Alcatel may be a little-known name in most parts of the word, but the French brand has massive ties to the communications industry, with its line of Mobile Wi-Fi devices seeing widespread use across the globe. The company also produces smartphones and, while they may not be as popular as other industry mainstays, the company does have a significant market share in the UK. The company has announced the launches of three new devices in it 3-series product line—one that offers devices with price tags under €200.

The first of those is the Alcatel 3V. The device features a 6-inch 18:9 FHD+ display. It's powered by an unnamed quad-core SoC with four Cortex A53 cores clocked at 1.45 GHz. That's particularly disappointing, and we're leery of how such an underwhelming SoC is expected to power a high-resolution display without dips in performance. The 3V features 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, with support for a 128 GB MicroSD card. On the camera side of the fence, it sports a dual rear camera setup (12 MP +2 MP) with EIS, and a 5 MP selfie shooter. A 3000 mAh battery and Android Oreo complete the package. There's also NFC present on the device, which is a welcome surprise.

The Alcatel 3 is the second device in the series. It sports a 5.5-inch 18:9 HD+ display, and is powered by a "quad-core A5" SoC. Like the 3V, it features 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of storage, with support for a 128 GB MicroSD. It sports a 13 MP + 5 MP dual rear camera setup with EIS, a 5 MP selfie camera, a 3000 mAh battery, and NFC. It will also run on Android Oreo out of the box.

The Alcatel 3X completes the triumvirate. It features a 5.7-inch 18:9 display, and is powered by the same SoC seen on the regular 3 model. It, in fact, boasts of a spec sheet similar to the aforementioned 3 variant, with the same camera setup and battery. Memory is where it offers a tangible upgrade, though, as it features 3 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage.

I like tech, simple as. Half the time, you can catch me writing snarky sales copy. The rest of the time, I'm either keeping readers abreast with the latest happenings in the mobile tech world or watching football. I worked as both a journo and freelance content writer for a couple of years before joining the Notebookcheck team in 2017. Feel free to shoot me some questions on Twitter or Reddit if it so tickles thine fancy.
