Alcatel 5, The Alcatel 5 is TCL’s Newest Mid-Ranger (or Flagship?), Gadget Pilipinas

Apart from the budget-oriented 3-series handsets, TCL also announced the brand’s newest “flagship”, though I’m not really sure how they define that word, since the new Alcatel 5’s specs are mostly from the mid-range book.

In any case, let’s leave them be and focus on the phone. It has a 5.7-inch, 18:9 HD+ IPS display, and is powered by the MediaTek MT6750 octa-core processor. I know, it’s an odd choice given that there’s a bunch of newer chips out there. There’s 2GB/4GB of RAM, and 16GB/32GB of storage with microSD card support.

The Alcatel 5 uses a 12MP sensor at the back with features like EIS, Light Trace, Slow Motion, and Video Story, complimented by a dual front-camera system composed of a 13MP main sensor, complimented by a 5MP sensor.  The device runs on Android 7.0 Nougat, and packs a 3,000mAh battery.

Other features include Dual SIM capability, Bluetooth 4.2, FM Radio, NFC, and a fingerprint sensor. Alcatel’s Face Key feature, which is basically their own implementation of Face Unlock, is also present.

The Alcatel 5 comes in Metallic Black and Metallic Gold, and retails for €230, which is I think a bit too much for what it offers.

  • 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6750 octa-core processor
