MWC 2013: Hands on with Alcatel One Touch Idol X

Alcatel unveiled its new 5-inch handset known as the One Touch Idol X. This device sports an ultra thin border around its edges and a quad-core processor under the hood.

The One Touch Idol X carries some respectable features and specs, including a 1080p resolution display, 16GB of internal storage with an microSD card slot for expandable memory, 13 megapixel camera, 2000mAh battery, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with some sort of custom user interface on top.

It’s a handset that has a very capable and responsive touchscreen, with a semi-soft plastic wrapped on the back. When we handled the phone, we noticed how extremely comfortable it was to hold, which is a good sign for such a large handset. The device will come in Red, Blue, and Yellow.

The Alcatel One Touch Idol X will be coming out sometime this year in 2013. Unfortunately, we didn’t get word to information on pricing and availability, or which countries the Idol X will be available. We expect Alcatel to give these precious details in an announcement at a later date.
