Alcatel is a company that arrives on the market with pretty decent smartphones, but when it comes to the design used we can’t say a lot about the company’s products. However, today we get the chance to know more about the Alcatel OneTouch X1, a device that was canceled by the Chinese producer, one that seems to be the most attractive Alcatel phone until now.
As you can see, this phone looks a lot like the budget-phone OnePlus X that was launched two months ago. We’re getting an uni-body casing with metallic frame and glass surfaces, a 2.5D glass protection applied above the display and a physical home button that remembers a lot of the iPhone 6/6s TouchID button.
From the specs point of view, this device comes with a 5-inch Super AMOLED HD display (1280 x 720 pixels), with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor + an Adreno 405 GPU. Inside we get 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB space of internal storage + microSD card slot, a 13-megapixel rear camera with f/2.2 aperture and a 5-megapixel front-facing sensor with f/2.0 aperture.
Alcatel OneTouch X1 also packs a 2150 mAh battery, 4G LTE connectivity and Android 5.1.1 Lollipop as default operating system. As for dimensions, this phone weighs 142 grams and measures 6.9 mm in thickness, similar to OnePlus X (138 grams / 6.9 mm).
Leaving this aspect behind, we get to know that this phone was expected to be priced at just $218, an even accessibile price tag compared to OnePlus X. Unfortunately we don’t know the reason behind Alcatel’s decision to cancel this attractive smartphone..
