Alcatel 3L: Bringing improved low-light camera performance to affordable smartphones
With the triple-camera setup on the Alcatel 3L, getting an affordable phone no longer means you need to sacrifice on imaging performance. The 48MP AI main rear sensor is capable of delivering videos in low light conditions and high-resolution photos thanks to the built-in 4-in-1 big pixel technology that combines four pixels into a larger 1.6μm 12MP image to increase light sensitivity. It also utilizes AI algorithms to automatically identify up to 22 different scenes, optimizing the image based on its category.
Additionally, a 5MP camera is equipped with a 115° super wide-angle lens, allowing users to capture as much of the scene as possible, and a 2MP rear camera with macro lens to take close-up photos in incredible detail. Also, the 8MP front camera with LCD flash allows for top class photos for users.
The Alcatel 3L also introduces a new design called Aurora, which features micro texture laser etching technology on a shimmering gradient back design. This approach enables each phone to exhibit a variety of different colors using spectacular shifting patterns that resemble the Aurora Borealis, the mysterious Northern Lights.
Designed with an expansive 6.22-inch HD+ Vast display, the Alcatel 3L provides users with vivid visuals. Alcatel 3L makes media come to life with a 19:9 aspect ratio that provides an immersive large-screen experience that fits comfortably in their pocket. Its highly efficient Octa-core processor, 4GB RAM and 64GB built-in storage help the phone handle the most resource-demanding content with ease, so you can stream HD videos, take photos and play games without interruptions. A large all-day battery will easily get you through your daily routine and more.
The Alcatel 3L will be available in select markets in Europe, in Q1 2020 at prices starting from €139, in Chameleon Blue and Dark Chrome.
Alcatel 1S: A powerful triple-camera smartphone for under €99
With a triple camera, powerful performance and a great viewing experience, the Alcatel 1S definitely delivers essential smartphone experiences and the most mainstream technologies to more people. The smartphone hosts a 13MP + 5MP + 2MP triple rear camera, serving high quality photos. Powered by AI, the 13MP camera uses 22 types of scene detection which automatically adjusts camera settings when taking photos. Additionally, the 5MP camera with bokeh provides portrait mode for visually appealing photos with a ‘background blur’ to focus on the subject. Capture photos of small plants, animals and insects, without missing details by using the 2MP macro camera.
Thanks to an octa-core processor and day-long battery, the Alcatel 1S will keep up with hours of streaming music, HD video and uninterrupted gaming. Users will also enjoy an immersive viewing experience with the 6.22-inch HD+ Vast display. Much like the Alcatel 3L, the ethereal Aurora design approach on the Alcatel 1S gives the phone a unique feel, complete with an elegant S-curve design.
The Alcatel 1S will be available in select markets in Europe in Q1 2020 starting from €99, in Agate Green and Power Gray.
