Almost all of the big mobile devices brands in the world have augmented the multimedia experience of their products and alcatel, one of the world’s fastest-growing smartphone brands, is upping the ante in the Philippines’ smartphone industry with the launch of IDOL 4S + VR and two more of the latest mobile devices, MOVE TIME TRACK & TALK watch and PLUS 10 with 4G LTE Keyboard tablet.
The IDOL 4S + VR is the company’s new flagship smartphone, taking the alcatel user’s experience up a notch with unique, finely crafted design, and innovative features.
We saw first-hand the latest mobile devices from alcatel during their launch this month at Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria where brand executives were also present to share the latest development and achievements of the company behind these products.
We can say that these new devices have what it takes to give users the best of what they can get for these products. Although, to say the least, price could be a factor when it comes to the buying decisions of the costumers. But with specs coming from these latest products, it’s definitely worth it.
Now let’s go the form factor.
IDOL 4S + VR
This alcatel flagship smartphone comes with a neat packaging, not the usual boxed set, with a pair of VR goggles. The IDOL 4S has a 16-megapixel rear-facing camera and 8-megapixel front camera with a 2K AMOLED screen display and a 3000mAh quick-charge battery. it comes with the innovative feature, Boom Key.
The Boom Key promises to level up custom-made features like taking photos and videos, listening to music, gaming, and user interface. “It boom-ifies everything, from the sound to photos to gaming,” shared Liza Woods, alcatel Regional Director for Asia pacific and Country Manager for the Philippines.
“Something we’re really excited about as well is that we’ve augmented our flagship’s multimedia experience: the large screen with great views from all angles, powerhouse audio, and top-of-the-line camera with dual flash,” added Woods.
The 5.5″ IDOL 4S + VR is priced at PhP 30,000.
MOVE TIME TRACK & TALK watch
Recognizing that seamless connections are vital in today’s mobile world, alcatel also launches the MOVE TIME TRACK & TALK watch for children. Designed to kids from 5 to 9 years old, this 2G device allows parents to call or send them voice messages. Using the simple user interface, children can reply to calls from up to 10 pre-set contacts and make calls to 5 registered numbers.
“Connected objects are part of the daily experience of young children today, so MOVE TIME TRACK & TALK watch can fit easily with their needs and parents’ needs,” said Vittorio Di Mauro, general Manager of Smart Connectivity at alcatel.
The MOVE TIME TRACK & TALK watch is priced at PhP 5,000.
