Last month, 2 Alcatel phones namely the 5 & the 3V, popped up on Amazon France, suggesting an imminent launch. And today, Alcatel USA verified their arrival along with a third smartphone – the Alcatel 1X. All 3 phones will be launched on February 24 at MWC 2018.
Alcatel didn’t say much, but the image is revealing enough. The Alcatel 5, as earlier leaked images suggested, will be missing bezels on the sides, a tiny one on the bottom & a regular forehead for what looks like a dual camera setup.
The Alcatel 3V & the Alcatel 1X are expected to impress in the low-midrange & ultra-affordable markets. Their designs are standard with tall 18:9 displays & no home button on the front. The 3V will come with the volume rocker on the left side & the power key on the right side, while the 1X will come with all the buttons on the right side.
Known specs of the 3 devices are sparse, but we will report as soon as the phones are unveiled.
