    There's been little to no news updates about this device.
    A number of Windows phone users are wanting to upgrade as soon as possible.

    Do they pick mods out of a hat? (seriously how does one become a mod?...) Anyway Daniel if you read this sub forum please for the love of all that is holy, can you find out an eta on the Idol 4 Pro's release? or if they've dropped the project. So we can all take our bikes and go home.

    I couldn't do it, I had posted that I was getting a ZTE Axon 7 but I couldn't do it. The further I went down that rabbit hole the more problems I found with the UI. Go with what you know I guess, so I broke down and got another 950XL and two Mozo quick charging back covers to go along with it. At least I won't have to invest myself any further into Google's ecosystem. I'll be patient and hope Alcatel will surprise us soon with their new phone.

    I saw an Idol Pro 4 in person yesterday "in the wild". I bumped into a guy who works for Alcatel and had it in hand. I think he was surprised I knew what it was. It looked just like the photos from the WIFI Cert articles with the fingerprint sensor just below the camera. Very nice in person.

    And you didn't get a picture? I'd of pretended to check my phone as the conversation ran down, then snapped a pic or two and run off.

    He's under NDA, not you.

    Apparently MSPoweruser has reported that the Idol Pro 4 has been spotted in the wild again, this time with pictures. The pictures pass the smell test and show the phone as having stereo speakers, and also lists the specs of the phone.

    I read Daniel Rubino's insight to the Elite X3 in his recent article. I wonder if Alcatel is on hold trying to refine fw/drivers in support of the 820 soc or some other optimizations. It was said that the idol 4 pro should ship with the AU OS, so I am hoping software/fw are all it is waiting on. I am waiting for this one to debut before making a decision on settling in on a new WP.

    ^^^ I agree. Outside of the Elite X3... I've not seen a single built for Redstone 1 device come out. Something is holding them back. I would guess optimization based on X3 experiences.

    In MS's upcoming October event since they won't be showing any Surface Phone.
    They should at least put their weight behind the OEM's and showcase the HP Elite X3 and this Alcatel Idol Pro 4

    Looks like it's almost here then:

    T-Mobile (US) Alcatel IDOL 4S with Windows 10 Mobile gets detailed in new training guide | Windows Central

    I wonder if this will be demonstrated at the upcoming Microsoft Event.

    I'm guessing the Fierce XL must be selling at a reasonable rate for them to go forward and bring this one out. If they can produce decent hardware, Alcatel have a chance at claiming the consumer space from the Lumias.

    I'm guessing it'll be just a few weeks not that T-Mobile is training their reps on the phone.

    If T-Mobile had to train their Magenta Monkeys how to sell, or God forbid, how to work a Windows phone it'd be Christmas 2020 before we saw this thing.
