Alcatel are busy showing off some great looking phones at IFA the most exciting being the Alcatel One Touch Hero with E-ink flip case!
The 6-inch Alcatel One Touch Hero is aimed at users who want the features of a Galaxy Note but with 1080 resolution and a lower price tag. As such the Hero has comes complete with a stylus and apps which are designed to work specifically with the capacitive pen.
Keeping costs down but ensuring enough power to run that large, high-resolution panel is a 1.5Ghz quad-core MT6589T processor from Mediatek and 2GB RAM. The processor is the same you would find in similar Chinese phones and as such it will support dual SIM cards, but only for the top of the range 16GB model (a cheaper 8GB version has a single SIM).
Other nice features of this stylish 1080 phablet include a rather larger 3400mAh battery, 13 mega-pixel rear camera, 2 megapixel front and SD card slot.
Alcatel have also created a rather exciting flip case for the One Touch Hero which incorporates an E-ink display. This allows you to check certain apps and read books, messages on the low-power E-ink display extending the overall run time of the phone.
