A design and a battery above average

The first thing that catches the attention of this model is its finish. It is designed in plastic but imitating the glass with mirror effect in the back area. In addition, its front has quite small frames and the top notch stands out.

The second thing that attracts attention is its battery, nothing less than 4000 mAh, a figure that is not usually seen in smartphones, and less in this category.

Dual camera with AI

The camera system chosen by Alcatel opts for a double sensor in the rear area of ​​12 Mpx and 2 Mpx. The main one has an aperture f / 2.2 and the secondary one 2.4, although it will only be used to perform portrait mode effectively. By interpolation we can reach 16 Mpx. The front camera has 8 Mpx and has face unlock.

This mobile incorporates real-time AI scene detection to, through algorithms, select the most appropriate settings for different scenes: portrait, night light, gastronomy, animals, plants, text, beach, blue skies, backlight, etc.

Elongated display

The rest of the benefits are more or less conventional, even somewhat scarce. The processor is a Mediatek chip with eight 1.5 GHz cores. It has 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of internal memory.

The screen is 6.2 inches and has an HD + resolution of 1500 x 720 px, with a 19: 9 ratio.

Includes microUSB connector, fingerprint sensor in the rear area, FM radio and even NFC
