  • Alcatel announces 1T Android tablet ready in 7 or 10-inch form                   By Rei Padla

It will also feature the Google Assistant for Android (Go edition), enabling entry smartphone customers to experience the convenience of the Google Assistant, whether they're asking it questions or telling it things to do.

Alcatel launched its Alcatel 1X smartphone at sub-100 Euro price segment.

After months of rumors and leaks, all the biggest launches at MWC 2018 are done and a long list of smartphones are now official. Jeff Yee, ZTE's vice president of product marketing and strategy, mentioned that Android One is, "Like Pixel but not on Pixel hardware". The smartphone named GM8 features a 5.7-inch HD+ display, 3GB or 4GB of RAM, 32GB or 64GB of storage and a Snapdragon 435 chipset.

In terms of the Alcatel 1X price, it'll cost just €99 (around £90, $120, AU$150) for the single SIM variant and the dual SIM 1X will set you back €109 (around £110, $130, AU$160). Availability begins in April. The company says that the phones running Android Oreo (Go edition) will hit the shelves in early 2018.

HMD said the Nokia 1 will be available globally for $85. Updates on Android phones is still a problem, and one that exists across segments, be it budget or premium phones. To get it on your phone, go to the Beta Labs, sign in/up with your account, input your phone's IMEI, and if it's approved, you should get the update notification for Oreo soon on your device. The 5MP rear camera comes with panorama mode, night mode, and the pro mode, the front camera is also a 5MP camera and has face detection to offer the enhancements.

Speaking about the phone itself, it is a fairly compact device having a 4.5-inch FWVGA display. Sensors on the phone include Accelerometer.


According to the Turkish company, which now operates in 32 countries globally, the GM 8 Go will have a price tag that anyone in these countries can afford.

TCL Communication, the global brand that owns Alcatel, launched a series of smartphones this week at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. Like most of the aforementioned handsets, there isn't much to wow you here.

Today, Lava introduced its first Android Oreo Go smartphone Lava Z50 in India.

RAM, Storage, Battery & Other Features - Nokia 1 smartphone comes with 1GB RAM. the internal storage of the phone is 8GB. You will be then asked to validate your device's IMEI number along with the carrier. Like for example, the Nokia 1. This would ensure that the phone is protected from security threats and users receive the best that Google has to offer before other smartphones on the market. We expect to see more OEMs joining the Android Go bandwagon, mostly Chinese OEMs.

Although we can not guarantee this, our wish is that Xiaomi also comes aboard.
