Pre-Order Premium Alcatel Idol 4S VR Bundle July 15

...

The Alcatel Idol 4S first broke cover during Mobile World Congress as an intriguing and premium device with packing that also doubled as a set of virtual reality (VR) goggles. We went hands on with the 4S back then, and were impressed with the svelte glass-and-metal build, high-resolution Quad HD display, and focus on VR.

The Idol 4S is now official for the US, and we got a second, more in-depth look at some of its features. Aside from the nice-looking body we saw at MWC, the Idol 4S comes with some solid hardware under the hood.

The device boasts a 5.5-inch 2,560-by-1,440 AMOLED display that will be powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 652 processor clocked at 1.8GHz with 3GB of RAM. It will come with 32GB of internal storage, along with a microSD card slot that should be capable of taking a 200GB SD card with adoptable storage or another SIM card. There's also a 3,000mAh battery, which should be ample for all-day usage.

The camera is a 16-megapixel, rear-facing sensor capable of 4K video capture and 360-degree video capture. It can also shoot micro-videos, which are like GIFs or Snapchat videos, except as part of the native camera app. You'll also find an 8-megapixel selfie camera on the front.

The device will support NFC, have a fingerprint scanner on the back for US customers, and support LTE bands 2/4/5/7/12/17, allowing it to work on GSM carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile. Alcatel also assured us that the device will have VoLTE and band 12 support, available with an update.
