Alcatel 1 goes official as one of the cheapest Android Go phones on the market

Alcatel 1 goes official as one of the cheapest Android Go phones on the market
The 1x is Alcatel's cheapest Android smartphone, but that might not be the case for too long. Alcatel is launching yet another affordable Android Go handset, which is likely to be even cheaper than the 1x.

The new Alcatel 1 is losing the 'x' letter to become the cheapest Android Go smartphone launched by the Chinese company. The phone recently popped up in Russia, but we have yet to learn more details about its availability and price.

However, we do know the Alcatel 1 runs Android Go and sports a 5-inch display with 480 x 960 pixels resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio. Since it's so cheap, the smartphone includes only a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera and a secondary 2-megapixel selfie shooter.

As expected, the chip inside is made by MediaTek and packs four cores that run at 1.3GHz. The MediaTek MT6739 is complemented by 1GB RAM and 8GB expandable storage. On the bright side, the Alcatel 1 offers LTE support and dual-SIM functionality.

We're waiting for Alcatel to announce how much its newest Android Go smartphone costs, but if you're thinking of getting one when it goes on sale in your country, then you might want to know it will be available in gold, blue, and black.
