TCL announced the launch of two new budget smartphones in Canada, the Alcatel 1B and 1X.
Both phones are now available with Bell and Freedom Mobile. Below are some of the details about the two phones.
The Alcatel 1B runs Android 10 (Go edition), which makes it a snappy fast and lightweight option for those who need just the basics. It sports a 5.5-inch 18:9 HD+ 720 x 1440 pixel display and is powered by a 3,000mAh battery. Additionally, the Alcatel 1B sports a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 2-megapixel front camera.
Further, the 1B runs on a quad-core processor, has 2GB of RAM and 16GB of storage expandable up to 128GB.
The Alcatel 1B is available with both Bell and Freedom Mobile, and will come to Rogers in the future.
