New Alcatel 3V offers up gigantic screen and battery

Alcatel on Friday announced its latest smartphone, the 3V, is on
its way to Metro in the coming weeks. The Alcatel 3V features
entry-level performance paired with a massive display and generous
battery.

Alcatel is the fourth-largest phone maker in North America and
often makes low-cost alternatives to Samsung, LG, and others. Its
phones are typically paired with prepaid and MVNO carriers.

The Alcatel 3V runs Android 9 Pie with Google Assistant baked
into the experience. In terms of power, there’s a 2.0GHz
octa-core processor with 3GB RAM with 32GB of storage. Users who
need more room can add a microSD card with up to 32GB extra
media.


The main draw here is the
6.7-inch display with 1440 x 720 pixel resolution. Protected by
Dragontail Pro glass, it’s among the biggest you’ll find on a
phone.

The 4,000mAh battery is no slouch, either. It’s big enough to
last most users around two days and charges via USB Type-C.

As for cameras, you’ll find a 16-megapixel main rear shooter
with a 5-megapixel sensor for depth. Around front is an 8-megapixel
camera and the experience is complimented with AI scene detection
tech and Google Lens.

The Alcatel 3V is coming soon to T-Mobile’s prepaid brand,
Metro. Pricing and exact availability is not yet known. Canadian
customers will also see the phone at Freedom Mobile.
