Specs of rumored alcatel Idol 5 leaked on GFXBench

Yordan, 12 April 2017

alcatel launched four devices at the MWCin Barcelona in February, but none of them was a flagship. Now leaked specs on GFXBench reveal to us that a new Idol is in sight - probably goin by the alcatel Idol 5 name.

As you can see from the image, the CPU has eight Cortex A53 cores, clocked at 2 GHz and the GPU is Adreno 506 which corresponds to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset. The screen is 5.2” with Full HD resolution and it all runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat.

The RAM is 3 GB while the storage is 32 GB (22 GB available). Idol 5 will have main 12 MP camera on the back and a 8 MP one on the front.

We know for sure this isn’t the Idol 5S since it leaked on GFXBench a month ago. Sadly, we are yet to hear from alcatel about an actual Idol 5/5S release.

Thanks for the tip, Gideon!

SnapDragon SoC is always welcome considering its capability to easily be rooted/custom build roms compared to close sourced MediaTek, Exynos, Kirin, etc.

Can't wait for this to get the BlackBerry rebrand treatment. 625 with guaranteed monthly security patches is a win.

They should advertise idol 4s and unlock the bootloader too just like the idol 3, then the sales must get a big boost. I am still using idol 3!
