Alcatel Onetouch Idol and Hero phones rolled out for India

After launching the Onetouch Idol X+ in India back in May, Alcatel has brought in its 6-inch Hero phablet and new additions to the Idol series. The handsets in the Idol range come in sizes of 4.3 to 5 inches with prices ranging between Rs 10000 and Rs 30000.

The OEM hasn’t mentioned the names of the new Idol devices, but they’re definitely going to be the X, S and mini models which went official last year. These phones are also the most recent additions to the series. The Alcatel Onetouch Idol X is basically a toned down version of the X+ and was launched much before the latter.

The smartphone features a 5-inch 1080p FHD touchscreen. A 1.5GHz quad core processor, 2GB RAM, a 13MP rear camera, dual SIM slota and a 2000mAh battery. Coming to the Idol S, the handset is just 7.4mm thick and it offers a 4.7-inch 720p HD IPS display with a 1.2GHz dual core processor delivering the steam.

All of the new Idol handsets run on Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and so does the Onetouch Hero.
