Alcatel has unveiled no less than three phones in Barcelona – Alcatel Idol 2, Idol 2 Mini and OneTouch Pop Fit.
The Idol 2 is obviously the best phone on the list, boasting a 5-inch 720p HD screen, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 8-megapixel rear and 1.3-megapixel front-cameras, NFC, 3G and/or 4G connectivity. All this is packed into a 7.3mm-thin body; Android 4.3 is running the show, though KitKat update will be released later in the year. The 3G-enabled Idol 2 will go for €199, while its 4G variant will sell for 50 Euro more.
The second device, Idol 2 Mini, is obviously a smaller version of the big Idol 2 with specs that include a 4.5-inch qHD screen, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 8 megapixel rear + 2 megapixel front camera, NFC, 3G and/or 4G connectivity support. At 8.5mm, this is slightly thicker model (than the “regular” Idol 2). Again it runs Android 4.3 but will get its serving of KitKats in the next few months. The Idol 2 Mini will sell for €169 and €209 for the 3G and 4G models, respectively.
Finally, we have the OneTouch Pop Fit, which is touted as a wearable smartphone. It has a small 2.8-inch QVGA display, 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, 16 or 32GB of internal memory and a 1,000mAh battery. Inside the box, users will get back covers in black, blue, pink, yellow and red, semi-transparent flip cover, armband case and JBL earphones. The OneTouch Pop Fit base model will be available for €89.
