Another one of Alcatel’s new specialized mid-rangers has been leaked in full detail on Twitter. Contents include an 80-second video that’s likely intended to be part of a media loop for a store demonstration mode.

The materials come from WinFuture editor-in-chief Roland Quandt and they describe the Alcatel 3v. The upcoming Alcatel 3-series devices are the middle options in the budget-focused portfolio the TCL subsidiary wants to introduce at MWC 2018 — we know that an Alcatel 3c also exists from a previous leak that also detailed a fair bit about the 3v.

But the 3v that’s described here seems to be getting a different, more powerful MediaTek processor than what was last reported with a “2K” display in the trendy aspect ratio of 2:1. It touts the bog standard features of Android Oreo as well as software-adjustable bokeh editing for photos taken with the rearside dual-camera system. Besides a rear-mounted fingerprint key, there’s also Face Key — a self-explanatory facial scanning authentication system.

The phone is expected to come in Spectrum Black, Spectrum Blue and Spectrum Gold colors. No pricing has been disclosed.
