Alcatel wants to bring iPad-like features at an insanely low cost

Alcatel Revamps Its Smartphones with Supersized Screens

The Alcatel 1X is the new entry level model for Australia, featuring a 5.3-inch 480p display, a quad core processor, 16GB of storage and an 8MP rear camera. One of them is the world's first smartphone to run on Android Oreo Go Edition.

For those who don't know Alcatel, it's a company known for releasing very cheap but passable smartphones, but in recent years, it's been trying to make them more appealing.

The phone's rear camera comes in at 13-megapixels, with the front shooter sporting 5-megapixels. The device is equipped with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.

This device also has an 18:9 aspect ratio with an HD+ resolution (1440×720 pixels).

The Alcatel 1T tablets will be available in both 7-inch and 10-inch IPS display, the quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB (IT 10)/8GB (IT7).

If you're looking for a new tablet that you can toss around the house, Alcatel has lobbed a couple of options your way: the Alcatel 1T 10 and 1T 7. Under the hood is the 1.5GHz MediaTek MTK6750 octa-core processor coupled with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. It includes facial recognition, a fingerprint sensor, the social photography features in the higher-end Alcatel 5 and, most importantly, one of the few 18:9 screens in a phone this price. The Alcatel 3 will be available starting March at a price of 149.99 euros (approximately Rs 11,900). Up front, there's a dual-camera setup with a combination of 13-megapixel+5-megapixel sensors which is complemented with a front flash.

Greitens releases statement following indictment
Soon after the affair began, the woman's husband secretly recorded a conversation in which she described the alleged incident. At the center of the charges against the governor is a nude photo that Greitens took of the woman during a visit to his St.

The Alcatel 5 is priced at 220 Euros (~$270) and will come in Metallic Gold and Metallic Black.

The Alcatel 1T 7 costs just €70 in Europe, while the larger 10-inch model costs around €100. Nearly all fingerprint sensors can store up to five fingerprints at maximum. There's no mention if it will be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo. It runs on the latest Android 8.0 Oreo and is backed by the same 3,000mAh battery.

1X Alcatel thickness exceeded 9 mm, and the cell phone has a plastic housing and therefore weighs only 130 grams.

At the end of 2017, the Internet giant Google promised that in the first quarter of 2018 will see the light of the world's first smartphone based on the new Android OS Go. At the top end is the 3V, which sports a 6-inch 2K resolution screen, with a dual camera setup that's created to take portrait mode style shots. A powerful 2460mAh battery supplies the required power.

The local pricing and availability of all these devices will be revealed at a later date.
