Having announced no less than 13 devices last month at Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Alcatel obviously has more surprises up its sleeve. Today at World Mobile Congress in Barcelona, the Chinese company announced more smartphones. One of them, the Alcatel One Touch Idol X, is possibly going to be Alcatel’s flagship offering for this year. The other device is the Alcatel One Touch Scribe Easy, advertised as the “perfect canvass for capturing flashes of genius on the move”.
Alcatel One Touch Idol X vs. Scribe Easy
The Alcatel One Touch Idol X features a 5-inch 1080p Full HD touch screen with incredibly narrow bezels and is powered by a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor. There is also a 13 megapixel camera and 16 GB of internal storage and the phone ships with the latest version of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. Some may find the 2,000 mAh battery a bit disappointing, but then again you could not expect too much juice from a 7.1 mm-thin device. Unfortunately, the One Touch Idol X lacks 4G LTE connectivity.
The second offering, the Alcatel One Touch Scribe Easy, also packs a 5-inch display but with much lower resolution of just 480 x 800 pixels. The phone is driven by a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor accompanied by 512 MB of RAM and offers 4 GB of internal memory expandable via microSD card slot and a 5 megapixel camera on the back. Running Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, the handset comes with a stylus that allows you to handwrite on the screen, make notes and more. The phone ships pre-loaded with dedicated creative apps and magnetic MagicFlip cover.
