  • Alcatel Revamps Its Smartphones with Supersized Screens

This year, Alcatel brought a bevy of new mobile devices to show off. The company added five new smartphones and two tablets to its portfolio.

The Alcatel 3 comes with a 5.5-inch, FullView 18:9 IPS display, Face Key unlock and boasts both a fingerprint sensor and a sleek 2.5D contoured edge glass body.

From the first Android Go Alcatel 1X phone up to the classy and smart Alcatel 5, the company is offering the latest design trends in the market for less. Priced at Euro 229.99, the smartphone has a near bezel-less display on sides and bottom.

The Alcatel 3 has Android Oreo OS, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB of internal memory, 3000 mAh battery, 13 megapixel rear camera with f2.0 aperture and image stablisation and 1.12µm, and a 5 MP front camera with a flash light. Only some models have two SIM slots, and for some odd reason, select versions don't have a fingerprint sensor.

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. 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 Alcatel 5 is the first ever smartphone in the new Alcatel 5 series announced today.


Talking about the cameras, there is a 13MP + 5MP autofocus dual rear cameras and a 5MP fixed focus single front camera.

Alcatel say that the 2K (2160x1080) resolution display here will make the 3V the best option for those seeking more "immersive viewing" experiences. Up front, there are also dual-cameras.

The handset comes in two variants: either 32GB of internal storage with 3GB of RAM or 16GB of internal storage and 2GB of RAM. It also has a face scanning and unlock feature.

Every Alcatel 3 Series device features a 3,000mAh battery. On the software side, this device is running Android 8.1 Oreo (Go edition). The new tablets, dubbed the Alcatel 1T 10 and Alcatel 1T 7, run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box and come with a proprietary Kids mode. The standard Alcatel 3 features a 5.5-inch 1440×720 pixel display with an 18:9 aspect ratio.

TCL Communication has provided 16GB of onboard storage on the Alcatel 1T 10 that is expandable via microSD card (up to 128GB). Under the hood, it features a MediaTek MT6739 quad-core SoC with 32GB of storage and is running Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box. It is also dust and water resistant. The Alcatel 1T 7 is priced at $70 (approximately Rs 5,600) while the 1T 10 costs $100 (approximately Rs 7,900).

You might even be disappointed to find out that the Alcatel 5 only has one camera on its back, though it's a serviceable 13 megapixel f/2.0 PDAF shooter.
