TCL Communication's Alcatel 3V (2019 version) smartphone will be available soon in Canada through Freedom Mobile and other carriers in North America.
The device, dubbed an "affordable smartphone," has a 6.7" HD+ Full View display, and runs on the Android operating system. Its battery lasts for a full day, and it includes an octa-core processor, dual rear cameras with depth sensor, and stereo speakers.
"Today's immersive multimedia experiences should not be limited to flagship or high-end smartphones," says Eric Anderson, Senior Vice President and General Manager for TCL Communication, North America. "With the introduction of the Alcatel 3V (2019), we are leveraging TCL's expertise in display manufacturing and making smartphones with large high-resolution screens accessible to more people in North America."
Using the immersive screen, you can read more news, check social updates, and view 18:9 videos. The phone comes pre-loaded with Google Assistant so you can ask things or get things done using just your voice, including launching apps, setting reminders, dictating texts, and making phone calls. Google Assistant also works for voice control of connected your smart home and Google-enabled devices, directly from the phone.
With an octa-core processor and 3GB RAM, the Alcatel 3V (2019) runs smoothly for activities like movie streaming, high quality videos, and online gaming. The 4,000mAh battery offers 24 hours of talk time, and Pump Express+ quick charging is capable of generating up to six hours of battery life in just 20 minutes. In addition, built-in Battery Saver Mode and Smart Manager helps you manage usage throughout the day.
A 16MP main rear camera is paired with a 5MP depth sensing camera, enabling you to focus on your subject in real-time with bokeh for high quality photos. It also comes equipped with an 8MP front-facing camera, Google Lens, and AI scene detection technology that automatically detects and enhances up to 22 different types of scenes such as group pictures, food, sunsets, or fireworks.
The Alcatel 3V (2019) is, as noted, coming soon to Canada on Freedom Mobile and to the U.S. on Metro by T-Mobile.
