What's This?

A few days ago, Alcatel’s secret Idol 4 and Alcatel 4s specifications and features were leaked online; whether it was accidental or deliberate, we may never know. However, the saga of the leaking Idol 4s features and specs are far from over.  As this week, another leak has gone online and is attracting attention.


The latest investment of the mobile brand has a press photo of the Alcatel Idol 4s device leaked. Gizmodo reports that the photo has been leaked by known online leaker Evan Blass. Basing on the images seen, the new Alcatel mobile phone will come packaged in a certified Google Cardboard VR viewer. The plastic packaging is supposedly hiding lenses and a headband inside so once bought, the user can just start trying virtual reality out of the box, literally!

Earlier, some of Alcatel Idol 4s’ features were leaked on some sites including Android Police which is probably one of the firsts to share the accidentally shared Alcatel page. The page was seen on the company’s support page where specs and features of upcoming Idol 4 and 4s phones where shared. The page was taken immediately after but not before several people has seen and several sites has gotten screenshots of the page then shared online.

Considering the specs of the past phones and including the Idol 4, which is going out at the same time, 4s according to Venture Beat, is undoubtedly has the highest and best specs that the company has ever made. What with Alcatel Idol 4S having a 5.5 inch screen with a quad HD Super Amoled display to begin with.

4s will also have an Android 6.0 OS with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 652 octa core processor under the hood along with 3GB RAM and an internal storage of 32GB that can be expanded via microSD card of up to 512GB. The main rear camera will be 16 megapixel with f2.0 aperture lens while its secondary front “selfie” camera is 8 megapixel and is flash assisted. It will be powered by a 3000 mAh battery.

Alcatel One Touch is currently ranked as the fifth largest cellphone brand in North America. It started out as a joint venture of companies Alcatel-Lucent from France and TCL Corporation from China who is the major shareholder. Later on TCL bought all the shares from its partner and became the sole owner of the brand. It decided to retain the brand name instead of changing t like some does for marketing purposes.
