Alcatel, the brand which is now licensed by TCL, has announced a new tablet in the Indian market — Alcatel POP4 10. The 4G tablet comes with voice-calling support. The tablet will be available in India from today onwards, exclusively through online retailer Flipkart for Rs. 10,990, which roughly converts to $172.
The tablet comes pre-installed with a learning app with NCERT books for all grades. The content of the pre-installed app is available in English, Hindi, and Urdu which will be accessible offline.
The Alcatel POP4 10 comes with a 10.1-inch Full HD display with 1920 x 1200 pixels screen resolution and is powered by Qualcomm‘s Snapdragon 430 processor along with 2GB RAM. It packs 16GB of internal storage and supports microSD card up to 32GB for expanding storage.
There’s an 8-megapixel rear facing camera as well as a 5-megapixel front-facing camera. Unfortunately, the device runs on years old Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system out-of-the-box and we doubt if the tablet will ever receive the Android version update.
Connectivity options include 4G LTE, Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, A-GPS, Wi-Fi Direct, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The device is powered by a 5,830mAh battery that is rated to provide up to 30 hours of talk time. The company is also offering 5GB Onetouch Cloud storage.
As said, priced at Rs. 10,900 (approximately $172), the tablet will be exclusively available through Flipkart from today onwards in two color variants — Dark Grey and Silver. As a part of the company’s special launch offer, first 200 customers of the Alcatel POP4 10 can purchase the Alcatel KB9030 Bluetooth keyboard for just Re. 1.
