TCL has presented its new Alcatel 1 Series smartphones for 2019 that include the budget-friendly Alcatel 1X and the Alcatel 1C
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?
TCL introduced us to the Alcatel 1X earlier this year with what we thought was the most basic setup with modern trimmings you can get in 2018. Well, this.
Officially priced at $99.99, the entry-level Alcatel 1X combines Google's Android Oreo (Go edition) software optimizations with a trendy screen and generous 16GB internal storage.
What may be considered the best of the crop and the most accessible of Alcatel's Android smartphones for 2018 are coming to the US.
Here they are, the budget-friendly Alcatel 1X, 3, 3X, 3V and 5 in the flesh at MWC 2018, complete with 18:9 screens, fingerprint sensors and great bang for buck.
The Alcatel 5, 3V, 3X, 3 and 1X are all extremely affordable for their very respectable specs and features, including 18:9 screens and facial recognition.
One of these companies has been taken to the wringer by the US government and itself. The other loses an executive, a sad yearly tradition. We discuss both on our show!
We already know a great deal about the technically unreleased 18:9 Alcatel 5, 3v and 1x smartphones, which will be fully detailed next Saturday, February 24.
Two of TCL's "re-imagined" Alcatel smartphones previewed at CES 2018 last week are already detailed in full, sharing a display aspect ratio and fingerprint scanner.
The upcoming Alcatel 5, 3 and 1 Series of Android smartphones will target different price tiers while sharing 18:9 "full view" displays and a "universal" design language.
