Not all companies are showing off foldable or bezel-less phones in this years MWC! One of those is Alcatel. But it does have 3 phones and a tablet to show off in MWC 2019. Alcatel has launched the Alcatel 1S, Alcatel 3L and Alcatel 3 alongside a tablet named Alcatel 3T. These are all entry level smartphones/ mid-range smartphones that will not particularly shake up the mobile phone industry but are mere choices if you are looking for affordability.

Alcatel 1S:

Alcatel 1S is the most affordable among all in the list that features a plastic build and is a bit more compact. The device stands at 5.5- inches with HD resolution and 18: aspect ratio.

As far as the performance is concerned, the device is powered by a Spreadturm SC9863 Octa-core processor with 3GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal storage. This might not be an abundance of power but you still get good things like Android 9 Pie out of the box. Likewise, the Alcatel 1S packs a 3,060 mAh battery.

Alcatel 3L:

Second among the launches is the Alcatel 3L which like the, 1S has a plastic build but unlike the previous one, has a Snapdragon 429 processor with just 2 GB of RAM. Aesthetics- wise, we’re looking at a 5.94-inch HD+ display with 19.5:9 aspect ratio. And this tie, the device has a tiny notch on top for the selfie camera. Speaking of which, the selfie camera is an 8 MP sensor and at the back, we see dual cameras like the 1s but different in Megapixel counts.

The back houses two cameras, one with 13 MP RGB sensor and another, a depth sensor with a megapixel count of 5MP. So, with those cameras, you get features like Bokeh effect and AI scene detection. Additionally, there is Google Lens support included.

However, the 3L disappoints with only having Android 8.1 Oreo, whereas the more inexpensive 1S has Android Pie. However, the company says, the device will get Android Pie in Q2 of this year. Additionally, the phone also has Facial Recognition.

Alcatel 3 2019

The Alcatel 3 2019’s design is similar to the 3L, but with more memory and speed. Not only the design is similar, but other things are similar to the 3L like, the design, display and camera setup. However, this one has a slightly powerful Snapdragon 439 processor with two memory configuration options, 3GB/32GB or 4GB/64GB. Unlike the 3L, this one has Android 9.0 Pie out of the box and overpowers the Alcatel 3L in many aspects.

Alcatel 3T 10

Alcatel 3T 10 is an interesting product offer. It’s a tablet standing at 10 inches of 800x 1280 pixels IPS display. The “3” in the name is for Tablet and the “10” signifies the 10- inch display. That is not the interesting part, however. The intriguing part is that fact that the table has a sort of smart display. This one features a far-field recognition of up to 3 meters, meaning you can trigger Google Assistant hands-free.

Other than that, the 3T has an unspecified processor with 2GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory with support for external memory expansion. Camera -wise, there is an unimpressive 2 MP front camera and rear camera.

Battery capacity is a huge 4,080 mAh which is considerable for such a huge display. Also, the device comes with Android 9.0 Pie out of the box, which is a good thing.

Although the specs are not as impressive to lure a lot of audiences, it can be a good deal for people wanting a tablet that functions as a smart display/ speaker of sorts. In order to enhance audio experience, the company has added an additional audio dock that includes two 5W speakers and double bass enhancement units for distortion-free sound. Also, the company has provided 2,000 mAh battery in the speakers of its own.
