  • Alcatel Revamps Its Smartphones with Supersized Screens

The smartphone list includes Alcatel 5, 1X, 3, 3X and 3V while the tablets are the Alcatel 1T 7 and 1T 10. On the software side, this device is running Android 8.1 Oreo (Go edition). Under the hood, MediaTek MT6739 quad-core SoC paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. While Alcatel is known for offering low-priced smartphones in the Western markets, the company also launched a few devices in the Indian market. The Alcatel 3V is equipped with a 6-inch IPS display, MediaTek MT8735A processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB/32GB expandable internal storage, dual 12MP and 8MP rear cameras powered by a 3000mAh battery.

This device also has an 18:9 aspect ratio with an HD+ resolution (1440×720 pixels). The 1T 7 and the 1T 10 are both budget oriented low-end tablets with a quad-core processor in each.

While Alcatel has loaded its new entry level tablets - the Alcatel 1T 7 and Alcatel 1T 10 with Android 8.1 Oreo, the Alcatel 5 runs Android Nougat. In addition, The Verge also reports that some models of the 1X will reportedly come with Alcatel's "Face Key" facial recognition technology instead of a fingerprint sensor, which you shouldn't expect it to work as sophisticated as Apple's Face ID.

Finally, the Alcatel 1 Series, which features the model 1X. The tablet also has a rear-facing 5-megapixel camera sensor and a 5-megapixel front camera sensor.

The most affordable entry from Alcatel this MWC, the Alcatel 1X isn't just a budget device, but it runs on Android Go, a lite version of Android 8 Oreo that's created to operate on smartphones with 1GB RAM or lesser. There's a microSD card slot, but there's only 16GB of internal space.

The Alcatel 1X features a 5.3-inch 960×480 pixel display with an 18:9 aspect ratio.

Alongside that, there's the Alcatel 3-series. The Alcatel 3 and 3X will be hitting the market in March and April, while the Alcatel 3V will be available in select markets starting today. Just like the 1x, the phone also includes 16GB of internal memory that can be expanded, though in this case up to 128GB. Again, what gives? Pricing is €100 for the single SIM version and €110 for the dual one - about $123 and $135, respectively.

The Alcatel 3X offers a smaller 5.7 inch screen with 720p+ resolution, a 3000 mAh battery, dual camera (13+5 MP), 5 MP selfie camera, Android Nougat OS and quad core MT6739 quad core processor. Connectivity options include 147.5 x 70.6 x 9.15 mm and 151 grams. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details!
