    Looks like the much rumored Alcatel "SuperPhone" will be coming this summer and is going to appear on T-Mobile in the US. Availability elsewhere is sketchy at this point, but Alcatel has world wide distribution chops.

    So who is chomping at the bit to bring this baby home?

    I'm on T-Mobile so this looks very tempting. Already played around with the Alcatel one touch fierce XL. It's a decent windows phone I find, with that nice large screen.

    Can only hope the quality of the hardware they are offering is of better quality this time around. T-MOBILE needs to have a flagship windows phone in their offerings and this just may be the one to do it.
    What was T-Mobiles' last flagship windows phone? The Nokia Lumia 925 ? That was 3 years ago. T-Mobile is way overdue.

    Anyway, lets hope this is the beginning of more OEMs coming on board and windows finally getting the momentum it needs to grow as a much needed 3rd alternative to iOS and android.

    The render I found for this thread: http://forums.windowscentral.com/alc...-features.html Looks pretty sweet.

    If the quality control matches the specs and the looks...

    I wouldn't mind springing for this baby.
    Wonder if it might be compatible with a DAC?

    I'm betting the audio features will be exemplary on this phone based on Alcatel's past history with the OneTouch Idol3.

    If the render is accurate...

    ...cosmetically at least, it is boasting audio.

    It has a 4 speaker set up top and bottom, front and back of the device. The Idol3 sound wasn't quite up to the HTC M8 but there again it was $500 cheaper! Decent thou.

    I maybe picking up the Android version.

    At the Cricket store (you know the one across from Home Depot) a few weeks ago.

    I had the chance to look over the IDOL3 (Android)
    The sound on that phone impressed me quite a bit.
    It actually had bass and noticeable channel separation.

    Based on this I think Alcatel may offer a similar experience or perhaps better it with hardware running Windows.
    Hope I hope I hope...

    lcatel methodology is to convey great execution at a lower cost point than the most effective gadgets available, for example, the Samsung S arrangement or LG G Series or even the Huawei most recent Mate8. In such manner, both gadgets are fueled by mid-range Qualcomm processors, in particular the Snapdragon 652 with 3GB RAM, 32GB of inner stockpiling for the IDOL 4S and the Snapdragon 617 with 3GB RAM and 16GB stockpiling.

    The capacity can be reached out with a MicroSD card up to 512 GB.

    The client interface was still extremely responsive on both telephones, be that as it may, we have to get the units for a more extended time to know more about the execution for gaming and different exercises.

    I am on T-Mobile, and I would only get this phone if it is available unlocked at the MS Store (or anywhere other than T-Mobile). Their history with Windows phones is horrific. The phone looks sweet though, just hoping for no bigger than a 5.5 inch display.

    The good news is that only firmware touching the radio needs T-Mo approval. All updates to the OS and core Apps comes straight from Microsoft, no Alcatel or T-Mo delay.

    WaaS, FTW.

    I had to abandon WP last summer because my new office gets zero tmobile reception. So I had to get a phone with wifi calling.

    This just might be my way back into the fold.

    If anything requires T-Mobile approval to update then count me out.

    I'm quite sure this takes T-Mo out of the loop. What's going to change about the radio? Nothing in the foreseeable future.

    I've been a very vocal critic of MS execution regarding WM in general, if this phone see's the light of day and is relatively inexpensive, I may buy an unlocked one as well. I recently got a 950XL for free and it was a huge bag of barf, it ran hot a good portion of the time I used it, and the screen got scratched easier than I thought. Anyway, with a great chipset and more ram It
    will be a dandy.

    Yep, seriously. Having to choose between WiFi calling and Win 10 Mobile (I mean with the 640) because of them is just ridiculous, especially that there are various unlocked Android phones that don't have to choose between the latest update and being able to use WiFi calling.

    This thing looks utterly sweet. I wouldn't mind one of these, with a big screen and decent audio quality. I wouldn't even have a clue about where to get on in Australia.

    I bought my L925 through Tmo and even financed it with the no interest financing (not because I needed to, but because I like to use other peoples money interest free!). No problems with the transaction at all.

    Anyone hear anything new on the Idol Pro 4? MY Lumia 950 XL recently got stolen so I need a new WM phone, If I dont hear anything by September 4th I'm ordering a new Lumia 950 XL. I'm using my backup phone which is an LG V10, not a bad phone but my policy is to avoid google as much as possible due to their treatment of WM users. If they would make simple apps like maps, chrome, you tube and Gmail that would go a long way in restoring my faith in Google as a company and their "do no evil" mantra.
