Alcatel OneTouch Flash announced as a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo competitor
The newest Alcatel-branded smartphone is the OneTouch Flash (model number 6042D), a handset that’s been officially introduced in Thailand - where it’s going to be promoted as a Samsung Galaxy Note competitor.

Alcatel’s promo video for the OneTouch Flash shows the handset personified as an Android robot that fights an evil-looking “Note.” Obviously, the Flash wins in the end, helped by some of its allegedly superior features. Alcatel is pitting its new device against the Note 3 Neo, not against the high-end Note 3: as you’ll see in the video, OneTouch Flash’s opponent has a 3100 mAh battery, just like the Note 3 Neo (and unlike the Note 3, which comes with a 3200 mAh battery). 

Regardless of what handsets it’s going to compete with, the Alcatel OneTouch Flash runs Android 4.4 KitKat, and features a 5.5-inch IPS display with 720 x 1280 pixels, an octa-core 1.4GHz MediaTek processor, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of expandable internal memory. There’s a 13 MP camera on the back, and a 5 MP front-facing camera with a “smart beauty” function for better selfies. The new smartphone also comes with Hotknot, which is an NFC alternative developed by MediaTek.

The Alcatel OneTouch Flash should be available to buy in Thailand starting September 8 for an unknown price (a low one, we assume). Most likely, the handset will be released in other markets shortly after that.

Blue i-Flash is fighting the red Note... and its own creator.
So... is this i-Flash supposed to go against Alcatel or what? xD

Now that you mention it, why hasn't the Redmi Note receive an Android 4.4 update yet?

What would be a killer for me is the menu button... I freaking hate physical or on screen menu buttons!

I don't know what it is with some of these companies that like to try to advertise their brand with sexualized marketing. Come up with something more clever and effective for selling your product.

*all of these companies

Everyone does it.
Because sex sells. It's a popular marketing practice from a very long time.
Glad you noticed, sir.

Alcatel, not so much. Sad though,... Once a pioneer in the telephone industry, now they're just... Sad....

This phone is no match to Note 3 Neo. I own Note 3 Neo SM-N750 and it is a beast. Note 3 Neo is 5.5 inches tall, 2 GB RAM, 16GB in built memory and expandable upto even 64GB with 3100 mah. Battery life is excellent if not the best. I get nearly 10 hours of SOT over 2 and half days. (60 hours) Without root, without flight mode , without auto brightness, without power saving mode. Previously I was getting 5 to 6 and half hours of SOT over 5/7 days. But now I get much better Screen on Time. It is affordable and all rounder in every aspect. Plays all games, no lag or overheating at all. Charging takes 1 and half hours or even less to reach 100%. Hexacore processor with 2 GBM Ram with stylus that has amazing features. It is one hell of a phone. I am not so sure this phone can compete with Note 3 Neo in anyway.
