Alcatel has added yet another phone to its Flash series of smartphones in the form of Alcatel Flash 2. The smartphone has been designed especially for selfie and photography lovers, as it sports LED flash both at rear as well as front end.
The Alcatel Flash 2 has been priced at Rs. 9,299 and will be exclusively sold through Flipkart. If you are interested in buying it, then you need to register here. The device goes on sale from October 27 on Flipkart. Without much ado, let’s get straight to Flash 2’s specifications.
Alcatel Flash 2’s USP is its camera, so manufacturer has cleverly placed a dedicated camera key on the phone’s right side to make accessing camera easy. The device features a 5-inch IPS LCD HD (720p resolution) display with 5-point multi-touch capacitive touch panel. The display offers up to 178 degree viewing angles, all thanks to MiraVision Image Technology.
Under the hood is a 64-bit MediaTek MT6753 octa-core chipset clocked at 1.3GHz coupled with 2GB SDRAM and 16GB of internal storage. One can further expand the memory via microSD cards of up to 128GB. Graphics are taken care of by a Mali -T720 graphics unit.
The phone offers dual-SIM, dual-standby 4G connectivity and runs Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box. As far as camera is concerned, the phone has a 13-megapixel GreenEye Samsung S5K3M2 ISOCELL image sensor, which comes with f2.0 aperture, real tone flash and Phase detection auto focus (PDAF) technology. A 5-megapixel camera sits at the front and comes with a OV5648 sensor, f2.2 aperture, LED flash, Front LED flash and 84-degree Wide Angle.
The lesser the ‘f’ number of a camera, the more light it captures. The Alcatel Flash 2 has a ƒ/2.0 aperture, which is superior to even Apple iPhone 6’s f2.2 aperture, thus allowing Flash 2 to capture more light in similar low light conditions.
The smartphone packs a 3,000 mAh lithium-ion battery, which is rated to deliver a talk time of up to 25 hours on 2G and standby of 25 days. Connectivity options offered on this device include Bluetooth 4.0, WiFi, Dual SIM cards, HSPA+ and LTE.
