Not much time has passed since the announcement of the eight -core MT6592 processor from MediaTek, as the models of smartphones have already become known in which this chip will be used. Among the first smartphones will be Alcatel Idol X+. Now its younger version without index “+” is available on the market, equipped with a quad-core processor ARM Cortex-A7 manufactured by the same MediaTek company.
According to the GSMInsider resource, TCL, which is the owner of the Alcatel brand, plans to cooperate with the Chinese JD online retailer.COM for sales of a new IDOL X+.
Despite the fact that initially the smartphone will be launched on the Chinese market, it can be assumed that Alcatel plans to make it available around the world if the novelty pay due attention to the Celestial Empire and it will be popular among users.
The question of the date of start of sales IDOL X remains open+. So far the manufacturer has not called any specific deadlines. There is a chance that the public smartphone will be demonstrated already in January 2014 at the Consumer Electronics Show exhibition, but so far this is only an assumption. We can get more detailed information by the end of the year.
The Chinese blog of TCL says that Alcatel Idol X+ will be equipped with 5 “capacitive sensory display that supports the Full HD (1080p) resolution. The “heart” of the smartphone, as mentioned above, will be the 8-core MediaTek processor, also 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory.
For lovers of photography, there are no less good news: in IDOL X+ a 13-MP will be installed with a back camera with autofocus, LED flash and video support in Full HD format. However, all of the listed characteristics may not be final, but by the time of the release, changes from the manufacturer are possible.
It is also not clear which version of the Android operating system will go with a smartphone, but most likely it will be Android 4.4 Kitkat. As for Alcatel’s price policy, we hope that the cost of the new item will be higher than its quad-core “younger brother”, but will still remain in the accessible segment of devices of this class.
