TCL Communication, the company behind Alcatel brand of phones, has launched its latest Alcatel One Touch Idol smartphone series in India. Alcatel OneTouch Idol Ultra is the first phone which has been unveiled under this series. As per the company, Alcatel Onetouch Idol Ultra is also slimmest Android phone with just 6.45 mm thickness. It has just 110 grams weight making it one of lightest handsets as well. The One Touch Idol will also be featured in the latest upcoming movie Iron Man 3, 3G data and 3 months of Idea TV for 261 to prepaid users; postpaid users can avail the same for 259.
Running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS, Alcatel One touch Idol Ultra comes with 4.7 inch HD Amoled display with HD 720×1280 pixels resolution, an Oleophobic Coating which keeps the screen fingerprint resistant, 1.2 GHz dual core processor, 1 GB RAM and 16 GB storage.
Among the other features, it has 8 megapixel camera with LED flash, 1.3MP front camera and usual set of connectivity features like 3G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, AGPS and micro USB.
The phone is priced at 21,000 and is available in black and red colours. We think that this is a very high price for a brand that has not had much of success in India so far. However, the quality of the phone will determine its destiny.
As per the spoke person of the company, Alcatel will launch a range of 10 to 15 smartphones in the market in next couple of months.
