TCL branded Alcatel in pre-conference announcements today unveiled its three new smartphone series alongside two new affordable Android-powered tablets. However, both the slates are essentially the same which are made available in two different sizes sharing minor change in camera pixel, and battery capacity.
Price and Availability
The 1T7 as the moniker suggests comes with a 7-inch IPS display bearing a resolution of 1,024 x 600 pixels.
Under the hood, the device is powered by a MediaTek MT8321A/D quad-core SoC mated with 1GB RAM. Storage department offers 8GB of onboard storage expandable using microSD card.
As for the optics, the rear packs a 2-megapixel camera along with a VGA front-facing camera.
It runs on Android 8.0 (Oreo) out of the box and the battery powering the device has the capacity of 2,580 mAh which according to the company claims up to seven hours of usage off a single charge.
On the other hand, the 1T10 packs a bigger 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 1,280 x 800 pixels.
Under the hood, the device is powered by slightly more powerful MediaTek MT8321 SoC mated with same 1GB RAM. The storage department on the latter offers 16GB of storage also expandable with a microSD card.
It shares a same 2-megapixel rear camera like its smaller sibling. However, the front comes loaded with a 2-megapixel sensor over VGA.
It too runs on Android Oreo out of the box and it is fueled by a larger 4,000 mAh battery that offers up to eight hours of usage on a single charge according to the company.
In addition, both the devices are targeted for younger users and so comes an ‘Eye Care Mode’ (designed to reduce the effects of blue light) and a ‘Kids Mode.’ The mode not only offers selective pre-installed apps and games suitable for younger minds but also comes with additional settings allowing parents to set various aspects like usage limits.
