It looks like Alcatel could be announcing a Windows Phone device, called the Idol 4 Pro.
Followers of Mobile World Congress will think that sounds a bit familiar, and it is as Alcatel announced the Idol 4 in Barcelona. The Idol 4 is a decent mid-range Android device, the supposed new Idol 4 Pro is a Windows Phone as illustrated in the picture provided by Evan Blass.

The pro looks similar, if not exactly the same as the Idol 4, if the existence of the Pro proves to be true, we’re not expecting a major difference in design language. The Pro also sports the new Boom Key, Alcatel has introduced in the Idol 4.
Specs wise the Idol 4 Pro will pack a Snapdragon 820, full HD display and continuum support. Pricing and release is of course not knowns as all we know so far is this edited render from Blass. But considering Blass’ form before MWC, we wouldn’t doubt him just yet.
