TCL-owned Alcatel has a bunch of smartphones expected to launch within a week. The brand has restructured its lineup into three categories – the Alcatel 1, Alcatel 3, and Alcatel 5 series. Specifications as well as possible pricing of the Alcatel 3V (belonging to the 3 series) have been leaked online.
The info was posted on Twitter by Roland Quandt (@Rquandt) who had earlier mentioned that three new Alcatel phones will be released in the coming week.
The Alcatel 3V will have a 6” 2160 x 1080 screen with an 18:9 aspect ratio. It will be powered by MediaTek’s MT6737 1.45GHz quad-core processor paired with 2GB of RAM. Storage is 16GB and is expandable.
The Alcatel 3V as seen in earlier leaks does sport dual rear cameras. One is a 16MP sensor and the other is a 2MP sensor most likely for capturing depth of field details. The front camera is an 8MP sensor.
Beneath the vertically arranged dual rear cameras is a fingerprint sensor and under the mirror-like rear plate lies a 3000mAh battery. The phone has a micro USB port, Bluetooth 4.2, and Cat. 4 LTE. It is said to be 8.05mm thick and weighs 169g.
The version of Android it runs isn’t stated but the Alcatel 3V is expected to be priced at about ~€179 (~$219). That sure is a lot if you ask me but considering that the phone will be imported into Europe and taxes have to be paid, it is understandable.
In the images provided, the Alcatel 3V is covered in a nice blue paint. However, this may not be the only color available at a launch.
