New Alcatel 7, characteristics, price and technical sheet

24 mayo, 2021

Alcatel started the year by announcing three new series of smartphones (Alcatel 5, 3 and 1), of which we have already analyzed some models such as the Alcatel 5, the Alcatel 3V or more recently the Alcatel 1X with Android Go and Alcatel 5V, the first with notch. But the firm doesn’t stop there and today they announce a new model: the Alcatel 7.

The Alcatel 7 has been announced in the United States and, if we look only at its numbering, inaugurates a new series that also stands above the previous ones. Will it also be above in terms of features?

Alcatel 7

We are going to focus on the exterior of the Alcatel 7, a mobile that at first glance it does not stand out especially. It looks rather understated in glossy black, although Alcatel has not specified the type of material used.

The front includes the screen, a 6-inch IPS and 18: 9 format with FullHD + resolution, but it has very wide top and bottom frames. Despite the available space, Alcatel has preferred to keep the fingerprint reader on the back, located just below its double camera. By the way, it also has facial unlocking.

The camera has a 12-megapixel main sensor with f / 2.2 lens, complemented by a 2-megapixel sensor and smaller aperture lens (f / 2.4) that takes care of read the depth of the scene to generate the popular background blur or portrait mode. It is accompanied by a dual-tone LED flash and phase detection focus. The front camera has an 8 megapixel sensor and f / 2.8 lens, also with an LED flash.

Putting the focus on autonomy

Alcatel 7

Alcatel remains faithful to the processors of the Chinese brand Mediatek with this Alcatel 7. Specifically, it is the Eight-core Mediatek Helio P23, accompanied by 2 GB of RAM. In terms of memory, there is a single 32 GB option, enough for many users, but if they fall short, it can be expanded with MicroSD up to 128 GB more. In the software we have Android 8.1 Oreo.

It is clear that power is not the strong point of this model, but where it takes its chest is in autonomy. Alcatel equips a battery of 4,000 mAh, which taking into account its very basic specifications, should give a well-extended autonomy. Alcatel ensures that up to 28 hours on call.

Versions and prices of Alcatel 7

The announcement of the Alcatel 7 has been produced in the United States, where it will be sold at MetroPCs. At the moment we do not have information of its arrival in more countries but the price is known, 179.99 dollars (157 euros at the change).
