Alcatel introduces 3 new phones including the One Touch Idol Mini


Alcatel, the international arm of TCL have just updated their website with 3 new Android phones ranging from the Idol Mini to the updated Idol X.

TCL’s Idol X with 2GB RAM and a faster 1.5Ghz MT6589T processor has been on sale in China for a few months now, and finally the updates have made their way over to the Alcatel branded phone.

Alcatel Idol X

The Alcatel Idol X is now listed as 6.9mm, 1080 FHD phone with options of a single SIM 8GB version and dual SIM 16GB model. Both options have 13.1 mega-pixel cameras, and offer an SD card bay for up to 32GB cards.

Alcatel One touch Idol S

The Idol S is a mid-range Android phone with a 4.7-inch 720p display, the older 1.2Ghz quad-core MT6589 chipset, 1GB RAM and 4GB memory. There is also an 8 mega-pixel rear camera, Android 4.2 and it comes bundled with a few Android games.

Alcatel Idol Mini

The big surprise is the Alcatel Idol Mini. Although the mini could have been a slimmed down version of the idol X, Alcatel have decided to make the baby of the family also the lowest spec’d.

A 4.3-inch 854 x 480 display is pretty dire in this day an age as is the 1.3Ghz dual-core processor, 5 mega-pixel rear camera and 512mb RAM!

Alcatel haven’t announced pricing yet, but neither of the phones should cost all that much.

  • Andy, i think you are wrong . only single-sim version of idol x offers a tf card slot

  • I like so much the idol x, single or dual sim. the problem it’s I can found it for Latino America 3G network.
    I already wrote to Alcatel but don’t give me an answer. Also I wrote to TCL (because TCL buy Alcatel and because have the same phone but with other name S950) and don’t have idea about the Latino America model…. any one know where I can found the LatinoAmerica model? (has the same 3G network but with the plus of the 1900mhz what I need)
