alcatel flash plus 2

It’s been a while since we last heard from Alcatel (and TCL) but the brand are still in business and today have just announced news of a new all metal phone.

To the best of our knowledge this is the first all metal phone from Alcatel (in fact we don’t remember an Alcatel/TCL with even a metal chassis).

The new model will be called the Flash Plus 2 and will feature a 5.5-inch FHD OGS display, 3000mAh battery and fast charging technology.

Mediatek provide a Helio P10 chipset, and the phone will come in either 2GB + 16GB or 3GB + 32GB memory options, with both models having support for up to 128GB SD cards.

Gizchina News of the week

Like many other new smartphones the Alcatel Flash Plus 2 has a fingerprint scanner, this time in a physical button on the chin of the phone. There is also a 5 mega-pixel front camera and 13 mega-pixel rear with dual LED flash.

Pricing is actually very good with the phone costing from $160 for the basic version rising to only $190 for the 3GB RAM model. Best of all the Alcatel Flash Plus 2 will officially go on sale in the Philippines, Malaysia, Monaco and Thailand to start with other markets coming soon.

    Well if they do things right this could be a nice midranger that would be available for regular in land purchase (in most of the market’s including & on contract and with 2 years warranty) that would come with good camera (remembering original Flash) & with decent costumer & software support. I don’t like the choice of the SoC but pricing is not bad & it’s certainly better than UMI Super. Design is something we would consider as boring standard in industry this day’s but it does look good & practical.

      Chassis and borders were made of metal, front and back of plastic.
      BTW it was the first (and only ?) reversible phone.
