Back to the market with some affordably priced device with the latest designs
Today, Alcatel invited us to attend the launch of new products – specifically the Alcatel 5V, Alcatel 1 and Alcatel 3L as they attempt to make a mark in the mobile phone market industry once again. Let’s take a dive into these new devices and what they’re looking to offer.
First up, we have the Alcatel 5V, the latest and newest from the brand. It even comes equipped with a notch on its 6.2-inch HD+ display, along with a 19:9 display ratio. Performance wise, it runs on a MediaTek MTK6762 processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. Luckily, you can expand the storage with a microSD card of up to 128GB. For all your picture needs, it has a dual rear camera setup of 12-megapixel + 2-megapixel and an 8-megapixel front camera. The device is also powered with a 4,000 mAh battery that should be able to last you more than a day’s time. Alcatel has also opted to keep the 3.5mm headphone jack as well! You can also use facial recognition to unlock the device. It also runs on Android 8.1 right out of the box.
Secondly, they introduced us to the Alcatel 1, a device that is equipped with a 5.0-inch FullView display, and runs on a MediaTek MT6739 processor with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage that can be upgraded with a microSD card of up to 32GB.

Last but not least, we were also introduced to the Alcatel 3L. It sports a 5.5-inch HD+ display as well, and this time without the notch! Performance wise, you have a MediaTek MT6739 processor to power your games, as well as 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. You can also upgrade the storage with a microSD card of up to 128GB.
