We reported recently that TCL-owned Alcatel is expected to launch the Idol 5S at MWC this month. The Alcatel Idol 5S made its way recently onto Geekbench with limited specs. The company has a press conference scheduled for February 8. We are now learning that Alcatel might also launch yet another phone — allegedly Alcatel Idol 5 Pro — during the event. According to a tipster, Idol 5 Pro will run Android operating system, not Windows 10.
As far as the Geekbench listing is concerned, the Alcatel Idol 5S runs Android 7.0 Nougat operating system out-of-the-box. Furthermore, it is powered by an eight-core MediaTek Helio P20 processor clocked at 1.69GHz as well as 3GB RAM. No other specifications are reportable as of now, though. TCL-owned BlackBerry, on the other hand, is reportedly gearing up to launch DTEK70 with QWERTY keyboard at Mobile World Congress.
In other news, an Alcatel smartphone (Alcatel 5046S) showed up on GFXBench last month. According to it, the device features a 5-inch HD display and 1.1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor under the hood. It comes with 1GB RAM, 16GB memory, and Android 7.0 Nougat operating system. The device houses 8MP rear camera and 5MP front camera. That aside, it comes with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS connectivity.
