Alcatel unveiled the whole new lineup of One Touch devices today on MWC floors, which includes the One Touch Idol 2, Idol Mini 2, Idol Mini 2 S and One Touch Pop Fit.
Starting with the One Touch Idol 2, we can say it’s the biggest of the bunch, and also the most potent of them all. On its front side you will find a gorgeous 5-inch HD display, which is a really pleasant thing to look at. But the Idol 2 has something to offer on the inside too. It has a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, 8GB memory for the single-SIM version and 16GB storage for the dual-SIM variant. The latter model excludes the sdcard expansion slot though. The One Touch Idol 2 has an 8MP primary shooter and 2MP front-facing camera. It’s really thin and light, measuring only 7.3mm in thickness and 128g of weight. It runs on Android 4.2.2 Jellybean, but a KitKat update is on its way.
Next, the One Touch Idol Mini 2 is a smaller version of the One Touch Idol 2, just as its name says. It packs a 4.5-inch qHD display, 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1GB RAM, and either 4GB or 8GB storage for the single-SIM and dual-SIM models respectively. It’s fair to point out that just like its larger brother, the Idol Mini 2 dual-SIM omits the microSD card slot.
Following the One Touch Idol Mini 2 is the Idol Mini 2 S, which is basically a LTE variant of the smartphone. Apart from that, the two smartphones are virtually the same, save for the metal back casing of the Idol Mini 2 S. They both run on Android 4.3 Jellybean and will taste KitKat in near future.
And finally, the One Touch Pop Fit is the last smartphone that is left to be covered. It’s really, really small, featuring a 2.8-inch QVGA display. The rest of its specs include a 1GHz processor, 512MB RAM, 1000mAh battery and 16 or 32GB storage.
The One Touch Idol Mini 2 will start selling in March for $169, while the Idol Mini 2 S will ship for $209. The One Touch Pop Fit will set you back $89 in May.
