Short description alcatel 1 (2021)

This is a smartphone on Android 11 Go Edition with a usual good processor, with a large touchscreen size, with  the usual main camera for photos and video, and the front camera here turned out to be absolutely ordinary. And alcatel 1 (2021) has such features: a slot for two SIM cards.

Android version and market relevance

In the short description of the new smartphone alcatel 1 (2021) we point out the key characteristics for each smartphone. Firstly, it is an actuality in the market. This model was announced by the company Alcatel in June 2021. Secondly, this concept of adequacy in the market at the moment. We determine this according to the software version on which the smartphone is running and updating. So, “out of the box” alcatel 1 (2021) works on Android 11 Go Edition and has not received until now no updates to the more recent version of the software. In this case, we advise you to avoid buying models that do not receive software updates. Look at the others smartphones of 2021.

Of the features that not all Android smartphones have today, we separately single out support for two SIM cards and the ability to work in 5G networks with a maximum speed of 100 Mb/s. So alcatel 1 (2021) is a dual-smartphone, so you can combine in one device just two phones. This, of course, is convenient and makes you look more closely at this model. The manufacturer could add support for fifth-generation networks to this smartphone, but did not. Perhaps not to raise the price, or for other reasons. If for you the presence of support for 5G networks in a new smartphone is very important, then we recommend that you go to this page in the catalog — all 5G smartphones on Android.

Screen, body and battery

5-inch TFT touchscreen occupies almost the entire area of the front panel of the smartphone alcatel 1 (2021).. Body thickness 9.8 mm puts the battery in it in capacity 2 000 mAh. As a result, these three important characteristics give us such an idea of the device — big smartphone with very thick case and weak battery.

This model could become a flip smartphone and get into our catalog on a separate page, where all phones with flexible screens are collected. Unfortunately, this did not happen. And therefore, if you are interested in smartphones with such top-end characteristics, we advise you to look at them in our catalog and get a deeper understanding in which direction the entire mobile electronics industry is moving. Perhaps, in a couple of years, every second person on the planet will have such flip smartphones.

Main camera and selfie camera

Take photos and videos on smartphone alcatel 1 (2021) possible on the main camera (5 MP with a regular lens) and on the front camera (2 MP with a regular lens). We tried to group all smartphones in the catalog into segments and this model with such a main camera got in the segment of weak chambers. And today there are a lot of camera phones at affordable prices, which we recommend that you look at.

Processor and Internal Memory

Brilliant multi-core processor Mediatek MT6739 (28 nm) installed in alcatel 1 (2021). 1 GB of RAM will help make the interface work smoother. There is also built-in memory in the smartphone, which stores photos, videos, music and all your other data. The amount of this built-in memory is 8/16 GB. Memory cards you can also use, in this model are supported microSDHC-cards.

Price for alcatel 1 (2021): buy or not to buy?

So we told about cheapest average power smartphone alcatel 1 (2021) with a large screen, conventional main camera and weak frontal, and still there is a weak battery.

All these characteristics in 2021 may be good, but the time goes by and the smartphone will somehow become obsolete in half a year of the beginning of sales. And by the way, to sell it start in August 2021 at a price of $70. This is the official price from the manufacturer without taxes and fees, so it can differ in each country, and not only for different sellers.

Before you buy alcatel 1 (2021), be sure to check out all the photos and video reviews on it, or better still go to the offline store (electronics supermarket) and twist it in your hand. And already then, based on the emotions received from the smartphone, make the decision to buy.

And if alcatel 1 (2021) is not already sold, when you are reading this text, then do not be upset. We advise you to always visit the page DROID smartphones, where we collect only the most current models on new versions of Android OS.
