The device will be available sometime next week unlocked straight from Alcatel's Canadian or US website, as well as on Amazon. Silling adopters will be able to snatch it for $179.99.
This sum of money gets you a 4.-inch 720p display, a quad-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon 410, 1.5GB RAM, microSD card slot, 13MP rear/5MP front-facing cameras, and a 2,000mAh battery, all packed up in 7.55mm thin body. LTE connectivity spans to LTE bands 2/4/5/7/12/17, while Android 5.0.2 is running the whole show.
Oh, and if the recent Stagefright security fiasco is worrying you, fret not - Alcatel revealed that the Idol 3 4.7" will be getting a security hotfix aiming to patch the gaping Stagefright hole.
