T-mobile officially revealed that Alcatel’s New Idol 4S Smartphone will be the first Windows-powered device to support virtual reality and it would be launched next week. The Alcatel Idol 4S is going to be sold with a low-cost virtual reality headset that enables users to get a taste of VR with their smartphones.
This smartphone also has support for Windows Hello and Continuum features of Windows 10. It comes with a fingerprint sensor that allows for enhanced security of the device and can be hooked up to a monitor, keyboard, and mouse to work as a proper PC using Continuum.
The Windows 10 version of this smartphone has better specifications than its Android counterpart. It’s powered by a Snapdragon 820 processor from Qualcomm coupled with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It also comes with a 5.5 inch full HD display, a microSD card slot, and a 21 megapixel rear camera.
T-Mobile is going to start selling the Alcatel Idol 4S with Windows 10 starting November 10th for $469.99 at full retail.
It’s one of the few devices to support the platform, besides the HP Elite X3 and Microsoft’s scattershot Lumias.
