China’s TCL has revealed that we will get to see a new Alcatel-branded smartphone get unveiled at CES 2019. The manufacturer also revealed we will see some new display technologies at the event.

The phone’s name wasn’t revealed and TCL also kept a tight lip on its specs but it did say it will have a Full View Display. Alcatel hasn’t released a phone with the trending water-drop notch, so there is a chance the phone may come with that.

Apart from a new phone, TCL also revealed we will see some new smartphone display technologies one of which is its edge-to-edge dot displays.

The displays will be designed and manufactured by China Star Optoelectronics Technology (CSOT) a TCL-owned company best known for manufacturing TCL-branded TVs which are quite popular. Samsung Display also has a stake in the company.
