A couple of Alcatel state employees: an interesting Alcatel 1X (2019) and a cheap Alcatel 1C (2019)

The company TCL Communication officially presented the Alcatel 1 2019 smartphones shown at CES 2019 in Las Vegas in Moscow.

Alcatel's “one” is a combination of modestcharacteristics, budget price tag and Full View screen. There is no need to compare new products with the flagships, but they promise to be rather interesting as inexpensive devices. Entry-level devices - the right thing.

Alcatel 1X (2019)

Alcatel 1X (2019) successfully combines very sensiblespecifications. A 4G-class smartphone just above the initial one was not lucky to equip it with a decent screen - 5.5 ″ with a resolution of 720 × 1440 pixels, protected by 2.5D glass of Dragontrail, and a good battery (3000 mAh).
A basic chipset, but there’s no otherwaited, and MediaTek MT6739WW at least fresh. RAM 2 GB - normal. The drive is small - 16 GB, but even here it would be strange to want more. The possibility of expansion of memory is provided.

The main camera is double, 13 MP + 2 MP,interpolated to 16 MP. Supported shooting with the effect of bokeh, changing the object of focus, time-lapse video, provides electronic stabilization during video shooting. Front camera 5 MP with interpolation up to eight.

The device is pleasant in appearance and, they say, non-slip, which is also important. On the Russian market, a black and blue version will appear; for some reason, the pink one did not dare to bring it here, which is a pity it is funny.

The smartphone is equipped with a fingerprint scanner andsupports face unlock function. The older version (5008Y) also has NFC support, and it is she who officially enters the Russian market with a recommended price tag of 7990 rubles.

Alcatel 1C (2019)

Alcatel 1C (2019) - the device is simpler, but cheaper. The recommended price for the Russian market is 4990 rubles.

The device is compact - 5-inch screen, resolution480 × 960 pixels. The chipset is probably one of the most modest of the most current today - Spreadtrum SC7731E. 4G networking is not supported. The capacity of RAM is 1 GB, 8-gigabyte drive.

The battery is modest - 2000 mAh.

The main camera is interpolated up to 8 MP from five and does not have autofocus.

All this is quite logically controlled by Android 8.1 Oreo Go edition - a full version on such a device would be uncomfortable.
