Smaller than its 5.5-inch sibling, the 4.7-inch version goes on sale Friday in the U.S. and Canada for $199.99.
Alcatel launched its phablet-sized 5.5-inch OneTouch Idol 3 smartphone in April. But folks looking for a handset to fit in their pocket were put on holduntil now.
The smaller, 4.7-inch device is set to go on sale Friday in the U.S. and Canada, available for $199.99.
The 4.7-inch has a similar design to its big sibling and the same 5- and 13-megapixel cameras and JBL Audio front-facing speakers. But it comes with a 1,280-by-720 display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, 16GB of storage with a memory card slot, 1.5GB of RAM, and a 2,000mAh battery.
It also runs Android Lollipop 5.0.2, and features an always-up UI, no matter which way you flip the phone.
Starting Aug. 14, consumers can visit the U.S. or Canada-based Alcatel OneTouch online shop to pick up the Idol 3 4.7-inch unlocked smartphone for $199.99. It will also be available via Alcatel’s official Amazon Store.
The 5.5-inch model is currently on sale for a discounted $249.99.
The device comes shortly after Motorola revealed an updated Moto G, which sells for $179.99 unlocked. For more, see PCMag’s roundup of The Best Unlocked Phones.
