TCL-owned Alcatel is expected to launch a bunch of new smartphones in 2018. A few out of which are likely to get unveiled at the CES (Consumers Electronics Show) next week.
One of the upcoming smartphones that has already received its approval from the FCC (Federal Communications Commission) is the Alcatel 5. On the FCC site, we have seen some images of the device, revealing its design. Now, reliable tipster Evan Blass has taken to Twitter to post a render of the smartphone. It is worth noting that the images from both the source look the same except for the color.
The above image shows the Alcatel 5 in a Pink colored chassis. The smartphone appears to sport a brush metal rear panel. At the front, we can also the presence of two selfie cameras placed at the top bezel. Quite unusually, while the top bezel is pretty thick, the bezels on the bottom and sides of the display are really narrow.
Due to lack of space at the front, the smartphone doesn't feature a physical home button. At the back, the Alcatel 5 has a single camera that is accompanied by a LED flash. A fingerprint scanner is also there just beneath the LED flash.
If rumors are to be believed, the Alcatel 5 will be launched as a high-end smartphone. FCC listing of the device has already revealed that it will pack a standard 3,000mAh battery to keep the lights on.
Coming to the rest of the specifications, the upcoming smartphone is said to be powered by an octa-core MediaTek MT6750 processor. It is also likely to arrive with a 5.7-inch display and Android 7.0 Nougat operating system. The Alcatel 5 is also expected to be available in color options like Black and White.
Well, as of now, this is pretty much everything we know about the Alcatel 5. Hopefully, more details about the smartphone will emerge in the following days. Other than the Alcatel 5, the company is also expected to announce the launch of Alcatel 1X, 3, 3C, 3V, 3X around the same time. Either it will be at the CES or at the MWC (Mobile World Congress) in February.
