Both handsets aim budget-conscious users and offer 4G LTE connectivity, featuring rather weak specs and coming loaded with Android Lollipop.

Alcatel OneTouch brings two new affordable smartphones to Sprint subsidiary Boost Mobile, with one of them offering protection from both water and dust for less than $130 USD. Rugged handset Alcatel OneTouch Conquest is already available for purchase at a price of just $129.99 USD while the even cheaper Elevate will hit Boost Mobile next month for $99.99 USD.

The IP67-certified Conquest smartphone has a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor next to 1 GB RAM and 8 GB internal storage, 5-inch HD IPS multitouch display protected by Dragontrail glass, 2 MP and 5 MP image snappers on the front and back, the usual connectivity features (WiFi, Bluetooth, 4G LTE), and comes loaded with Android 5.0 Lollipop

The low-end Elevate is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC with four cores, a 4.5-inch FWVGA display, same camera specs as its larger sibling but comes with Android 5.1 Lollipop. Despite its lower price tag, it packs LTE connectivity, but lacks protection from the elements.

To perfectly match such affordable handsets, Boost Mobile offers a $30 USD data plan that packs unlimited talk and text, as well as 2 GB of high-speed 3G/4G data. More details can be found in the news article published by Danielle Babbington on Sprint's newsroom.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
