparent in the United Kingdom. Did you pre-order the Alcatel IDOL 4 Pro? Let us know!
