Alcatel to release 6″ One Touch Hero Phablet
At the IFA 2013, we have already seen big announcements like Xperia Z1 and many more yet to come and the Alcatel is one of the companies with a series of devices, including a high-end Android phablet named Alcatel One Touch Hero. The company has already introduced some smartphones, like One Touch Idol S and Idol Alpha at the IFA 2013, with the introduction of the One Touch Hero, Alcatle seems to be more serious about its role in the market.
The phablet with a huge display really seems to be taking on Galaxy Note series, with pretty much similar features like stylus support. The device is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core SoC and sports a 6″ IPS panel with 1920×1080 resolution, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP camera on the back and a 2MP snapper on the front for video call.
The device has 16 GB of internal storage and storage can be expanded via microSD slot. Backing all these features, there is a huge 3400 mAh battery inside.
Apart from these internals, the Alcatle has put more effort to attract consumers. Alcatle has also added a 12Lm pico projector add-on support to the device. The projector is claimed to be capable of projecting images larger than 70 inches, that should certainly give both business minded and entertainment-looking consumers a reason to consider the Idol Hero. The device also features a dedicated E-ink that will increase the battery life as well as giving your eyes a break from all these colorful world. There is also an alternative cover named MagicFlip which connects the tablet via a series of pins on the back and keep your updated with notifications. As the pico projector also connects via pins on the back, you will have to choose between these accessories. Finally there is a Bluetooth-enabled accessory phone, just like one seen along with Asus Eee Pad Memo tablet, which lets you answer calls and do all other stuffs that you do some featurephones, like receiving text messages, sync your phonebook and calendar entries, so that you won’t have to use the 6-incher for such needs.
Finally, price and availability. The company hasn’t reveled anything about the release date and price for the Alcatel One Touch Hero, but we will keep you posted once it is announced.
