Alcatel hit the stage in Barcelona even two days before the official beginning of the Mobile World Congress 2016. The company said that it wants to be more competitive in the market of smartphones priced between $200 and $400, but also announced a couple of new devices.
One of the devices that Alcatel unveiled yesterday is the company’s first ever 2-in-1 hybrid Windows 10 laptop, Alcatel Plus 10. Since the Alcatel Plus 10 is a hybrid device, you can use it in three modes, as a normal tablet, when the keyboard is detached; as a laptop, when the keyboard is attached; and when the keyboard is placed back to front, you can use it as a stand for watching movies and TV.
Alcatel Plus 10 Features
Besides being powered by Microsoft’s latest operating system, Alcatel Plus 10 is going to feature a 10.1-inch display, with the resolution of 1.280 x 800 pixels. The device will feature the Intel Atom x5 Z8350 1.92 GHZ quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB or 32GB of internal storage space, with the support for a microSD card of up to 128GB.
The tablet has a 2MP front camera, which is not so great for taking high-quality selfies, but gets the job done pretty well, when it comes to communication, like talking on Skype. The Alcatel Plus 10 also boasts a 5MP camera on the back. As for the speakers, there are stereo speakers on the front.
As for the connectivity, the tablet has a full-size USB port, a microUSB and a microHDMI. It also features a built-in LTE connectivity, and can serve as a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to 15 other devices. The Alcatel Plus 10 has 8 hours of battery life, which is pretty solid for a device of its range.
As Alcatel noted, the Plus 10 will be available in June this year, but we still have no details about the price.
As you probably know, we’re leaving for Barcelona tomorrow, and we’ll try to deliver you the freshest news about new Windows device of the MWC 2016, right from the spot. We expect a lot of interesting Windows 10 devices to be unveiled at the MWC, like the HP Elite x3, or Huawei’s new Windows 10 device.
