Alcatel debuts latest smartphone portfolio at MWC


Nokia unveiled no less than five new phones at MWC this year, but besides all the new features and upgraded specs, it was notable that three of them joined the Android One program - that's Google's latest attempt to fight fragmentation on its platform. In the United States, there are many carriers who sell out the new flagship phones with easy monthly installments and an eye popping promotional offers.

That's where Android Go comes in.

The ZTE Tempo Go, like the Alcatel 1X Go, is a flawless candidate for the revamped OS.

This is the cheapest Alcatel smartphone of 2018, coming with a 5.3-inch display and 16GB of storage. It is a dual sim device with dual standby support. It's available this April in some markets for €179.99 or an estimated P11,539 and ships in metallic black, blue, and gold colors.

TCL also introduced the new Alcatel 1T tablets, in 7- and 10-inch Wi-Fi models running Android 8.

HMD Global has announced a bunch of new smartphone under its Nokia smartphones lineup. Although, there is a downside to using Android Oreo Go.

"Despite the presence of some general latency and animation lag, the Tempo Go felt more responsive than other entry-level phones I've used", said PC Mag mobile analyst Ajay Kumar. On the front, it has a 5-megapixel camera.

The FWVGA+ (960 x 480) resolution isn't razor sharp, but the screen is bright and clear, and it's still easy to read text and view pictures. As far as games go, obviously you're still limited by hardware, but the preinstalled Subway Surfers on the Tempo Go actually ran without major issues. Which should save you a pretty penny on your mobile bills.

According to the Turkish company, which now operates in 32 countries globally, the GM 8 Go will have a price tag that anyone in these countries can afford. You can learn more about the phone in our previous coverage. With this, the Lava Z50 will become the first Android Go smartphone in India. It comes with 8GB of internal storage, with micro SD expansion capabilities.

The best one? You ask!

The Nokia 1 has a smooth plastic shell and a pebble-like shape that fits nicely in the hand. The phone has 1 GB RAM and 8 GB of storage.

The partnership marks one of the firm's main initiatives of 2018, with a series of additional product announcement to be made throughout the year. The unit that we got to use at the WMC had 4.88 GB free space for the user to use, this might be a little more in the variant that the user gets on the purchase of the device. We will be back soon with some more detailed information regarding this article.

Although we can not guarantee this, our wish is that Xiaomi also comes aboard.
