There aren’t a lot of Android smartphones using a Quad HD (2560×1440) display in the market yet. There’s the Vivo Xplay 3S, the Oppo Find 7, and the recently released LG G3.

The main feature of the Alcatel One Touch D820 is its 4.6-inch display that has an amazing QHD resolution. It already runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat and uses a MediaTek quad core chip. Its 3GB of RAM should be able to provide a smooth user experience and its use of a PowerVR Rogue Han GPU makes it able to handle most of the demanding Android games in the market.
The MediaTek MT6595 chip that this model uses comes integrated with LTE support which means that this device will be able to use the 4G LTE network of most carriers.
Some of the key features of this chip include
- Four ARM Cortex-A17, each with significant performance improvement over previous-generation processors, plus four Cortex-A7™ CPUs
- ARM big.LITTLE architecture with full-system coherency performs sophisticated tasks efficiently
- Integrated Imagination Technologies PowerVR Series6 GPU for high-performance graphics
- Integrated 4G LTE Multi-Mode Modem
- Integrated, low-power hardware support for the new H.265 Ultra HD (4K2K) video record & playback, in addition to Ultra HD video playback support for H.264 & VP9
- MediaTek MiraVision technology for DTV-grade picture quality
- Multi-standard inductive and resonant wireless charging functionality available
What’s interesting about the GFXBench report is the cameras used by this device. It appears that it will be sporting an 8MP rear and front camera both of which are capable of recording 4K quality videos. While we are not quick to believe on this feature an 8MP front camera will definitely be popular among those who love to take selfie shots.
Since the reported specs are not official yet it’s best to take everything with a grain of salt.
