Are you listening, people? Alcatel’s cheaper and smaller phone – Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 – will be available in the U.S. and Canada starting this Friday. After the 5.5-inch phablet gained popularity and was loved for being an excellent mid-ranged phone, the brand has been planning to launch another budget phablet that would be easier to carry around. So, here is the 4.7-inch OneTouch Idol 3, as promised by the company.
- 720 x 1080 pixels display
- 7 inch screen
- 13 megapixel rear camera, 5 MP front camera
- Android OS, v5.0 Lollipop
- Snapdragon 410, 1.5GB RAM
- 2,000 mAh Li-Ion Battery
- Sensors: Accelerometer, Proximity, Compass
When you sit down to compare OneTouch Idol 3 with any other smartphone or tablet, you would not find this phone lagging behind in features.
Where to buy Alcatel’s OneTouch Idol 3?
You can buy this phablet on the brand’s Amazon store. As mentioned above, priced at $179.99, this tablet phone would be available in the store for sale from August 14.
Comes with an update to fix Stagefright bug
We know how companies are trying hard to fix the Stagefright bug since it was first noticed. To protect its users from the bug, Alcatel’s OneTouch Idol 3 runs on Android 5.0.2 will send you a security update to download that can fix this bug as soon as you switch on your device.
This is one of the best features that would spike the sales of this tablet, as Android users have been clueless about what to do about this bug that can damage their system through one single message, even if left unopened.
Alcatel’s OneTouch Idol 3 is definitely a smart choice. It will not just save you dollars, but it will offer you an excellent product that may not disappoint.
