Looking for a new Android phone that can handle a little bit of rough or watery sports and won’t tear through your wallet? Alcatel may have something for you.
We have all heard about Sony Xperia series that are waterproof and dust proof right? But for some, the price for that particular brand is a little steep. Why not? For its all weather proofing features it will surely cost a bomb. Now here’s the good news. Alcatel have launched their all weather proofing Android phone early this year that is not only affordable, but also highly durable.
I have known about this phone late last year with 1GB of RAM specification but I noticed in their official website that they have made an upgrade on the RAM section to 2GB. So I’m not sure if this is the same one as previously advertised in some of the tech websites.
With the RAM upgrade, I’m sure this phone will receive some fans from the masses who are looking for strong durable smartphone.
Here’s a rundown on the “new” specifications:
- Display: 5.0” HD (720 x 1280) 294 ppi, DragonTail Glass
- Network: LTE/4G, HSDPA+
- CPU: Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 1.2GHz Quad-Core (some websites stated it as 1.5GHz)
- Memory: 2GB RAM, 16GB internal space with MicroSD support up to 32GB
- OS: Android Lollipop 5.0
- Features: IP67 Water, dust & shock resistant
- Battery: 2500mAh built in
- Camera: Rear 8MP Auto-Focus Camera with LED flash, front 5MP, video 1080P@30fps
The main feature of the Alcatel OneTouch Go Play smartphone is the water and shock resistant. With these features, taking underwater photo and video is a snap. It will definitely be a great outdoor companion when you’re in the rough. Surely you wouldn’t want to carry a more expensive non-waterproof smartphone anywhere outdoor especially during camping right? All I can say, this will be a more fun smartphone to have around the next time you visit a riverside camp site or during your trip to Sunway Lagoon Waterpark. Best of all, it won’t break your bank.
You can purchase the Alcatel OneTouch Go Play at Alcatel’s official website for only USD$199 (about RM810) with free shipment and also receive one free ruggedized case.
