We know a lot of you have been keeping a close eye on Alcatel’s super affordable Android Oreo smartphone and now we are pleased to say that it’s available for pre-order in the USA and UK for the first time.
The Alcatel 1 is available for the cut price of $80 or £59.99 and it with that price it becomes one of the cheapest Android Oreo handsets on the market that ships with a 5-inch 18:9 display that offers a modest 960 x 480 resolution.
Obviously a budget price means low-end specs and this handset also includes 1.3GHz quad-core MediaTek processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage with MicroSD support, a 2000mAh battery and Android Go support.
The Altacel 1 also features a basic 5MP rear camera, with 2MP front camera and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Nobody should be expecting much for a sub $100/£100 smartphone, but with Android Go and Oreo on board it is definitely an attractive proposition.
