TCL presents the new Alcatel 1 Series smartphones

TCL has presented its new Alcatel 1 Series smartphones for 2019 that include the budget-friendly Alcatel 1X and the Alcatel 1C

Alcatel 1 is $80, but there’s one big feature missing…

TCL has added another option at the budget end of its phone offerings and it is as bare bones as it can get. But is it worth $80?
