The mid-range line up of smartphones is increasingly growing successful than expected. The recent news that rolled out in the rumor mill indicates that Alcatel is soon to launch an inexpensive smartphone, dubbed the Alcatel 3C. Until now, the displays with 18:9 aspect ratio was considered to be reserved for just the higher-end models of bigger smartphone giants. But the tech industry fairly witnessed the advent of smaller-end smartphones with the same feature, even from the companies which have recently joined the bandwagon of implementing newer technologies in smartphones.
Alcatel, which was formally known as the Alcatel OneTouch, has shared its space in the rumor mill. Our reports earlier also shed lights on the same fact that the French brand of mobile handsets launched a number of smartphones like the Alcatel A5 LED, OneTouch Pixi 4 and the likes. The company is now apparently developing its 3C device which is likely to unveil the Alcatel 3C at the Consumer Electronics Show next year. The event is set to occur in Las Vegas in early January. Today, through a product catalog (reported via Gizbot) we have come across all plausible key specs of this upcoming device.
