So Alcatel unveiled possibly the strangest smartphone that we have ever seen at MWC this year, revealing three new Android smartphones that included the Alcatel U5, the Alcatel A3, and the Alcatel A5 LED.
The Alcatel A5 LED is the particularly strange one, as the name hints, it has a bunch of LEDs on it, but we will get back to that later on in the article.
The first of the devices is the Alcatel U5, which is Alcatel’s new entry-level device which features a 5-inch display that has a 480p resolution and comes alongside a quad-core 1.1 GHz processor, Android Marshmallow pre-installed, a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage inbuilt.
No pricing or availability has been revealed for the U5 just yet.
It also comes with a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, along with 1.5GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage.
And on top of that, it features a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with Android Marshmallow pre-installed.
It also comes with front-facing speakers, a fingerprint sensor and a grippy back.
Much like the U5, no pricing or availability has been revealed for the A3 just yet.
As we mentioned earlier, the strangest of all of these devices has to be the next one, the Alcatel A5 LED.
What makes this device interesting is that it features an LED panel at the back (as you can see in the image above), this panel covers the entirety of the back of the phone and lights up to show incoming notifications and other LED patterns that you have been based on your designs, daily themes, and it can even react to the music on your device.
In terms of specs, it has a 5.2-inch 720p IPS display, Android Marshmallow, an octa-core 1.5GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and an 8MP camera on the back.
The pricing or availability has not yet been confirmed for the smartphone much like the other two.
