Orange debuted Nura recently, a product that’s as much French as it is Chinese. It’s actually made by Alcatel under the One Touch brand, which means it’s in fact the product of Chinese company TCL, that owns Alcatel.
We’re dealing with a 5.5 inch phablet here, that looks quite solid and offers 4G connectivity. Nura provides a 1280 x 720 pixel resolution, a Snapdragon 400 processor and 1 GB of RAM, so these are modest specs. Then there’s a 16 GB internal memory, a 3100 mAh battery, a microSD card slot and a main 8 megapixel camera. Finally, Orange Nura also brings a front 2 MP camera and Android 4.4.2 KitKat as the OS.
The price for the Nura is a bit less than 200 euros on Orange’s shops in France. There’s also the option to buy it for 1 euro, with contract. I can see that this model is quite wide, it sports capacitive buttons and seems to have a soft touch back. Its bezels are quite narrow.
