Vodafone Smart Platinum 7 is essentially Alcatel Idol 4s
While today’s the day the OnePlus 3 gets its shine on, you might be surprised at who will pop up next in the value crunching sector.
Take a look at Vodafone UK’s new Smart Platinum 7, set to come to the carrier on June 20. It has a 5.5-inch quad HD screen all lit up with AMOLEDs, a 16-megapixel rear camera with an 8-megapixel front facer, a “powerful octa-core processor” 3GB of RAM, a 3,000mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0, 32GB of storage Android Marshmallow and a Smart VR headset to boot.
Funny thing, though: the Smart Platinum 7 gets a fingerprint sensor on the back that the Idol 4s won’t have. Ah, the power of carriers to custom tailor their own-brand devices.
Last year, Vodafone released the Smart ultra 6, an analog to the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3.
