Alcatel's new selfie smartphone is surprisingly cheap for the specs it's offering. Its Flash Plus has an octa-core processor running at 1.5Ghz with 2GB RAM, a 5.5-inch 720p IPS display, 3,500mAh battery, with a 13MP rear camera and an f2.4 8MP selfie cam.
Design-wise, it's a svelte 7.9mm thick and supports dual-SIM. Besides that it also offers 30fps HD video recording. All for RM549, which is very cheap compared to all the other selfie-centric phone models out there. But if you preorder it from Aug 25 to Sept 7, it will cost only RM499.
Just head on over to Lazada to make your preorder if the phone appeals to you. It's only available in Slate, however, and it's uncertain if the gold and white variants will be made available in future. Still, on paper, the phone is a really good deal for someone who loves to Instagram but can't afford super-expensive cameraphones. Or it makes a super-affordable gift.
