Android Go lands on hyper-cheap handset to usher in new era of smartphonestechnicalstudio | February 23, 2018 | 0 | Mobiles
Alcatel has once again unveiled a new range of smartphones at MWC, with the new Alcatel 5 the most impressive spec-wise, but the cheapest phone technically being the most innovative.
Before we get into the new range, the highlight of these phones isn’t really the spec sheet, but the price they come at – the specifications are decent, but they’re all a fraction of the cost of a Samsung Galaxy S8 or iPhone X.
With the Alcatel 1X, you’ll be able to experience the new Android Go platform, a new system from Google which cuts the app size down by half and offers new takes on things like Google Assistant to help entry-level phones thrive with less power on offer.
All the phones come with an 18:9 display to increase the screen-to-body ratio, which Alcatel is claiming as a first (to have a whole range of phones at differing price points using the FullView screen).
The new Alcatel 5 comes with a 5.7-inch HD+ display (which doesn’t seem to be Full HD), using IPS LCD technology to deliver better contrast ratio and color reproduction than standard panels.
