Alcatel has announced over at the MWC their upcoming lineup of mobile devices that’s expected to hit the market this year. Aside from the One Touch Fire and the One Touch Idol X which was previously unveiled another model has been recently announced which is called the One Touch Snap and the One Touch Snap LTE.
Despite having the same name with the only difference of an LTE added on the second model, both devices are really different.
The One Touch Snap will be using a still undisclosed quad core processor clocked at 1.2 GHz. Some experts are saying that it’s going to be the same processor also used in the One Touch Idol X. It’s going to come with 1 GB of RAM and 4 GB of internal storage (2.4 GB is user accessible) and will sport a 4.5 inch qHD display. The device uses Dragontail Glass that will come with oleophobic coating for maximum protection and to keep fingerprints at bay. It’s already going to run Android 4.2 Jelly Bean. The 1800 mAh battery is estimated to provide at least 340 hours of standby time or 7 hours of talk time on a 3G network. For photos and videos there’s the 8 MP rear camera with autofocus and LED flash. There’s also a 1.2 MP front camera. Both cameras can record videos of 720p quality.
The One Touch Snap LTE is different in so many ways from the non LTE version. This model uses a 1.4GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor and will be using Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. It will be using a slightly larger display measuring 4.65 inches yet comes at a lower resolution of 480 x 854 pixels (FWVGA). On the plus side it will be using a bigger 2200 mAh battery and sport a higher rated 2 MP front camera.
No pricing details were revealed yet however the availability of both devices were announced with the Snap headed to the market on April followed by the LTE version on July.
