Alcatel launched its selfie-focused phone in India, Alcatel One Touch Flash. It will be up for sale at Flipkart after Friday at a price of only Rs.9999/-. This would be the first phone from this company to compete against the other selfie-focused phones.
It features a 5 MP front facing camera. This phone was released in Thailand in the month of September and was named as Alcatel One Touch Flash (6042D).
The phone features a dual-SIM support and runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat. It features a 5.5-inch HD with a pixel resolution of 720×1280 pixels IPS display. It runs on an Octa-core 1.4GHz MediaTek MTK6592M processor and has been provided with 1GB of RAM. This is certainly a very sluggish combination.
What’s more that is given along with the 5 MP camera is that the One Touch Flash boasts of a 13MP autofocus rear camera with LED flash. It has an internal memory of 8GB and can be expanded upto 32GB using a microSD card.
The Alcatel One Touch Flash has been loaded with connectivity options such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPRS/ EDGE, GPS and 3G. The battery rating of the device is 3200mAh. The phone weighs about 150 grams.
The phone will be available in two colour options namely grey and white.
To make things interesting Alcatel has also announced a ‘Selfie Contest’ wherein the top 20 winners get Rs. 1,000 off on the price.
The competition faced by this phone in this particular segment is a serious one against big players. The Nokia Lumia 730 and the SONY Xperia C3 are the top most amongst them. However the price of this phone is what can make it win the race.
