Alcatel Introduces Three New Affordable Smartphones, the Alcatel POP 4, POP 4+ and POP 4S

Alcatel POP 4 (2)

Alcatel started MWC 2016 with a bang as it unveiled three new affordable smartphones, the Alcatel POP 4, POP 4+ and POP 4S. These devices are targeting the lower end market segments from the entry level segments to the lower mid-range segments. These devices also come into the market at a time when Alcatel has dropped the ‘OneTouch’ on its devices.

These devices are meant for the youth who take a lot of photos and spend most of their time on social media. They come with some specs you expect on any entry level or mid-range smartphone.

Alcatel POP 4

The Alcatel POP 4 comes with a 5 inch display with a resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels, this translates to a pixel density of 293 PPI.  Below is a look at some of the specs of the POP 4.
