MWC 2018: Alcatel launches an Android Go phone

Alcatel 5

Alcatel Revamps Its Smartphones with Supersized Screens

"The 7" variant of the Alcatel 1T has a 1024 x 600 display, 1GB of RAM and 8GB of built-in storage. Out of the box, the Alcatel 3V comes with Android 8 Oreo.

Coming to the Alcatel 3 line, the company states this one is created to offer a relatively similar experience to the Alcatel 5, but at a cheaper price point. 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. Firstly, in the display department, with the Alcatel 3 equipped with a 5.5-inch (1440 x 720) IPS display, the Alcatel 3X with a 5.7-inch (1440 x 720) IPS display, and the Alcatel 3V with a 6-inch 2K (2160 x 1080) display. Truthfully, there isn't much to be excited about the device because the 1X is a low-end phone. Processors do differ slightly as well although all three sport MediaTek solutions, along with a 3,000 mAh battery.

Alcatel 1x

The Alcatel 3 and 3X are also part of a series "designed with beautifully curved lines, sleek 2.5D contoured edge glass, and curved backs", with the former settling for a 5.5-inch HD+ display, while the latter bumps the size up to 5.7 inches, retaining the 1440 x 720 resolution.

On the front you'll find a 5 MP camera for all your selfie-taking needs.

Barron said "The painful but important truth to acknowledge is that sometimes things can go wrong". He did not specify where in the world the 21 staff members had been working.

The phone's rear camera comes in at 13-megapixels, with the front shooter sporting 5-megapixels. All of this starts at €149.99 (about $185). You'll get a 5.3 inch display with a 16 megapixel camera, and interestingly, it'll also be using the Android Go version of Android Oreo.

The handset comes in two variants: either 32GB of internal storage with 3GB of RAM or 16GB of internal storage and 2GB of RAM. We've already seen some OEMs take advantage of those optimizations, but no phones running a "Go Edition" version of Android have landed until now.

The Syracuse Orange will go on the road to take on the Duke Blue Devils as part of the College Basketball schedule for Saturday. Suffice it to say these usual NCAA tournament mainstays will be sweating out the next few weeks leading up to Selection Sunday.

We'll be seeing Android Go debut on other smartphones through the week, so stay tuned! Such kind of devices are usually favored in countries such as India and certain European countries, therefore the Alcatel 1X will be available in both single and dual SIM variants, which will carry a price tag of €100 (RM482) and €110 (RM530) respectively.
