T-Mobile will reportedly begin selling the Alcatel Idol 4S Windows phone on November 10

According to a new report from Windows Central, Alcatel will be launching its long-rumored Windows 10 Mobile device on November 10. The Idol 4S will be priced at $469.99 on T-Mobile, and that model will be locked to the carrier.

The device will feature everything that you'd expect from a Windows phone, including a Snapdragon 820 chipset, a 21MP rear camera, an 8MP front camera, a 5.5-inch 1080p AMOLED display, 64GB of storage (expandable), and 4GB RAM. It should also be bundled with a VR headset, although it's not clear what VR content there will be for Windows 10 Mobile.

The Idol 4S will be the second Windows phone to launch with Qualcomm's 2016 flagship chipset, the first being the HP Elite x3; however, the Elite x3 is squarely aimed at businesses, while the Idol 4S will have more of a consumer focus. It's also significantly cheaper than HP's $699 price tag.

The report notes that it's unknown if there will be an unlocked variant of the device. It doesn't seem likely, however, since Alcatel's last Windows phone - the Fierce XL - was exclusive to T-Mobile.
