TCL Communication today announced the Alcatel 3V (2019), an affordable smartphone offered to several operators in North America. The Alcatel 3V (2019) is an Android device with a large HD + Full View 6.7-inch display, a 4000 mAh battery, an Octa-Core MediaTek MT6762 processor, two rear cameras with depth sensor and stereo speakers.
The smartphone will also come with Google Assistant preinstalled. There is a fingerprint sensor on the back of the phone. The processor is supported by 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of external storage. It’s pretty weak, but it’s expandable via microSD up to 32GB, giving you what’s today an entry-level 64GB internal storage size. The phone will launch with Android 9 Pie.
The manufacturer claims that its fast Pump Express + charge is capable of generating up to six hours of battery life in just 20 minutes. There is also an integrated battery saving mode and a Smart Manager function to better manage power consumption. Charging is done via USB-C. The Alcatel 3V (2019) will soon arrive in Canada on Freedom Mobile and in the United States on Metro by T-Mobile.
No official pricing has been published yet. So we do not know how “affordable” really means.
