Alcatel 5 Is Official: A Mixture of Entry-Level, Mid-range & Flagship Specs

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.

Along with the companies new series of smartphones, Alcatel is also releasing two new Android tablets: the 7-inch Alcatel t7 and the 10-inch Alcatel t10.

At the Mobile World Congress, Alcatel unveiled a bunch of new devices, including mid-range smartphones that are highly interesting given the combination of aesthetics and price point. Moreover, the smartphone offers face unlocking capability with support for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, GLONASS and FM Radio. The 1T 7 and the 1T 10 are both budget oriented low-end tablets with a quad-core processor in each. On the front is 5.7-inch HD+ ( 1440 x 720 pixels) IPS display with 18:9 aspect ratio. Just like the 1x, the phone also includes 16GB of internal memory that can be expanded, though in this case up to 128GB.

The devices comes in a few variants, with a choice between 1GB or 2GB RAM, single or dual-SIM, 8MP or 13MP camera, and even the choice between whether or not you want Google Assistant or a fingerprint sensor.

But the Alcatel 3V is the largest and sharpest member of the 2:1 family, with a 6-inch FHD+ panel in tow, while the 5.7-inch HD+ Alcatel 5 has a completely bezel-less chin and dual front-facing camera going for it.

Of particular note with the Alcatel 3V is the price, which Australians will see later in the year for $199. More specifically, the Alcatel 5 features a 5.7-inch 1440×720 pixel screen with an 18:9 aspect ratio. It is powered by the same processor as the Alcatel 3 with 3Gb of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. The Alcatel 3X runs on Nougat while the other two devices in the same segment get the Android Oreo operation.

Then there's the Alcatel 3X, which has its own dual rear camera setup with a 13MP sensor and a 5MP wide angle sensor. Unlike the Alcatel 5, the Alcatel 5 will be running on the latest Android 8.0 Oreo. It also includes 3GB of RAM and 32GB of expandable storage.

The Alcatel 5 available now in certain markets (UK TBC) in metallic gold and black retailing for €229.

Puzzling is the fact that only the 3 and 3V are running Android Oreo. The device will be pre-loaded with Android Go edition based on Android 8.1 Oreo. The 1T 7 is a 7-inch tablet with 1,024 x 600p IPS display while the 1T 10 features a 10-inch 1,280 x 800p IPS display. Under the hood, MediaTek MT8735A quad-core SoC paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage, which is expandable up to 128GB via microSD card. A powerful 2460mAh battery supplies the required power.
