Surely you remember those times, many years ago, when Alcatel was one of the most successful mobile phone manufacturers, delivering some popular cell-phones such as the One-Touch series. Well, Alcatel is still alive and kicking and has recently revealed details about the launching of two new Android running smartphones for joining the Idol family, the Alcatel One Touch Idol S and One Touch Idol Mini, each being made for suiting different areas of consumers.
The Idol S is here for those of you who need something faster and smarter than the average entry-level smartphone and also want a cute looking handset, with a slim 7.4 mm profile and handsome design. From the Idol S’s list of skills, the most important ones are a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, 4 GB of internal memory which can be expanded with a microSD card, 1 GB of RAM. For taking pictures, you have an 8 megapixels camera that records 1080p videos at 30 fps. The frontal part of the eye-catching body is occupied by a 4.7 inches IPS display that features a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels and a pixel density of 312 ppi.
If you aim for buying something from the entry-level area, the Idol Mini is here for bringing you a nice combination of features packed in a small and compact body, which will surely be available at a smaller price too. The Idol Mini holds inside a dual-core 1.3 GHz processor, 512 MB of RAM and comes in two flavors: the first one is a single SIM and hosts an internal memory of 4 GB which is expandable and the other one is a dual-SIM that has 8 GB of internal memory, but no microSD slot for expanding it. The Idol Mini is home for a 4.3 inches IPS display that has a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels and a 228 ppi pixel density.
Both smartphones come loaded with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and promise to offer you a satisfying user experience. They’re also looking quite nice and you’ll surely enjoy their youthful design and slim, lightweight body that is comfortable to manage with one hand and easy to slip into pockets.
The release date and pricing are still unknown for the moment.
