Revealed as a mid-range device, this new phone from the Alcatel Flash family is set to make waves starting since yesterday – releasing across Asian markets. Sold through its exclusive partners, it’ll be available in South East Asia through Lazada and via Flipkart for consumers in India.
Soon to be available in Malaysia from the 15th of October, the Flash 2 boasts a 64-bit capable Octa-core 1.3GHz MediaTek MT6753 processor that’s mated to 2GB of RAM, which is fitting as it occupies the mid-range table. Some comparisons can be drawn with the LEAGOO Elite 1 that was just launched today as well; as both devices share the same MediaTek computing all its processes. The Flash 2’s screen is a 5-inch 720p IPS display, while there is 16GB onboard internal memory that can be expanded up to an additional 128GB.
Although it doesn’t stand out in terms of processing power, Alcatel OneTouch has chosen to highlight the device’s camera capabilities instead. Equipped with a “gSight” 13-megapixel Samsung Isocell rear sensor, it has phase detection autofocus, dual-tone dual-LEDs for flash and an aperture of f/2.0; the front however, carries a 5-megapixel wide angel (84 degrees) shutter, together with another LED flash on its side.
Coming in either Volcanic Grey or Mica White colour options, the Flash 2 also comes with Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box and supports dual-SIM LTE slots for those who have two cellular lines. Rounding it off, the device will be powered by a 3,000 mAh battery that they’ve promised will last you through the day. Alcatel OneTouch has held back pricing for now but we’re likely to hear a follow-up announcement from them once they release the device in the Malaysian market.
