TCL Communications sub-brand Alcatel is geared up for the launch of three smartphones at the end of this month. The three smartphones are budget segment Alcatel 5, Alcatel 3V, and Alcatel 1X. All the renders of these smartphones were leaked by Evan Blass in November last year.
The Alcatel 5 is a budget segment smartphone with a 5.7-inch display of (1440 x 720 pixels) resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio with very minimum bezels. It is powered by an octa-core MT6750 processor clocked at 1.5 GHz along with Mali-T860 GPU. It is coupled with 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal space. There is a fingerprint sensor at the back for security. It offers a 12 MP camera on the back and features a dual camera setup on the front. The smartphone will run Android 8.0 Oreo and will be backed by a 3,000 mAh battery.
The Alcatel 3V sports a 6-inch display with FHD+ (2160 x 1080 pixels) resolution and an 18:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by a quad-core MediaTek CPU which is coupled with 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal space. There is dual camera setup of 16 MP and 2 MP at the rear which is placed along with a fingerprint sensor.
There is currently not much information on the Alcatel 1X except that it will have a lower resolution than the Alcatel 3V which is likely to be an FHD ( 1920 X 1080 pixels) display. Despite that, it will still be featuring an 18:9 aspect ratio. There is a single camera of unknown resolution with a fingerprint sensor at the rear, and as per speculation, the device could be priced lower than 200$ (Rs 13,000).
The company has announced on their official Twitter handle that the trio will be unveiled to the public on February 24, which is just a day before the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S9 series and two days before the MWC (Mobile World Congress) 2018 event.
