Alcatel unveils new phone with four cameras
This is just absurd.
Alcatel announced their new Flash phone today and not only does it have dual-cameras, it actually has two of them. Yes, that’s right, the new phone will have a dual-camera setup for both its main camera, and its front camera, which means it will have a total of four cameras on the phone itself.
This is in response to Oppo’s and LG’s recent unveiling of their dual front facing camera in the Oppo F3 and the LG V10.
The rear camera’s will both be sporting 13-megapixel sensors with one of the cameras to be in color and the other monochromatic. This is the same setup that the iPhone 7 is using and it’s also the same one that Huawei has been using on the P9 and Honor 8. The reasoning behind this is that both cameras will take the same picture at the same time and software will then stitch them together to create an image which is brighter and has more contrast. On the other hand, the dual front facing camera will have one camera at 8 megapixels with the second camera at 5 megapixels. It’s unclear if Alcatel will be using the one color, one monochromatic setup on the front lenses as well, but for sure it will lead to better images.
Alcatel’s new phone will also be have a 5.5-inch 1080p display and will be using the Mediatek Helio X20, which is, by the way, a deca-core processor. It will also be running on and older version of Android, Android Marshmallow, which came out in 2016.
Although the images will be clear and vivid, one thing about this phone isn’t and that is it’s availability and pricing as Alcatel has left us in the dark about such details.
