Microsoft has launched some new products today at its event and the company has also talked about some of the new software that it has been working on. It appears that T-Mobile leaked a new Windows 10 VR smartphone while the event was still underway. It posted the product page for the Alcatel Idol 4S with Windows 10 VR and later pulled it when it became apparent that the product page had gone live ahead of schedule.
The handset itself is old. The Alcatel Idol 4S was first released back in July running Android. It was sold in a bundle with a low-cost virtual reality headset. Microsoft appears to have teamed up with Alcatel to create its own version of the Idol 4S that’s powered by Windows 10 Mobile instead.
“The next great frontier of entertainment and information is here, and the Idol 4S is the world’s first Windows-powered smartphone plus VR goggle package,” the product page said, it also revealed that the handset will come with pre-loaded VR games and videos to “expand your reach beyond the screen.”
From the looks of it, this is the same Idol 4S smartphone that was launched earlier this year with one major difference being that it’s powered by Windows 10 Mobile. It seems that the handset will remain bundled with the low-cost VR headset so that Microsoft’s customers can get on the VR bandwagon as well.
The Alcatel Idol 4S with Windows 10 VR was listed as coming soon on the product page so it’s unclear when this handset is going to be formally announced and how much it’s going to cost.
