The Alcatel 1X comes with a 13MP and 8MP rear dual camera setup. It also has a 16-megapixel front camera with Zeiss optics. In addition, there are specific applications for this version of the Android operating system, which eliminate some advanced options but are completely useful. It runs a MediaTek 6739 available in 1/2GB RAM and 8/16GB storage variants, both expandable via micro SD card.

The Alcatel 3V comes with a dual camera setup at the back which includes a 12MP sensor and one 2MP sensor with LED flash.

It also runs on an enhanced data efficiency system.

Earlier, leaks showed that the fingerprint scanner and the Nokia logo will be located on the rear panel of this upcoming device from HMD Global. "The differences between the three phones are with their displays; the Alcatel 3 and 3X will have a 5.5" and 5.7" display, respectively, although they share the same 1,440 x 720 pixels resolution.

The Alcatel 1T 7 Wi-Fi tablet also comes with an incredibly pocketable form factor and lightweight body, weighing in at 245g and measuring 9.15mm thin, making it ideal for sharing the device within the home.
