CES 2020: Introducing low-end Alcatel 1V, 1S, 3L and 1B phones
Alcatel 3L: the brand’s first 48MP
In the megapixel war and the tight competition of brands to increase the resolution of cameras, the presence of a 48 megapixel camera is not a new thing, but by placing it in a smartphone with a price range below $200, the situation will change. . Alcatel 3L relatively smartphone It is large with a 6.22-inch screen that has clear borders on the top and bottom and on the sides. The resolution of this screen is HD+ in the ratio of 19:9 or 720 x 1520 pixels, which with 270 ppi compression is not the densest sample in this category, but at least on paper, it does not offer such bad conditions. Above this screen, a small semi-circular notch can be seen that houses the device’s 8-megapixel selfie camera.
The main attraction of this phone is in the back part and its cameras, which include three imaging units for the second time after 3X 2019. The main camera of this series is a 48 megapixel sample (apparently with Samsung ISOCELL Bright GM1) which sees a relatively fast f/1.8 lens in front of it. Apart from this camera, a 5-megapixel ultrawide unit with a 115-degree field of view (apparently with f/2.2) and a 2-megapixel macro capture camera (apparently with f/2.4) also accompany this image set.
Processing in 3L with Mediatek MT6762 8-core 12nm chipset (apparently the same Helio P22) containing 8 ARM Cortex-A53 cores with a maximum frequency of 2 GHz and 4 GB of RAM And it has 64 GB of expandable internal memory. The device’s battery capacity is 4,000 mAh, which is considered a high capacity for this price range, but on the other hand, there is no mention of the possibility of fast charging.
Alcatel 3L will be available in black and green and a black/blue/purple combination color from the first quarter of 2020 at a price of around $155.
Alcatel 1S: triple camera price breaker
In Alcatel 1S apparently uses the same design as Acatel 3L with the same screen and form of triple cameras and fingerprint sensor on the back, and the changes have occurred only in the internal parts of the device. The unmodified 1S screen is still a 6.22-inch IPS LCD with a resolution of 720 x 1520 pixels, with a small semi-circular notch on top. The 48-megapixel 3L camera on the back has now been replaced by a 13-megapixel f/1.8 camera, but the other two cameras, 5-megapixel ultra-wide and 2-megapixel macro, are still in place.
In the processing part, another chipset called Mediatek MT6762D is used, which specific information has not been published. The RAM memory is 3 GB and the internal memory has been reduced to 32 GB. This phone will also be available in the markets of Europe, Latin America, Central Asia, the Middle East and Africa from the first quarter of 2020 at a price of around 110 dollars in green and gray colors.
Alcatel 1V: reducing the number of cameras, reducing the price
Alcatel 1V should be considered the same as 1S with a slight change in the design of the back part and of course reducing the number of cameras from 3 to 2. The screen of this model is also 6.22 inches HD with distinct borders and a semi-circular notch on the upper part, which is apparently no different from the other two models. In the back part, however, we find only two cameras of 13 and 5 megapixels, and the third camera has been removed from this collection. Of course, the fingerprint sensor and LED flash are still present in this part.
In terms of processing and memory, there is no difference with the 1S and the same MT6762D processor is present with 32 GB of internal memory. Of course, the RAM has been reduced from 3 to 2 GB. This phone will be released in the first quarter of 2020 at a price of $88 in black and green colors.
Alcatel 1B: Android Go at the lowest price
Alcatel 1B The simplest and cheapest model released Alcatel It is this time that despite the fact that it offers few features at first glance, but by looking at the platform of the device i.e. Android Go and comparing it with other examples of this category, it can be considered a suitable place for it. The screen of this model is 5.5 inches with HD+ resolution, with two thick borders at the top and bottom.
In the back part of 1B, only one camera can be seen, the specifications of which are not mentioned, and there is no mention of the fingerprint sensor. The 1B is powered by an unannounced quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. This phone apparently has a dedicated button to summon Google Assistant is equipped. Android Go of this phone is apparently based on version 10 of this operating system, which is also superior to other competitors in the same category. Alcatel 1B in two colors, green and black, will be available in the target markets of this brand from the first quarter of 2020 at a price of $66.
