Octa-core Alcatel One Touch Idol X+ coming soon to AT&T?
Alcatel introduced its new One Touch Idol X+ in the first quarter of the year, positioning it as an affordable mid- to high-end smartphone. While the handset is available in lots of markets around the world, it hasn’t been released in the US. However, it looks like it will be launched there eventually.

Android Central received a few photos that reportedly show an AT&T-bound Alcatel One Touch Idol X+. There’s no word on when the carrier intends to announce the smartphone, but “soon” is probably a good guess.

While the original Idol X+ was released running Android Jelly Bean, it’s said that the AT&T version will have KitKat on board at launch. That aside, the handset should be the same as the one that we’re familiar with, offering a 5-inch 1080p display, 13MP rear camera, octa-core 2GHz MediaTek MT6592 processor, 2GB of RAM, expandable internal memory, and a 2,500 mAh battery.

This is going to have horrible battery life :/
But I still like this phone.

Why would it have horrible battery life? With those specs, seems like it could get pretty decent battery life. Especially since it has the MediaTek processor.

Not bad, considering it will probably be quite reasonably priced.

Wouldn't it be awesome if this was released for AT&T prepaid for less than the Nexus 5? That would be an excellent replacement phone if it was reasonably priced.

No software support vs best software support. I'll take the Nexus 5...

Octa-core MediaTek processor means nothing. MediaTek processors suck in comparison to Qualcomm processors...

According to the benchmarks the 2GHz MediaTek MT6592 is just slightly below the Snapdragon 800.

Hmmm... I still doubt it has the quality of a Qualcomm processor...

What quality? They are both made on the same silicon?
