The Android-powered iteration of the Alcatel One Touch Fierce XL has already beenannounced by T-Mobile and MetroPCS, but we’re still waiting for the Windows 10 running version of the same device to become official.
That’s probably going to happen soon, however, as a new rumor today claims T-Mobile will launch the Windows variant too. This will be the magenta carrier’s first smartphone running Windows 10 Mobile. TMo will offer the handset in cyan, a color perhaps more reminiscent of Lumia devices of old.
The Windows 10 iteration of the Alcatel One Touch Fierce XL will have a 5.5-inch 720p touchscreen, an 8 MP rear camera, a 2 MP selfie shooter, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 210 SoC powering things, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of expandable storage, support for VoLTE and Wi-Fi Calling 2.0, capacitive buttons, and a non-removable 2,500 mAh battery.
So it’s definitely in the lower-midrange segment. It’s apparently going to become available from T-Mobile “in the coming weeks”, and you should be able to buy one for less than $100 sans contract. The Fierce XL could be just the first of many Windows 10 Mobile devices to launch at T-Mobile, because the carrier has set up an extensive training guide on Microsoft’s new OS for employees to take advantage of.[“source-blogherald”]
