alcatel-pixi-4-plus-power-orange

After recently launching the Idol 4S (you can check out our full review here), Alcatel is showing no signs of slowing down. Today, the company posted on their website a colorful new Android device dubbed the Alcatel Pixi 4 Plus Power. The phone looks to be going head-to-head against other affordably priced endurance-focused smartphones like the $300 Blu Energy XL.

However, where the Blu Energy XL offers a premium aluminum build, the Pixi 4 Plus Power — and its massive 5,000mAh battery — seem to be going for a more youthful, colorful look. The phone features an array of brightly colored back covers and to ensure you never forget about the 2-day battery life the phone is allegedly capable of, a matching “5,000mAh” banding can be found on the front.

Unfortunately, it seems that’s where the fun ends. On paper, the specs are on the (very) low-end, with a 5.5-inch 720p display, 8GB of internal storage, 1GB of RAM, and a complete lack of 4G LTE. But hey, you can always use it as a smart power bank to juice up your other devices. Other hardware specs include the following:

Alcatel Pixi 4 Plus Power

  • 5.5-inch HD IPS 1280 x 720p
  • 8GB ROM, 1GB RAM
  • Micro SD up to 32GB
  • 13MP rear / MP front
  • Dimensions: 152 x 78.3 x 9.9mm 202g
  • 5,000mAh battery

Additional features:

  • Polaroid camera
  • Video stabilization (EIS )
  • Arkamys optimized speakers
  • Power saving mode
  • Powerbank function
  • Fast charging
  • Connectivity: 3G HSPA+: 21Mbps downlink, 5.76Mbps uplink
  • Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, Wi-Fi direct
  • Bluetooth 4.0, GPS
  • Micro USB 2.0
  • Micro SIM
  • Dual SIM Dual Standby + TF card

Although pricing and availability isn’t mentioned anywhere on the site, we’re guessing it will extremely affordably priced (especially considering the low-end hardware). Still, if you’re looking for a budget smartphone exclusively for playing Pokemon Go (because you wont be able to install much else on it), you could certainly do a whole lot worse.
