Alcatel recently launched a number of devices at the IFA but it seems like the French OEM is on a roll off late. With Microsoft finally announcing the Windows 10 Mobile, Alcatel is one its way to become one of the first OEMs to come out with a mid-range Windows 10 Phablet.
According to a latest leak by serial tipster @evleaks, Alcatel is working on a 5.5 inch phablet with a HD (1280x720) screen dubbed the OneTouch Fierce XL. Despite being called a mid-ranger the Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL is said to come with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 SoC with cores clocked at 1.1 GHz each.
The specs may not seem pretty interesting for a mid-ranger especially for an Android device, but considering the fact that the alleged device runs on Windows 10 Mobile one can let the lack of CPU power pass.
Surprisingly though, the Alcatel Fierce XL comes with a 2GB of RAM. Quite an odd combo to say the least! In term of storage the OneTouch Fierce XL will feature a 16GB of onboard which can further be expanded via MicroSD card slots.
Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL for Windows: SD210 (4x1.1GHz), W10M, LTE, 5.5" 720P, 2GB/16GB, 8MP/2MP, 2500mAh, microSD, VoLTE, HDV. December.— Evan Blass (@evleaks) September 9, 2015
On the back of the device is an 8MP AF rear camera with LED flash. The front bears a 2MP front snapper. These are pretty common specs of a budget device these days.
To keep the processor humming under the hood, Alcatel is bundling in a 2500mAh battery, which will hopefully be enough to drive through a whole day of usage. The phone surprisingly though will not only support 4G LTE, but also VoLTE (Voice Over LTE).
Alcatel is rumoured to be launching this device first in USA. The success of this device will however depend on how well Alcatel prices the OneTouch Fierce XL. Going by the mid-ranger branding it is felt that Alcatel will be pricing it somewhere around $200 (approx.. Rs 12,000).
This will place the device in stiff competition from Windows counterparts like Lumia and BLU range of the devices in the America. Expect Alcatel to roll out the device to international markets soon enough.
