Three new Alcatel smartphones at CES
Alcatel came to Vegas to prove they’re still competitive, and to support this claim, they presented three new phones – the ONE TOUCH Idol, the ONE TOUCH Idol Ultra, and the ONE TOUCH Scribe HD.
The Idol Ultra may in fact claim the “world’s thinnest smartphone” title, being just 6.45mm thin. Specs-wise, it features a 4.7 inch HD display, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, an 8 megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording and will run Android Jelly Bean.
The One Touch Idol is a bit thicker than the Ultra, but has very similar specs – a 4.7 inch IPS display, a dual-core processor, an 8 megapixel HD camera, a 2 megapixel front camera and Android Jelly Bean. The device will come with brushed metallic finishes so it should feel like a premium experience.
Out of the three, the One Touch Scribe HD is most interesting. It boasts a 5 inch HD display (resolution unknown) and is powered by MediaTek’s quad-core MT6589 chipset, has an 8 megapixel HD camera, a 720p webcam on the front and Android Jelly Bean.
