Alcatel expands Android lineup with four One Touch POP smartphones
The Alcatel One Touch POP C1 is the smallest smartphone of the bunch, equipped with a 3.5-inch 320x480 pixel display. Inside it beats a 1GHz dual-core processor backed by 512MB of RAM. A 2MP main camera, 4GB of storage, and 1300mAh battery are also listed on the device's modest specs sheet, indicating that the Alcatel One Touch POP C1 will be affordable above all.
The Alcatel One Touch POP C3 is slightly larger, sporting a 4-inch, 480x800 pixel display. It is powered by a 1.3Ghz dual-core processor paired with 512MB of RAM. A pair of cameras is also on board - a 3.2MP main module and a basic front-facing snapper. 4GB of storage and a 1300mAh battery are also present.
Moving further down the list, we have the Alcatel One Touch POP C5, packing a 4.3-inch screen with resolution of 480 by 854 pixels. Computing is handled by a dual-core 1.3GHz processor backed by 512MB of RAM. In addition, you get a front-facing camera and a 5MP main cam. 4GB of storage and a 1800mAh battery are also listed on the POP C5's specs sheet. Interestingly, the smartphone supports HD Voice for clearer voice calls.
And last but not least we have the Alcatel One Touch C7, which is the largest of the four, offering a 4.5-inch touchscreen with resolution of 480 by 854 pixels. It should also be the fastest among the bunch thanks to its quad-core 1.3GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. Furthermore, you get a 5MP main camera, a front-facing shooter for self-portraits, 4GB of storage, and a 2000mAh battery.
All of the new Alcatel One touch POP smartphones will be available in dual-SIM configuration as well. Of course, they come with all the basic necessities, such as support for Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, and storage expansion via microSD cards.
Given their entry-level nature, we assume that the new Alcatel One Touch POP smartphones will stand out with their low retail cost. They could prove a decent pick for anyone looking for a cute and colorful Android device that fits in most consumers' budgets. Specifics regarding price and release date, however, are to be announced at a later date.
