Alcatel Idol 5 specs, pictures and price exposed before official reveal
The Idol 5 is a mid-range smartphone that runs Android 7.0 Nougat. Unfortunately, it's much more expensive than it should, considering the rest of the specs. It appears that Alcatel Idol 5 will be launched in Europe for around €250 outright.
The phone is equipped with a 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6735 processor, 3GB RAM and 16GB internal memory, which can be further expanded via microSD card.
Alcatel Idol 5 sports a 5.2-inch IPS display with full HD (1080p) resolution and packs a decent 2,800 mAh battery. A 16-megapixel camera is positioned on the back side, alongside a fingerprint sensor. There's also a secondary 8-megapixel camera on the front for selfies and video calls.
The smartphone should be announced in early September at IFA, but it might not go on sale right away. It's also unclear whether or not Alcatel will make it available in other regions.
