    On carefully analyzing the image it does suggest that one or even all of the handsets could come with a modular design and colorful LED panel. Reports have further revealed that this colorful LED panel or the lighting up mod could be beat-responsive and sync with music in a manner similar to the JBL Pulse.

    Similarly, Alcatel may also include other modules that will offer added functionality and at the same time help enhance camera, sound, battery life, and other features of the smartphone. However, details about the modules have been kept secret by Alcatel.
