Alcatel unveils One Touch Idol X, 5-inch, 1080p, Jelly Bean

24 February, 2013

Alcatel has been trailing behind Android A-listers as of late but today ventured boldly into the high-end with the One Touch Idol X. It's rocking a 5" 1080p screen with minimalist bezel - not unlike many of the current top-shelf Android offerings.

It has a quad-core processor of undisclosed origin, clocked at 1.2 GHz, as well as 16GB of inbuilt storage expandable via an SD card slot. A 2000mAh battery and a 13MP snapper are the other highlights of a package that runs, by the looks of it, a near stock version of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.

There's still no actual word on pricing or availability but it may be bound for international release with US availability in question due to the apparent lack of LTE on board.

The One Touch Idol X will come in a variety of colors - blue, yellow and red for starters.

The One Touch Idol X comes to top the recently announced One Touch Idol and Idol Ultra. The former features a 4.65" 720p AMOLED screen, an 8MP still camera and a dual-core processor. The latter goes for a 4.66 qHD IPS LCD, an 8MP camera and dual-core processor. Both come with Android Jelly Bean out of the box.

And while those three devices sound excellent on paper - the naming scheme is bound to cause confusion.
