Alcatel 3V Specifications and Features
The Alcatel 3V, first announced in February, sports a modern design with premium materials including metal-and-glass build despite its budget price. It features a 6-inch display with a resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels and support for taller 18:9 aspect ratio. The bezels surrounding the display have been trimmed and since the front is almost entirely dominated by the display, Alcatel 3V holds the fingerprint sensor at the back, placed right below the camera module.
The smartphone is powered by MediaTek MT8735A quad-core CPU coupled with 3GB RAM (as opposed to 2GB RAM found on global model) and 32GB storage. It also supports expandable storage up to 128GB via microSD card slot. The Alcatel 3V also comes with dual rear camera setup featuring a combination of 12-megapixel and 2-megapixel sensors. The primary 12-megapixel camera has f/2.2 aperture and supports phase detection autofocus. At the front, there is a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash for those low-light selfies.
