TCL Communications has today launched a pair of new budget phones dubbed the Alcatel 3X and Alcatel 1SE. Both the phones run Android 10, come in a trio of colors, and have a waterdrop notch at the top. The Alcatel 1SE features three cameras at the back, while the Alcatel 3X packs a more powerful quad rear camera setup.

Alcatel 3X, on the other hand, relies on the octa-core MediaTek Helio P22 processor ticking alongside 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage.
