Alcatel One Touch 995 shots surface, might bring Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich to the masses
French company Alcatel's budget-friendly Android offerings might not offer anything that would make them stand out of the crowd, but the Alcatel One Touch 995, photos of which have surfaced on the web, may turn out to be an exception. Rumored to be scheduled for unveiling at MWC 2012, the smartphone may run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and is said to come with a spacious 4.3-inch display.

If the information provided by an Alcatel insider is to be believed, the One Touch 995 will pack a 1.4GHz processor, a 5-megapixel camera, and will get updated from Gingerbread to ICS soon after its launch. Judging by the shots below, the device will sport a front-facing camera as well, and there also seems tho be a secondary microphone most probably intended for noise cancellation. Besides, the interface appears to have been pimped out with Alcatel's 3D carousel UI, but whether it will look the same way once the rumored One Touch 995 gets updated to ICS remains unclear.

However, the main selling point of the yet-unannounced One Touch 995 might be its affordability. It is speculated that the smartphone will retail for about 200 euros, which is roughly $275. A tempting price for a device running Android's very latest, don't you think?

The post says it will be getting ICS soon after it launches, sp when it launches it will most likely have gingerbread so the leaked photos will most likely be it running gingerbread.
