Alcatel 5: an 18:9 phone with hidden intelligence

Alcatel 5: an 18:9 phone with hidden intelligence

That said, the phone does look quite sleek and the specs are sufficiently "low-end" enough with a quad-core MediaTek processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and a 5.3-inch 960 x 480 display and like other Android products it utilizes a Micro USB charging system. Just like the 1x, the phone also includes 16GB of internal memory that can be expanded, though in this case up to 128GB. For selfies, there is a 13MP + 5MP dual fixed focus cameras that offer up to 120-degree FoV. A 3000 mAh battery is there in the phone that comes with Face Unlock feature.

Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth and FM.

Talking about the Alcatel 3, it comes with glossy finish body with curved edges. It will be available in color choices of Spectrum Black, Blue, and Gold.

The Alcatel 1T 7 and Alcatel 1T 10 tablets are one the affordable tablets running Android 8.1 Oreo. It is powered by the same processor as the Alcatel 3 with 3Gb of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Imaging is handled by a 12MP rear facing cameras and a pair of front facing cameras; one 13MP lens and a wide angle 5MP lens. The device's battery measures in at 3,000mAh.

The middle ground of the new lineups includes three phones: the 3, 3X, and 3V, which differ primarily on the size of their display. It will be retailing for Euro 180 and comes with polycarbonate body with metallic painting finish.

As promised at CES, Alcatel showed off five Android phones in Barcelona that sport giant screens with an 18:9 aspect ratio. While the Alcatel 3X comes powered by the same MediaTek MT6739 as seen on the Alcatel 3, this device still runs on older Android Nougat. Simply put, Alcatel say the device offers "the best in affordable innovation".

Alcatel Revamps Its Smartphones with Supersized Screens

The Alcatel 3V costs Euro 190 and is the only smartphone in the Alcatel 3 lineup to offer Full HD+ display.

It's called the Alcatel 3V, and it will find a 6 inch 2160×1080 full view screen in what we think is a metal body, offering two rear cameras that combine the smarts of a 12 megapixel camera and a 2 megapixel camera for soft background images.

Powering the phone is a MediaTek MT6750 SoC, 2GB/3GB of RAM and 16GB/32GB of storage.

There are subtle changes in the different devices of the same series, the 3X and the 3V come with a dual camera setup on the rear and support portrait mode while the 3 doesn't. Both the cameras on the Alcatel 3V are accompanied by the LED flash.

The larger of the slates is, predictably, the most impressive, coming with a 10-inch HD display, 4000mAh battery and (surprisingly) the latest Android 8.1 Oreo operating system. It is the liter version of Android OS that is basically designed for smartphones with entry-level specifications. Again, what gives? Pricing is €100 for the single SIM version and €110 for the dual one - about $123 and $135, respectively. Under the hood, MediaTek MT8735A quad-core SoC paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, which is expandable up to 128GB via microSD card.
