Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL with Windows 10 Mobile rumored for February 10 launch

Alcatel OneTouch and T-Mobile are still remaining quiet with the Fierce XL with Windows 10 Mobile’s launch date, but according to a new rumor, the device could arrive this week.

A source tells Windows Central that the Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL with Windows 10 Mobile will launch this Wednesday, February 10. As a reminder, T-Mobile has confirmed that its pricing for the Fierce XL with W10M will be set at $0 down, 23 payments of $5.84, and 1 payment of $5.67. Full pricing will be set at $139.99.

This version Fierce XL will run Windows 10 Mobile build 10.0.10586.63 — an Android version was announced last year — with a 5.5-inch 1280×720 display, quad-core Snapdragon 210 processor, 2GB of RAM, an 8-megapixel rear camera, and a 2-megapixel front-facing shooter. It’ll also include 16GB of storage, 10GB of which will be available to the user, and a microSD slot for adding more storage should you want it. The whole package will be powered by a 2500mAh battery.

As of this writing, T-Mobile’s sole Windows phone is pre-owned Lumia 435, so the Fierce XL will provide T-Mo with some much fresher Windows hardware. It’ll also serve as another option for folks shopping for an affordable device.

  • Thank goodness. Been waiting for this one.

    Alex, you were supposed to call me! Wonderful news. Make sure you follow up with where we need to send our money. You know the usual stuff. Will the Stores have it? Walmart? MetroPCS?
    I just hope they don’t repeat the 640 fiasco.
    So thanks again….keep in touch.

    Microsoft needs to release some top end phones instead of these middle of the road specs. If they want people to take them seriously, they need to push their operating system on someone that can make a galaxy S7 clone.

    • Microsoft helped with the phone, but MSFT isn’t the one releasing this. Alcatel is.

    • Steve Griffin

      They did! Lumia 950! Now other OEM’s need to step up and make one.

  • Steven

    I hope that this sells well.

  • Dave

    THEY NEED FANTASY SPORTS APPS!!!!!!!!!!

  • Dave

    That’s the only reason I left my windows phone. They don’t have CBS sportsline baseball fantasy app or many other major fantasy sports capability

        #GalaxyS7 is where it’s at.. #NewKingOnTheBlock

        • Wrong. The #NewKingOnTheBlock is the Acer Liquid Jade Primo for Windows.

        • Steve Griffin

          What is that?

        • The new flagship phone Acer will be releasing soon to the world!

        • William Swartzendruber

          There are something like thirteen third-party phones that will be on the global market by the end of this month.

        • Steve Griffin

          That’s what I like to here! Third parties jumping on the WP bandwagon hopefully will revive the platform.

    • patt

      Remember to buy anything but WP phone.

    • Steve Griffin

      Boy! That’s a reason to leave a better OS!

  • Alex Zapata

    Finally!!!!! A replacement for my 925……

  • JaswinderSinghJammu

    Just bought Blu Vivo XL as an upgrade to Lumia 635. This a few days late.

  • Anthony

    The CPO Lumia 435 is NOT T-Mobiles only Windows phone. T-Mobile sells the Microsoft Lumia 640 brand new in stores and telesales.

    • I don’t see the Lumia 640 listed anywhere on T-Mobile’s site at this moment.

      • Steve Griffin

        Yeah TMo stopped selling the 640 roughly three months after it was released.

        • Ordeith

          ATT still has it, though. And they often sell it for as little as $30 off contract. T-Mobile has never been so kind.

        • Steve Griffin

          Yeah you’re still paying the same amount and more with a two year contract especially if you keep the same phone after it expires. At AT&T you pay more for your bill for the same Tmo.

        • Ordeith

          That was $30 OFF contract. You don’t even need to buy service to get the ATT Lumia 640 for $30. You can buy it and take it to any of ATTs MVNOs for service, some of them with prices lower than T-Mobile, all of them with coverage better than T-Mobile.

  • beachtrax

    Okay then ;)

  • William Swartzendruber

    No no no. This must be a mistake. Windows 10 Mobile is dead, remember?

    • Steve Griffin

      What a lame comment! Just because everyone is practically a follower of the old format of ICONS as an OS doesn’t mean that WP is dead! WP appeals to the creative mind just on the simple fact that you have total control over the desktop where as with Android and IOS you don’t.

      • superg05

        lol ok

      • William Swartzendruber

        It’s called sarcasm, my good man. I am actually building a PDF archive of news stories suggesting that W10M is dead. With OEMs lining up to produce phones on this platform, I think it far from dead.

        • Steve Griffin

          My mistake. Seems like I have to stick up for the little guy once in a while…lol

        • Acdc1a

          Dead is probably not the word…They lined up to build Windows Phone 7 devices too…and they didn’t sell. I want Windows Phone to make it more than most, but I’m still unwilling to give up the creature comforts of Android to support it personally.

        • eanfoso

          My last android was the note 2, and never looked back. What is it that you are afraid of giving up?

        • Acdc1a

          Being able to deposit checks from my phone for one.

        • eanfoso

          Which bank do you use? I can see if it’s in the store.

        • Acdc1a

          Chase…and they gave up app support the middle of last year.

        • Steven

          I can deposit checks to my bank on my Lumia 640, Wells Fargo. What bank you use?

  • Tito

    Has anybody tried the Lumia 950 XL on T mobile?

    • William Swartzendruber

      Why wouldn’t it work? My unlocked 640 LTE Dual-SIM runs just fine.

  • i

    I’m pretty sure it’s gonna be the 10th, along with the LG K7.

  • beachtrax

    I would like to use next JUMP to get this and cancel JUMP altogether. I will be at T-Mobile when they open Wednesday. Of course I will watch here to see if its just online first.

    Cases: It looks like the Android version of this phone uses a similar or even the same case. maybe it will fit this.

  • eanfoso

    Not my cup of tea, waiting for my lumia 1520 to crap out lol
