Idol 4 and 4s, Plus 10, POP4, POP4+, and POP4S: Alcatel at MWC 2016

Alcatel at MWC 2016

GSMArena team, 20 February, 2016.

Introduction

Alcatel has brought the whole family to this year's MWC - two Idol 4 phones, Pixis of all sizes and even a Windows 10 hybrid laptop. The phones really like to party and have dedicated Boom button, which turns up the sound, launches the camera (and does a few other things), while the stereo speakers can work in any direction you want.
