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. While Alcatel is known for offering low-priced smartphones in the Western markets, the company also launched a few devices in the Indian market.
As part of its MWC announcements, Alcatel is also adding to its tablet lineup: the 1T 10 and 1T 7 are affordable tablets running Android 8.1 Oreo, but the company isn't planning to bring them to US anytime soon, if at all.
A 3G variant of the Alcatel 1C was also unveiled, the feature phone will retail for €89.99 and feature in metallic blue, black and gold, from April onwards.
The 1x's processor is an MT6739 Quad-Core 1.28Ghz SoC, with the device's battery coming in at 2,360mAh. The Alcatel 3 comes with a 5.5-inch HD+ display with a resolution of 1440×72- and the 3X comes with a 5.7-inch display with the same HD+ resolution while the 3V comes with a 6-inch 2K resolution. Just like the 1x, the phone also includes 16GB of internal memory that can be expanded, though in this case up to 128GB. 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. Finally, RAM amounts to 2GB, says Alcatel. It also includes 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage. As for the tablets, Alcatel has launched its 1T 10 and Alcatel 1T 7 tablets, both powered by Android 8.1 Oreo. The phone is now available in select markets, in Metallic Black or Metallic Gold, for 229.99 Euro ($283).
The Alcatel 3V costs Euro 190 and is the only smartphone in the Alcatel 3 lineup to offer Full HD+ display. The 7-inch model includes 2,580mAh battery which is claimed to last up to 7 hours while the 10-inch model comes with a 4,000mAh battery which is said to last for up to 8 hours of use. I wouldn't count on that happening since they already command a large share of the market and have things going their way for them to be bothered by geek obsessions like near-stock Android and guaranteed updates but one is allowed to dream, right?
The Alcatel 5 is the top shelf of the brand, packing a 5.7 inch display with no bezel, a premium brushed metallic finish, and dual front facing cameras. The device will be pre-loaded with Android Go edition based on Android 8.1 Oreo. The phone comes with a 5.30-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 480 pixels by 960 pixels. Inside there's a quad-core MediaTek MT8735A processor, 2GB of RAM, 16/32GB of storage, and a microSD card slot. A powerful 2460mAh battery supplies the required power.
