Alcatel has for a while now firmly cemented itself as one of the go-to brands as far as budget mobile devices are concerned. Who can forget the Idol 3 from two years ago and its insane pricing? Or its flashy Pixi lineup of entry-level smartphones and tablets? Or the bottom of the barrel Pop series?
This year, the Alcatel brand will be counting on one more device series to drive its budget agenda: the newly unveiled (at CES) A series.
The first member of the Alcatel A series is the A3 XL, a 6-inch smartphone that is headed to Asia Pacific, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America, markets that highly budget-conscious and where Alcatel’s mother company TCL has been able to make serious inroads over the last few years.
Bearing the ‘XL’ model name, it means that we are likely to see some new members of the A3 family that have varying screen sizes in no time and even other devices under the new broad A series.
Specifications of the Alcatel A3 XL are as follows:
|Size||165 x 82.5 x 7.9mm|
|Display||6-inch IPS LCD with 720 x 1280-pixel resolution|
|Processor||A quad-core MediaTek MT8735B chip clocked at 1.1GHz|
|Memory||1GB RAM, 8GB onboard storage|
|Camera||8MP rear with 720p, 30fps video; 5MP front|
|Operating System||Android 7.0 Nougat|
