Alcatel Unveils Four Android Marshmallow Phones Starting from Just $80

Android Marshmallow

Recent times have seen Alcatel make some impressive steps in the smartphone world. One thing that the company has clearly maintained is the affordable pricing of its products and this is exactly what you get with the new Android Marshmallow phones it has just unveiled.

The four Alcatel phones, which come preinstalled with Android Marshmallow even though a newer version of Android Nougat is already here, are priced between $80 and $170, with the cheapest being the PIXI 4. Here’s a quick look at what Alcatel is offering with its new budget phones.

Alcatel POP 4S

Of the four phones, the Alcatel POP 4S is the priciest with a price tag of $170. For this, you get a full-metal body, a 5.5-inch Full HD screen, an octa-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz, a RAM of 2GB, 16GB expandable storage, a fingerprint scanner as well as a decent 2960mAh battery unit. You will also love the 13MP snapper on the back that features a dual-tone LED flash as well as the 5MP selfie camera, which also comes with a flash. There is Android Marshmallow out of the box alongside a number of preinstalled apps.

Alcatel POP 4 Plus

Alcatel POP 4 Plus is the second device in line, priced at just $119 (Best Buy has it for just $100). The phone has the same screen size as the POP 4S, but you get a 720p resolution. Furthermore, there is a weaker Snapdragon 210 SoC under the hood and 16GB of expandable storage. You get a capable 2500mAh battery unit and a decent 8MP snapper on the back. There is Android Marshmallow out of the box.

Alcatel PIXI 4 (6-inch and 5-inch)

The Alcatel PIXI is back again, but this time with two models. The PIXI 4 6-inch variant is the larger between the two, with the other having a 5-inch display size. However, you find the same quad-core chipsets on board, 720p display resolutions as well as Android Marshmallow out of the box, just like the others.

There is a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC on board alongside an 8MP/5MP camera combination. This phone has a price tag of $119. As expected, the smaller 5-inch PIXI 4 also comes with a smaller battery capacity and a similarly smaller price tag of just $80.

All four Alcatel phones can be bought from either Amazon or Best Buy.
