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

TCL Communication who own the Alcatel brand of smartphones are among the first to roll out their new range of smartphones at this year's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and among them are some real bargains. The Alcatel 5 utilizes those five so that you can use each one to launch a different app or service. The smartphone list includes Alcatel 5, 1X, 3, 3X and 3V while the tablets are the Alcatel 1T 7 and 1T 10.

Introducing Alcatel 1X, the first Android Go phone to be announced. Priced at Euro 229.99, the smartphone has a near bezel-less display on sides and bottom. Also included is a 5.7-inch 1440×720 display, a 5MP front-facing camera, quad-core MediaTek MT6739 processor, 2/3GB of RAM, 16/32GB of storage, a microSD card slot, and a 3,000mAh battery. Oh, and for some reason, select versions of the phone don't even come with a fingerprint sensor, so you'll have to rely on Alcatel's "Face Key" identification feature.

The Alcatel 3V will be the mid-range phone in the new lineup, featuring a 6-inch 1080p display, a quad core processor, 16GB to 32GB of expandable storage, and a dual rear camera setup with a main 12MP lens along with a secondary 2MP lens for depth information.

The phones in question are the Alcatel 3, 3X, 3V, 5T and the 1X, all of which are generally cheap smartphones that still come with a little bit of premium for the cost-conscious buyer. The device is one of the few to sport dual front-facing camera lenses - a 13-megapixel primary shooter and a super wide-angle 5-megapixel lens with LED flash. The Android Oreo phone has quad core MediaTek MT8735A chipset, 2 GB RAM, 16/32 GB internal memory, a micro SD card slot and a 3000 mAh battery. Moreover, the smartphone offers face unlocking capability with support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, GLONASS and FM Radio.

Businesses Cut NRA Ties As Pressure Campaign Mounts
Marco Rubio broke with an NRA stance when he announced he would support raising the age from 18 to 21 for "buying a rifle". MetLife insurance terminated discounts that had been offered to NRA members on the gun group's website.

The Alcatel 5 is basically Alcatel's "affordable flagship" device this time around, and to be honest it doesn't look half bad.

In the end, what you're getting is the first presentation of what Android Go can do on low-budget smartphone internals. As for the tablets, Alcatel has launched its 1T 10 and Alcatel 1T 7 tablets, both powered by Android 8.1 Oreo.

The larger of the slates is, predictably, the most impressive, coming with a 10-inch HD display, 4000mAh battery and (surprisingly) the latest Android 8.1 Oreo operating system. The tablet has a quad-core MediaTek MT8321A/D SoC clocked at 1.3GHz, paired with 1GB of RAM. It is also dust and water resistant. Again, what gives? Pricing is €100 for the single SIM version and €110 for the dual one - about $123 and $135, respectively.
