Leaked renders of the Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL show the upcoming smartphone with both Android and Windows 10 operating systems on board.
Well-known tech leakster, Evan Blass, also known for his @evleaks Twitter handle, recently released a press render of the upcoming Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL, showing two phones that appear similar except for their capacitive buttons, and the operating system displayed on their homescreens.
The previous month, Alcatel confirmed it was developing a Windows 10 smartphone, but declined to reveal details. This weekend, @evleaks revealed a render of the new smartphone carrying two different operating systems.
This is not the first instance the mobile subsidiary of China's TCL Communication has produced a smartphone running different operating systems. During the January CES tradeshow, Alcatel revealed its new PIXI 3 handsets which were compatible with three separate operating systems: Android, Windows, and Firefox.
Reported to be heading exclusively to T-Mobile when it launches, the Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL will be available with an Android and a Windows 10 OS version when they hit the market.
Based on the render, there will be a few physical differences between the version that carries Android and the model that runs Windows 10, such as a home button for the Windows logo and capacitive controls for the Android handset.
Housed in a 5.5-inch frame sporting a 720p display, the handsets will carry a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU supported by 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable internal storage under the hood.
The Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL will feature an 8MP rear camera and a 2MP front facing shooter, as well as LTE connectivity. Both versions of the phone will be powered by a 2,500mAh battery.
While rumors have emerged the Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL is scheduled for its big reveal by December, it is still not known when T-Mobile will start carrying the devices. It may be as early as late December in time for the holiday season, or in early 2016.
