Alcatel and Microsoft promised to launch a Windows 10 Mobile-powered smartphone in Europe on July 26, but that obviously didn’t happen. By looking at Microsoft’s Germany and France websites, we can clearly see that the Idol 4 Pro is now expected to launch on July 31.

Other countries such as the UK will get the phone even later, on August 7. There is currently no information on exactly why Microsoft and Alcatel pushed back the European launch of the handset, but let’s hope there will not be any further delays.
