Alcatel may have released a couple of devices in the course of the year, but hasn’t uttered a word on what its plan for the remaining part of the year and possibly an early quarter of 2018 hold for its fans. However, some couple of Alcatel branded smartphones has just surfaced revealing the devices in full glory. This is a possible indication that we should expect to see one or two Alcatel phones in the first quarter of 2018.
Six different Alcatel phones labelled as Alcatel 5, Alcatel 3X, Alcatel 3V, Alcatel 3, Alcatel 3C and Alcatel 1X has appeared on online. The leaked images reveal nothing much other than the names, camera setups, fingerprint placement as well as the display front showing amount of bezels present in each model.
From the leaked images, it appears just a few of the devices feature a dual rear camera. Specifically, the Alcatel 3Vand 3X appears to have the dual rear camera in a vertical setup, a LED flash beside and a fingerprint sensor just below. Upfront, the Alcatel 3V and 3X seem to have minimal bezels on both sides while there are enough bezels on both the chin and the forehead to accommodate speakers and front-facing camera.
Talking about the Alcatel 3 and 3C, both got a single rear camera with only the former having a fingerprint sensor below. Bezels are still present both side and minimal on the chin and top. Finally, the Alcatel 1X and Alcatel 5 appears to feature a similar single rear camera with LED flash and a large bezels upfront.
While our source claims these devices are Alcatel 2018 top-tier lineup, there actually seems to be nothing spectacular about these devices especially in designs, however, more details about these devices are expected to surface in due course.
