Most Windows 10 Mobile users probably know of the Alcatel Idol 4 Pro that should be available in the United States through T-Mobile. However, the company seems to be looking at a backup plan just in case anything goes wrong with the Windows phone.
In case you didn’t know, the Alcatel Idol 4 Pro is a flagship smartphone that packs the best hardware specs you can expect in a 2016 high-end phone. While the phone is expected to be powered by Windows 10 Mobile, a leaked Geekbench benchmark shows something different in terms of software. Apparently, there is an Alcatel Idol 4 Pro that is also powered by Android 7.0 Nougat.
Whether Alcatel has plans to launch two versions of the same Idol 4 Pro handset or not is still hard to tell at the moment. Another look at this would be to assume that the company has decided to ditch the Windows 10 Mobile version in favor of an Android flavor. Nonetheless, it will still be a welcome move if Alcatel came in with an Android flagship, especially since it is running on the latest version in town.
According to the benchmarks, the upcoming Alcatel Idol 4 Pro packs quite a pretty list of specs. These include a 5.5-inch Full HD display screen with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, a Snapdragon 820 SoC under the hood that is paired with an Adreno 530 GPU and 4GB of RAM. There is a disappointing 16GB of onboard storage, but there should be room for microSD card storage.
As for the cameras, the Alcatel Idol 4 Pro gets a 20MP snapper at the back that comes with a LED flash, autofocus and face detection. It can also record up to 4K videos, but there is no OIS. The front has a 7MP snapper, which should do great when it comes to selfies and video calls.
