    One would think they already have production ramped up in anticipation of RS1 release which if rumors were true was the time frame of it's supposed unveiling. If all the hints and leaks are also true, and the phone looks the same as its lesser powered Android cousin, the Idol Pro 4 may well become the best selling Windows phone of all time. It has a Galaxy S6 ish look to it, all the same internals as the rest of the flagships that run Android, and price wise will most likely line up with the One Plus 3, and the ZTE Axon 7 : $400.00 US So that's a Snapdragon 820, 4 Gigabytes of ram, most likely 32 internal storage augmented by an SD card occupying the second sim slot. Will they include the HiFi audio as well? 2 front facing speakers to take on the HP Elite X3. HP is asking too much for their phone IMO. I hope they announce it at least by September 4th, my birthday is the 3rd, and Its either the Idol pro 4 or the 950 XL.
    If it's priced the same as the OnePlus 3, then i'd rather get the one plus 3. I'm also looking at the OnePlus 2 and Xiaomi mi5 as windows 10 roms are supposed to drop for these phones as well.

    One of them will be my next phone... Just don't know which one yet :)

    I didnt know the MS was dropping ROMS for the OP3. As for the OP2, the camera sucks and theres no NFC and if contactless payments pick up some steam on the platform, that would help pick up some new users. Where did you hear that ROMS were coming to the One series? and does the Mi5 have support for T-mobiles network?

    (Never mind I found it on XDA and a simple web search.....duh....guess I might get the OP3 then)

    Cheers!

    Does anybody expect an announcement soon? The fact that they haven't mentioned anything about this phone officially is getting frustrating.

    Personally I'm not going to expect anything on this. Yes I hope it's released as I think I'd like this one. In my thinking maybe Sept/Oct. Just hoping.

    Alcatel has had some good audio on some of their idol phones.. And has been trying to compete with the bigger companies in the flagship market. Hope this one turns out good quality and at a good price !

    JBL speakers if it retains the same DNA from the Idol 4s. The DAC is listed as an Asahi Kasei AK4375 32 bit 2ch DAC along with an NX9890 amp from the info I could find. Whether this finds its way into the Idol Pro 4 is just speculation but it would be a beast though and would easily equal any Android phone out at the moment. Now, if they would add 4 axis OIS along with Microsoft's triple RGB flash from the 950XL then it would truly be a beast. Of course I'm dreaming. Ooh, add water proofing like the Galaxy series.

    I hope Alcatel hurries up a little on their decision with the Pro Windows model. Elite x3 just went on preorder and this Alcatel is more of the consumer model I'd look for.

    on gsm-specs.com there is another specs listing with the same details...was only curious what others might think. You are probably right in your initial judgement, of that first site. I am not familiar with either of these sites.

    This has been up for a while, I saw the same website back in the beginning of August but could verify the authenticity of the information so just left it alone and hoped for the best. I'm sure we'll all find out soon.

    I hope so. It would be a great alternative to the Smartphones we have now.

    I was on the phone with the Magenta Morons yesterday for an unrelated issue and I asked them about this phone. They have a sheet with upcoming devices and all they have is the iPhone 7 and the Gear S3 on the horizon. It's safe to say September is a no go. Maybe, just maybe, they're keeping an eye out for reaction to the Elite X3. If that's the case, we'll be waiting even longer since HP has delayed shipments until Sept. 26.

    The new iphone always causes a lot of hype. Probably why Google has chosen October every year for their previously branded Nexus devices...

    I'm really curious to see if this is priced higher than the Android version that ships in the VR box.

    Lot's of the usual foot dragging that Micromobile fans have to put up with concerning these hardware releases.
    Never a surprise when it comes to the wait times for new phones running Windows.

    It's almost like nobody cares outside the fellowship of MS Mobile :(

    Ya, that could be the norm for a little longer. Seems OEMs other than Microsoft themselves are venturing into uncharted areas with W10M on their newer hardware.
