Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 4.7 Coming to US & Canada on Friday.

When Alcatel OneTouch first introduced the Idol 3 back in March, it said that the phone would be available in two screen sizes: 5.5 inches and 4.7 inches.Now Alcatel OneTouch is launching a new model that has the same basic design elements, but a smaller case, a lower-price tag, and somewhat less impressive hardware. It has stereo front-facing speakers with JBL audio, features a 2,000 mAh battery, a microSD card slot, a 13MP rear camer and a 5MP front-facing camera.

The phone sports a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 along with 1.5GB of RAM, while the big-screen version makes use of the octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 along with 2GB of RAM. I think smaller phones are a breath of fresh air these days, and with its price tag of $179.99, this is definitely a device for budget-conscious users out there to keep on their radar. It’ll come preloaded with Android 5.0.2, and it supports LTE bands 2, 4, 5, 7, 12, and 17, so it ought to play nicely with both AT&T and T-Mobile in the US.

In exchange, though, you’re getting a smaller phone (134.6 x 65.9 x 7.55mm vs 152.7 x 75.14 x 7.4mm) that’s better suited to one-handed use, as well as a smaller price. A total of 16GB internal storage is included, which is higher than many of its competitors, plus you can add another 32GB of additional storage using the microSD slot. Android 5.0.2 is installed as standard, and it features an unusual rotating user interface, meaning you can use it whatever way round you’re holding the phone, upside down or right side up. That includes the front-facing JBL speakers which give you some amazing sound, but don’t take up a whole lot of space, unlike the Boomsound speakers from HTC.
