Back in 2015, the Alcatel Idol 3 smartphone turned out to be quite a hit for TCL, offering an attractive combination of specs and design for its price. Its successor offered less value for the money but came with a retail box that doubled as a VR headset. Now, the next-gen Alcatel Idol smartphone has just surfaced in what appears to be a press photo, not long after having been spotted on GFXBench.

According to an exclusive report by WinFuture, the Alcatel Idol 5 comes with a 5.2-inch full HD IPS display, a MediaTek MT6735 processor, 3 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage, a 13 MP front camera, as well as a 2,800 mAh battery. Earlier rumors also mentioned a 16 MP main camera.

Roland Quandt also mentioned that it is unclear if this handset would get Android 8.0 Oreo as an update, so we should assume that the preloaded operating system is Android Nougat. The images he obtained reveal two color options - black and silver. 

Alcatel Idol 5 is expected to hit the market for EUR€399 - currently valued around US$470. However, US customers should expect a lower price. Earlier this summer, the Alcatel Idol 5S went on sale for as low as US$200 (with lock-screen ads, for Amazon Prime members).

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
