While the idol 4 - which was unveiled by Alcatel last month at this year's MWC - is yet to go on sale, rumor mill is already abuzz with a Pro variant of the device. After early specs, now a render image of the latter has leaked online courtesy of tipster @evleaks.

In case you aren't already aware, unlike the standard variant (which is powered by Android), the Idol 4 Pro is said to run Windows 10 Mobile. And as for the newly-leaked image, as @evleaks also notes, the device is quite similar to the Idol 4s (show below) in looks. The latter was also unveiled at MWC 2016.
The Alcatel Idol 4s
Specs-wise, the Alcatel Idol 4 Pro is said to pack in a Snapdragon 820 chipset, feature a 1080p display, and support Continuum. Other key specs, as well as pricing and availability information isn't yet available.
Alcatel Lucent has nothing to do with Alcatel phones, so Nokia neither. Alcatel as a phone brand is owned by Chinese TCL, not by Alcatel Lucent. Alcatel Lucent is all about networks.
Hmm..Nokia bought Alcatel-Lucent and suddenly the quality of phones became better. I wonder if it's just a mere coincidence or Nokia is trying to come back disguised as Alcatel. Because the design of this phone oddly reminds me of my Nokia C7.
Firm evidence, LOL, 3% market share and a crap app store "that no real developer wants to touch with a ten foot pole" is all the evidence needed, spare me please.
