Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 gets Android Marshmallow
Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 has been considered one of the best budget phones of 2015 and now this handset for budget-conscious buyers receives the Android Marshmallow update that most of its competitors will never get.
While the new firmware does not come with any surprises, it should include all the usual features that made Android Marshmallow a well-received Android version that has recently managed to exceed the 10 percent market share barrier. These features include Google Now on Tap, Doze mode, granular app permissions, new emojis, as well as multiple minor tweaks, fixes, and the latest security updates from Google.
The OneTouch Idol 3 comes in two variants, one with a 4.7-inch 720p display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, and 1.5 GB RAM while the other features a 5.5-inch 1080p touchscreen, Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, and 2 GB RAM. Both variants have a 13 MP main camera.
As usual, the users who did not receive the update notification yet can check for it manually. According to Alcatel USA, all unlocked Idol 3 devices should get the new firmware.
