Unannounced Alcatel Idol 4 And 4S Leak In [Lots Of] Detail On Support Site Ahead Of Launch

It looks like Alcatel's MWC launch plans have been spoiled a bit, based on a couple of leaked support pages on the company's website just tipped to us. The Idol 4 and 4S follow up the rather nice Alcatel Idol 3 with beefed-up specifications all around. Though we don't have much in the way of visuals, we do have a lot of information.

The Idol 4 and 4S will have 5.2 and 5.5" screens, respectively, with the 4S clearly being the up-market device of the two. It has a brand-new Snapdragon 652 octacore processor, Quad HD Super AMOLED display, 3000mAh battery, and 16MP camera with dual-tone flash and something called an "8MP slow motion sub-camera" - whatever that means (maybe it's referring to front-facing).

[Hands-On] Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3 - An Affordable Lollipop Phone You Might Actually Want, In Two Sizes

If there's ever been a persistent comment on Android Police in the last couple of years, it's that powerful smartphones are just too damn big these days. The Nexus 6 is gigantic, and 5.2"+ is quickly becoming standard smartphone size. Finding a good, inexpensive phone that isn't too large isn't impossible, but it's probably not as easy as it should be.

So, that's where Alcatel comes in. Yes, Alcatel has a reputation for making some of the slowest, cheapest, and least likeable prepaid phone fare here in the US, but in China and around the world, Alcatel does offer a pretty large portfolio of handsets.

Alcatel OneTouch Has Cool Things Up Its Sleeve For CES: OS-Agnostic PIXI Phones (Android, Firefox, And Windows) And An Affordable Smartwatch

This year's Consumer Electronics Show will kick off next week, and many tech companies are ready to show off their gadgets. Alcatel OneTouch plans to attract attention on the show floor with its line of affordable phones and watches. But this time the price isn't the biggest draw.

The Alcatel OneTouch PIXI 3 series of handsets offer screens ranging from 3.5 to 5 inches. The smallest will only support 3G, while the 4", 4.5", and 5" options should handle 4G LTE as well. All will apparently be able to run Android, Firefox OS, or Windows. Alcatel describes the devices as OS agnostic but doesn't specify if the same hardware will run each platform or if there will be different models to choose from. The company also didn't include photos with the press release, so we'll have to wait until next week to get more information on the phones.

[IFA 2013] Alcatel Unveils One Touch Hero With Awesome E-Ink Cover And 3400mAh Battery, Along With 4 Other Android Phones

Alcatel unveiled a new line of smartphones at IFA today, none of which are coming to the US in their current forms. However, similar devices are destined to arrive stateside, and with what they've shown off thus far, this is something to get excited about. Lets start with the Alcatel One Touch Hero, a powerful offering that's more notable for what goes on the phone than what goes in it.
