Alcatel has silently launched its mid-range smartphone in the Indian market – Alcatel X1.
The phone comes with a 5-inch AMOLED display with screen resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels with Dragontail Glass protection at front and Gorilla Glass protection at back.
It is powered by a Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage.
There is a 13 MP rear facing auto focus camera with dual tone LED flash and f/2.2 aperture. It also has 5 MP front facing camera with f/2.0 aperture.
On the connectivity front, it supports Dual SIM, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS. It runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop operating system and is powered by a 2150mAh battery.
The Alcatel X1 is priced at Rs. 15,999 and is available through online retailers Flipkart and Amazon India.
While the phone has quite good design and has an aluminium frame, the specifications of the device falls short compared to other offerings in this price range.
In this price range, it will compete against the likes of Lenovo’s Zuk Z1, Xiaomi’s Redmi Note 3 and recently launched Yu Yunicorn.
