One Touch addition uses 13.1-megapixel camera with autofocus, LED flash
Alcatel has launched another smartphone in its One Touch line of devices. The One Touch Idol X follows on from the Idol, Idol Ultra, and Scribe HD by combining a 5-inch 1920x1080-resolution IPS display with a quad-core 1.5GHz processor and 2GB of RAM, all inside a body measuring 140.4mmx67.5mm (5.5x2.7 inches) and just 6.9mm (0.27 inches) thick.
On the back of the Android Jelly Bean 4.2-powered One Touch Idol X is a 13.1-megapixel camera with autofocus and an LED flash, with a 2-megapixel version on the front. The single-SIM version will have 8GB of storage, while the dual-SIM model will use 6GB, though both can be upgraded by up to 32GB of external memory. A 2,000mAh battery is claimed to provide up to 12 hours of talk time on 3G, while GPS, Bluetooth, MicroUSB, an FM Radio, and 3G connectivity is also included.
While the release schedule and price for the One Touch Idol X remain unknown, it is confirmed as heading to the United Kingdom in the future.
