Alcatel One Touch Idol X

The Alcatel One Touch Idol X is the latest contender in the full HD display game and this piece of hardware comes with a slim form factor with high-end specifications. Like most flagships, a 5-inch touchscreen has been fitted onto the front for visuals, while a quad core processor takes charge from within to get things done quickly and efficiently.

The panel employed onto the One Touch Idol X is developed based on the AMOLED technology and it features a black crystal lens with a Dragontrail Glass protective layer to reduce the risk of scratches, and an oleophobic coating to keep the screen free from smudges as well as stains. Additionally, the front has a 2.4mm border surrounding the display which delivers an edge-to-edge visual experience.

Measuring 7mm in thickness, the handset is designed with a stylish appearance, delivering a balance of good looks and quality hardware. The device’s outer case is said to possess a sleek black chrome finish. 2GB of RAM assists the CPU in its operations, while 16GB of eMMC flash memory takes care of storage needs, albeit only 13.3GB is accessible to users. The hoarding capacity can be extended with up to 32GB more through a microSD card.


Snap-happy users will have an 8MP camera with AF and an LED flash on the rear as well as a 2.1MP front-facing snapper for video calling. On the connectivity front, the device comes with quad-band GSM and HSPA+ 42Mbps. Other features include Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Wi-Fi Display, AGPS and Bluetooth 4.0 with A2DP. The handset only supports microSIM cards and it will arrive in a dual SIM variant as well, so suggests the company. A single charge of the 2000mAh battery is capable of delivering 7 hours of talktime or 240 hours of standby over 3G.

The Alcatel One Touch Idol X is expected to be commercially available starting July 2013. Exact price and release date details are still under wraps along with the market locations where this handset will go on sale.
