Alcatel Idol 5 shows up on GFXBench
Alcatel has been quite busy lately, but it looks like they already have a new smartphone in the pipeline. Expected to debut as Alcatel Idol 5, this handset apparently surfaced on GFXBench this week as Alcatel 6060.
The smartphone that was spotted on GFXBench is a 5.2-inch unit with full HD resolution that uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor. Its specs also include 3 GB RAM, 32 GB internal storage, a frontal camera with 8 MP and a 12 MP main image shooter with 4K video shooting capabilities, autofocus, touch focus, and face detection, but missing the HDR photography features that have become quite popular in the mid-range sector lately.
As spotted on GFXBench, Alcatel 6060/Idol 5 runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat and only comes with one SIM slot. The rumors claim that it will not launch alone, being accompanied by a slightly different Idol 5S model. For now, nothing is official, so we should wait for Alcatel to unleash this new member of the Idol lineup in the coming weeks (or months).
