First image of the Alcatel One Touch Idol Mini leak out, release by the end of the year
While the One Touch Idol isn't winning any popularity prizes any time soon, Alcatel is seemingly unmoved by this, for a leaked photo by infamous @evleaks has spilled the beans on the existence of a One Touch Idol Mini. Expected to arrive by the end of the year, there has, as of yet, been no mention of this particular device, nor the particular internals that we can expect. If its big brother is any reference, we wouldn't hope for a specs beast – the One Touch Idol, while lightweight and slim at 110g and 7.9mm, respectively, it features a mid-range specs sheet.
The 'mini' segment has received some considerable attention lately, with both Samsung and HTC introducing more compact versions of their flagships, and this must be where Alcatel's One Touch Idol Mini is headed, too. But unless Alcatel manages to work up a small miracle in terms of price, the Idol Mini is most likely bound to continue the trend of obscure devices that just can't compete with the market leaders.

Alcatel mobile phone is owned by China's TCL.

The UI is as if iOS and LG's UI had a baby.

Yea TCL owns the mobile phones division not Alcatel. You should pay attention to this so you don't say the wrong thing anymore.
