Alcatel Revamps Its Smartphones with Supersized Screens

Alcatel Revamps Its Smartphones with Supersized Screens

They all have quad-core MediaTek processors and facial recognition features (though in all cases, Alcatel isn't using anything as fancy - and likely as reliable - as Apple's Face ID).

The Alcatel 1X runs Android 8.1 and is powered by a 2460mAh. It has RAM, but you can only opt for 1 or 2GB.

Up in front, a 13MP f/2.0 1.4um sensor is paired with another 5MP 120° wide-angle sensor. The device's battery measures in at 3,000mAh. The 6-inch 3V, 5.7-inch 3X and 5.5-inch 3 have numerous same features as the Alcatel 5, such as facial recognition. It will be retailing for Euro 180 and comes with polycarbonate body with metallic painting finish.

All three new phones sport taller displays with an 18:9 aspect ratio as opposed to the more typical 16:9 style.

Note: Some variants of the device are reported to run standard Android Oreo (not the Go edition that is the subject of this article) and have upgraded specs (more megapixels on the camera, increased memory, fingerprint scanner, NFC... etc). It also includes Google Assistant for Android Go. Powered by quad-core 1.3 GHz processor, it comes with a 13MP rear camera and 5MP front-facer.

Fraud at PNB may cost banking sector much more than Rs 11400cr
PNB has also created a unit called "Treasury Division Mumbai " for re-authorization of most messages sent over SWIFT by branches. The external affairs ministry on Friday cancelled the passports of Modi and Choksi in order to force them to return to India.

Rounding out the Alcatel 5′s feature set is a 3,000mAh battery, fingerprint reader, and Android Nougat.

It is said to be made available immediately in black, blue and gold colours for about Rs 15,000. Simply put, Alcatel say the device offers "the best in affordable innovation". The 3, 3X, and 3V cost €150, €180, and €190, respectively - around $185, $222, and $234.

The Alcatel 3V features a 6-inch 2160×1080 pixel display. As seen on the Alcatel 3, the Alcatel 3V also comes with the glossy finish body. 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?

While the rear camera is a 13 megapixel, over on the front Alcatel has provided a combination of 13 and 5, with the bigger camera getting closer while the smaller goes wider, mixing with some software smarts that will jump between the camera when it picks up on more than two faces being shot in the selfie. At the top is a huge bezel which is home to two cameras, a sensor, and a LED flash. The device will be pre-loaded with Android Go edition based on Android 8.1 Oreo. It is the liter version of Android OS that is basically designed for smartphones with entry-level specifications.

The phone will launch in April for €100 for a single-SIM variant and €110 for a dual-SIM variant. It includes a 5MP front and back cameras, 16GB expandable storage, 1GB RAM, quad-core MediaTek MT8321 processor and 4000mAh battery. The phone comes with a 5.30-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 480 pixels by 960 pixels. The interpolation works for the front camera as well, Neowin reports.
