Alcatel recently announced their new smartphone lineup for 2018, featuring some capable devices for not a lot of money. These smartphones also feature the company’s new universal design language, which means that potential buyers won’t suffer through crappy designs just because they chose a lower-end model.
The new devices feature an 18:9 aspect ratio, which we’ve seen from Samsung‘s and LG‘s line of flagship smartphones. On the topic of displays, TCL, who makes designs and manufactures Alcatel devices, will be providing the panels.
Alcatel’s 5 Series is set to be the company’s flagship budget device, with a focus on performance while still keeping a considerable price point. The 5 Series is set to feature premium materials, face unlocking, and a battery that is expected to last all day. That being said, the company has not confirmed the specifications of the device just yet.
Moving on, there is the mid-tier 3 Series, which again offers the 18:9 display which can be described as “large and high-resolution.” Again, specs have not been confirmed yet, but there are rumors indicating that the Series 3 will include dual-cameras and a beautiful design.
Finally, there is the 1 Series, which will be the company’s most affordable lineup of smartphones. Face unlocking is expected to be on the device, but there is no word on specs just yet.
Alcatel is promising more details about their new smartphones when they fully announce them at Mobile World Congress, or MWC next month.
