One would say that Alcatel is trying to break a record for a number of phones announced in the shortest time. Since the beginning of this year, the company has announced 15 new smartphones. The first 13 were unveiled at Consumer Electronics Show last month and then two more a couple of days ago at World Mobile Congress. Wait a minute. Make it 17, since new ones are on the way – the Alcatel One Touch Snap and One Touch Snap LTE.
Alcatel One Touch Snap vs. Snap LTE
The Alcatel One Touch Snap features a 4.5-inch qHD touch screen with 540 x 960 resolution, an 8 megapixel rear camera with LED flash and 720p video recording, and a 1.3 megapixel front camera also capable of shooting 720p videos. At the heart of the handset you will find a quad-core 1.2 GHz processor beating along 1 GB of RAM. There is also 4 GB of memory, with approximately 2.4 GB available to the user, microSD slot for storage expansion, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and a 1,800 mAh battery which according to Alcatel should provide up to 7 hours of 3G talk time and 340 hours of standby time. The phone runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and should hit the stores some time in April.
Surprisingly, the Alcatel One Touch Snap LTE model differs from its brother in a number of areas. To begin with it is bigger and sports a 4.65-inch display, though with a lower resolution of just 480 x 854 pixels. The 8 megapixel camera records 1080p videos and there is a 2 megapixel shooter on the front. The handset is powered by a dual-core 1.4 GHz Snapdragon and runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. The good news is that it comes with a larger 2200 mAh battery inside. The Snap LTE should be available in July.
