Alcatel launches Alcatel 5, 3 Series, and Android Go based Alcatel 1X

Alcatel launches Alcatel 5, 3 Series, and Android Go based Alcatel 1X

And finally there's the properly budget devices, with Alcatel using MWC 2018 to announce the Alcatel 1X, a phone that offers more than you might expect its diminutive price tag of $99 to see, with a full view screen, 8 megapixel rear camera, 5 megapixel front camera, and the latest version of Android in a more streamlined experience so it can run on the less impressive hardware a budget phone like the Alcatel 1X may come with. But it does have a 13MP/5MP dual camera setup at the front as well as a 3,000mAh battery and a fingerprint scanner. The camera has features like EIS, Light Trace, Slow motion and Video story.

The phone's rear camera comes in at 13-megapixels, with the front shooter sporting 5-megapixels. There is an LED flash in the front too. It measures 147.50 x 70.60 x 9.15 (height x width x thickness) and weigh 151.00 grams. Connectivity options include Cat.4 LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2, GPS, FM Radio, NFC, and USB Type-C port. It is also the costliest among the lot priced at Euro 229.99.

The Alcatel 1T 7 and Alcatel 1T 10 tablets are one the affordable tablets running Android 8.1 Oreo. It is backed by a MediaTek MT8735A quad-core processor clocked at 1.45GHz and offers 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. A 2 GB RAM model is also there. Again, what gives? Pricing is €100 for the single SIM version and €110 for the dual one - about $123 and $135, respectively.

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. There's a microSD card slot, but there's only 16GB of internal space. The 1T 7 is a 7-inch tablet with 1,024 x 600p IPS display while the 1T 10 features a 10-inch 1,280 x 800p IPS display.

With the new Surface , users will be able to use the device for up to 13.5 hours before they look for a charger. You can also pay $ 1100 and take the model with the same CPU, but with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB of ROM.


Last but not least in the 3-series is the Alcatel 3V, which is priced just a bit higher than the 3X at 190 euros (about RM915) and it's the largest of the lot with a 6-inch 2K 2160×1080 display, along with a 12MP/2MP dual-camera system that's capable of delivering a real-time bokeh effect. There's a slightly inferior quad-core MediaTek processor, as well as a fingerprint sensor on the rear and the same facial recognition features on board.

It is said to be made available immediately in black, blue and gold colours for about Rs 15,000.

All three new phones sport taller displays with an 18:9 aspect ratio as opposed to the more typical 16:9 style. Under the hood, there's a quad-core processor packed with up to 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. Some of the other specifications mentioned are 13MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, 5MP front camera with f/2.4 aperture, 3000mAh battery, dual-SIM support and fingerprint sensor at the back.
