The Alcatel 3 comes with a 5.5-inch, FullView 18:9 IPS display, Face Key unlock and boasts both a fingerprint sensor and a sleek 2.5D contoured edge glass body. With Android Go, the low-end smartphone comes with Google's new suite of pre-installed apps including Google Go, Files Go, Google Maps Go, YouTube Go, and Gmail Go. The company also launched two tablets exclusively designed for kids. The 114 grams weighing phone measures 152.3 x 71.1 x 8.4 mm. It has a 5-megapixel rear camera sensor and a 2-megapixel front camera sensor. It has a 5.3 inch display, a 13/8 MP camera (depending on region), a 5 MP selfie camera, quad core processor, 1 GB RAM, 16 GB of internal storage and a micro SD card slot.
On the front is the 5.3-inch FWVGA+ (960 x 480 pixels) display with 18:9 aspect ratio. They all have quad-core MediaTek processors and facial recognition features (though in all cases, Alcatel isn't using anything as fancy - and likely as reliable - as Apple's Face ID). Fortunately, the Alcatel 3V is running Android 8.0 Ore out of the box.
The handset comes in two variants: either 32GB of internal storage with 3GB of RAM or 16GB of internal storage and 2GB of RAM. The 3V is €190, the 3X is €180 and the entry-level model 3 is €150.The 3V has a rear-facing dual-lens camera system and costs less than the 5 series model. The device is one of the few to sport dual front-facing camera lenses - a 13-megapixel primary shooter and a super wide-angle 5-megapixel lens with LED flash. The phone is now available in select markets, in Metallic Black or Metallic Gold, for 229.99 Euro ($283).
The larger of the slates is, predictably, the most impressive, coming with a 10-inch HD display, 4000mAh battery and (surprisingly) the latest Android 8.1 Oreo operating system.
Rounding out the Alcatel 5′s feature set is a 3,000mAh battery, fingerprint reader, and Android Nougat. It runs Android Oreo out-of-the-box.More news: Russian Federation wins men's ice hockey gold with 'golden goal'

Alcatel say that the 2K (2160x1080) resolution display here will make the 3V the best option for those seeking more "immersive viewing" experiences.
But one model runs full-on Android Oreo.
Alcatel has announced the launch of the Alcatel 5, 1X, and 3-series smartphones well ahead of the MWC 2018.
The Alcatel 3 series actually includes three different models. It is backed by a 2460mAh battery that is rated to give up to 26 hours of talk time. These devices come for less than €100 for the single SIM variant and €110 for the dual-SIM variant. Stay tuned on PhoneRadar for more details!
