Alcatel, the TCL-backed company, has launched a new Android tablet in India. Dubbed as the Alcatel A3 10, the tablet comes with entry-level specifications and is priced at Rs. 9,999. The company recently launched a tablet named Pixi 4 (7), which came with support for LTE and Wi-Fi. The A3 10 comes with support for voice calling as well.
Diving into the specifications of the tablet, it flaunts a massive 10.1-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels. Alcatel did not mention the technology used to protect the display. The tablet is powered by a MediaTek 8735B SoC, with a quad-core CPU.
The highlight, however, of the tablet is that that it comes laden with Android 7.0 Nougat out-of-the-box. Alcatel also added a 5MP rear camera with LED flash in the tablet, along with a 2MP front-facing camera.
A 2GB of RAM module accompanies the mediocre chipset in the tablet, and it offers 16GB of internal storage, which is expandable up to 128GB via a microSD card slot. The tablet weighs a whopping 465 grams and has dimensions: 260x 155 x 8.95mm.
Furthermore, the tablet has support for voice calling as well. It has connectivity options such as 4G LTE, VoLTE, Wi-Fi b/g/n/, Bluetooth 4.2, and USB OTG. Another highlight of the tablet is the presence of massive 4600mAh battery, which is rated to deliver seven hours of continuous video playback. Alcatel did not mention the support for fast charging.
The Alcatel A3 10 tablet will be available in a single Volcano Black colour and will be exclusively available via Flipkart. “The new A3 10 was designed to provide our users with a completely immersive experience. The tablet comes with an array of features, which are unprecedented at this price and shall change the shape of this segment entirely,” said Praveen Valecha, Regional Director, Alcatel India.
