Alcatel OneTouch Continues Consumer Push With Unlocked Idol 3 4.7.

Alcatel launched its phablet-sized 5.5-inch OneTouch Idol 3 smartphone in April. 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. But it comes with a 1,280-by-720 display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, 16GB of storage with a memory card slot, 1.5GB of RAM, and a 2,000mAh battery.

Other unlocked phones available from Alcatel OneTouch are the $124 OneTouch Idol Mini without LTE, $158 OneTouch POP C9 without LTE, the LTE-equipped Idol 3 at $249, the $268 Idol 2S with LTE, and the $298 Idol X+ with LTE. All operate on the AT&T and T-Mobile networks, the networks of many regional GSM providers, and the following MVNOs and prepaid providers: MetroPCS, Straight Talk, Walmart Family Mobile, Net10, Univision and Cricket. Earlier this year, Alcatel OneTouch began supplementing smartphone sales to U.S. carriers and MVNOs with the U.S. launch of direct-to-consumer sales of unlocked phones, unlocked cellular-equipped tablets, smart watches and accessories through its web store. 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. 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.
