Although Alcatel perhaps does not enjoy the improved sales figures in the smartphone sector, this company has a very interesting device catalog. This is mainly due to the value for money of the same, as most of its terminals have an attractive design and features that are not left behind.
One of the star terminals of this company owned by TCL is the Alcatel Idol 4 and 4s, terminals that could be close to receiving an upgrade. It has been through GSMArena that we have been able to take a look at the characteristics of the successor of the aforementioned terminals, the expected Alcatel Idol 5s.
If there was something that differentiated Alcatel devices from much of the Asian competition was the use of Qualcomm processors like Snapdragon 617 or 652 in the case of Idol 4s. This custom on the part of the firm of French origin could have come to an end, because according to the leak at GeekBench, the next Alcatel terminal would use MediaTek processor.
We speak specifically of the MediaTek Helio P20, a chip intended for the mid-range and has obtained quite satisfactory benchmarks. The filtered image shows the score achieved by Helio P20, and is not bad for a processor of this range.
On the other hand it seems that the device will enjoy 3 GB of RAM, but unfortunately the amount of internal storage that the Alcatel Idol 5s will have is unknown. Everything points to the smartphone will come with Android 7.0 Nougat, which would give a slight advantage over the competition.
It is expected that the Alcatel Idol 5s will be presented in a few weeks at the MWC to be held in Barcelona, so if you are interested in this device, you will not have to wait long to see it officially.
