While everyone is very busy admiring the beautiful Samsung Galaxy S8, Alcatel went ahead and released something rather new. Obviously, many have heard of dual-camera phones like the LG G5 and the Apple iPhone 7 Plus. However, not a lot have heard of a quad-camera phone. The idea is still quite juvenile, nevertheless, Alcatel pushed on and released the Alcatel Flash.
Ever since the mobile phone camera was first introduced in the early 2000s, things have changed. For a time, the trend was to update the imaging sensor with newer and better resolution cameras. At the time, cameras on mobile devices are predominantly situated at the back of the device. This makes for an awkward pose everyone tries to take a selfie.
A few years after that, some phone makers thought of putting a separate camera at the front of the mobile device to make it easier to take selfies. Afterwards, mobile phone manufacturers added another camera sensor at the back of their devices to make imaging much better. However, it would seem like Alcatel is trying to outdo everyone by introducing the very first quad-camera phone, the Alcatel Flash.
The Alcatel Flash is not just any ordinary phone. First of all, as mentioned earlier, it has a total of four cameras. Two of which are 13-megapixel sensors at the back of the device. The other two, are front facing ones and have an 8-megapixel and 5-megapixel resolutions.
While this may sound like an overkill, the rest of the hardware specs are not too shabby at all. To start off, there is a ten-core MediaTek Helio X20 SoC inside it. The chip is paired with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of flash storage. Unfortunately, the battery is only 3,100mAh which, to say the least, is not big enough for its 5.5-inch Full HD IPS screen.
Alcatel has yet to release the availability and pricing for the Alcatel Flash. For more updates on the Alcatel Flash, be sure to check us out at TheBitbag.
