Alcatel has introduced the 2019 edition of its popular affordable entry-level 1 Series smartphones – the 1X and 1C – which offer incredible value to the customer.
Unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, both of these devices include the TCL-made FullView display along with the design and build quality that would make you think it costs hundreds of dollars more.
The Alcatel 1X has a 5.5-inch display with all new textured feel that is both scratch and slip resistant.
Also on board is a camera that will provide real-time bokeh as well as new capture modes that will allow you to take impressive portrait style images.
The second depth-sensing lens along with the included post shot editing software will allow users to actually refocus photographs and blur the rest of the picture after they’ve been taken.
The new Alcatel 1C demonstrates the fact that entry level phones don’t need to have a bulky design or small screen.
The 1C includes a 5 inch 18:9 FullView display and a sleek modern design.
It also comes with a nonslip finish and has a camera with options like Beautification mode and Instant Collage.
The device is powered by the Android Oreo (Go edition) to give customers an experience unlike any other entry-level smartphone.
Australian pricing and availability are yet to be confirmed.
But one thing is for certain – they will be priced competitively.
