Alcatel is not forgetting about the low-cost segment where it has the upper hand in the competition against other popular companies, mostly because of their terminals’ prices and decent technical specifications.
The latest three additions to Alcatel’s low-end portfolio debuted at CES 2013: Alcatel One Touch X’Pop, Alcatel One Touh S’Pop, and Alcatel One Touch T’Pop.
With cool names and colorful body liveries, the new Alcatel One Touch Pop line-up aims at the youths that are willing to purchase their first Android smartphone. All three devices have pretty decent technical specifications despite being low-cost smartphones.
Alcatel One Touch X’Pop brings a 4.5-inch display with qHD resolution, a dual-core 1 GHz CPU, 512 MB of RAM, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean out of the box. In terms of connectivity, Alcatel One Touch X’Pop brings 3G, WiFi, Bluetooth, and microUSB.
Alcatel One Touch X’Pop also comes with a 5 megapixel camera on the back and a front-facing 0.3 megapixel camera for video calls.
On the other hand, Alcatel One Touch S’Pop brings a smaller display, a 3.5-inch unit with a resolution of 320×480 pixels. It is underpinned by a single-core 1 GHz processor and has 512 MB of RAM. Running on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Alcatel One Touch S’Pop also packs a 3.2 megapixel primary camera and a 0.3 megapixel user-facing sensor.
Least, but not last, comes Alcatel One Touch T’Pop. The less powerful and probably the cheapest of the three, it sports the same 3.5-inch display (320 x 480 pixels) and CPU (single-core unit clocked at 1 GHz) as S’Pop, coming with only 256 MB of RAM. The smartphone leaves the factory gates with Android 2.3 Gingerbread on board.
The prices of Alcatel One Touch X’Pop, S’Pop, and T’Pop are still a mystery, but we know for sure that the three smartphones will debut in the first quarter of the year.
