Alcatel One Touch N3: not so much bezel

Alcatel One Touch N3: not so much bezelThe “zero bezel” Alcatel One Touch Idol X was launched way back at Mobile World Congress 2013 in February, and it’s only just hitting shelves some six months later.

But already we’re hearing word on a possible successor, the TCL N3, which may or may not be called the Alcatel One Touch N3 over here. For purposes of this here story, let’s go with it.

TCL, incidentally, is the Chinese half of the joint venture Alcatel Mobile Phones, the other half of course being France’s Alcatel-Lucent.

According to a leaked render on mtksj.com, the Alcatel One Touch N3 will follow in the “zero bezel” footsteps of its predecessor, having an almost edge-to-edge display.

And despite having a larger display than the Alcatel One Touch Idol X (5.7in versus 5in), the Alcatel One Touch N3 will be only a tiny bit bigger overall.

Otherwise, Alcatel One Touch N3 specs are elusive for the time being, so we’ll rattle off some Alcatel One Touch Idol X specs for a laugh: 5in HD display, quad-core 1.5GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, 13MP camera, 8GB internal storage (microSD, too), and a slightly disappointing 2,000mAh battery. Expect the Alcatel One Touch N3 to build on those. Er, obviously.

While I'm listing things randomly, why not read about the Alcatel One Touch Scribe Easy, One Touch Scribe HD and One Touch Idol Ultra? Good lord, those names.

TCL's road to greatness begins now

Although they should drop the Alcatel branding in Europe and just use TCL and RCA.

Yeah, sound advice. Alcatel is, in my opinion, associated too closely with £5 PAYG crap that you buy as a disposable phone when your real one is broken or you're doing something which has the possibility of breaking your real phone (messy night out etc).

See the thing is that TCL use their own brand name in quite literally every other territory. Yet when it comes to the EU it's suddenly "Alcatel".

They should switch out the brand and i think they'll see a new renewed interest in their mid to high end models. They could keep their low end budget phones branded as Alcatel. But i don't see how launching high end models with that name is going to do them any good.
