Alcatel One Touch Evolve, One Touch Fierce smartphones coming to T-Mobile
T-Mobile just announced that it is adding a couple of low-cost offerings to its extensive Android lineup. These are the Alcatel One Touch Fierce and One Touch Evolve smartphones, both of which are to be made available in the coming weeks. 

Out of the two, the Alcatel One Touch Fierce is the more capable handset, powered by Android 4.2. Among its strongest assets is the MT6589M SoC with its 1.2GHz quad-core processor, so we're expecting the smartphone's performance to be at least acceptable. On the front of the device we have a fairly large, 4.5-inch screen with a resolution fitting for an affordable phone – 540 by 960 pixels. Alcatel has included a 5MP camera with LED flash, and a front-facing VGA cam is present as well. Further specs include 1GB of RAM, 4GB of storage with microSD card support, and a 1800mAh battery capable of delivering 8 hours of talk time. While the phone is advertised as 4G-capable, it has a 21Mbps HSPA+ radio, not an LTE one.

Further down the hierarchy stands the Alcatel One Touch Evolve, which is a low-end Android 4.1 smartphone. The 4-inch, 480x800 pixel display seems passable, but the 1GHz MediaTek MT6575 chip could prove too weak to deliver a smooth user experience, especially when only 512MB of RAM are present. We also see a 5MP camera on its back, 4GB of storage under the hood, a microSD card slot, 7.2Mbps HSPA radio, and a battery rated for 13 hours of talk time on a single-charge.  

Both the Alcatel One Touch Fierce and One Touch Evolve will be priced very low, making them suitable for buyers on a budget. The One Touch Fierce will be offered with the T-Mobile Simple Choice plan, costing $19.99 down, followed by 24 monthly payments of $6. The One Touch Evolve goes even lower, priced at $27.99 down, with 24 payments of $3 afterwards when paired with the same plan. Both handsets will be available at select T-Mobile stores nationwide on October 5 and online soon after.
