Alcatel Announces New Phones And Tablets, All Called PIXI 3

By 12:01 Sat, 24 Jul 2021 Comments


Alcatel has definitely brought a lot of recent devices to this year's MWC. Yesterday we reported on two recent devices, bearing the name OneTouch IDOL 3 and it appear we only skimmed the surface. And if thought those two differently sized namesake phones were very confusing wait until you see the next badge.




A total of three tablets and two phones will all share the model - PIXI 3. And the incompatibility across the lineup isn't only in the classy screen size. First up there are the two recent smartphones. Both are named PIXI 3 (5.5), which signifies their classy screen size. The most obvious incompatibility is that one of them supports 4G LTE, while the other one doesen't. But the differences don't stop there. The lower-discontinue model comes with a 540 x 960 pixel panel, while its bigger brother boats an HD resolution of 720p. Chipsets are also quite different - a MediaTek MT6580 in the low-discontinue and a QCT 8909 in the other device. Both phones will have 1GB of Random-Access Memory (RAM) and will run Android L out of the box, but the differences are abundant. Below is a full list of the specs of each one.

The situation is actually even more confusing with the tablets. All three of them bear the name PIXI3(7) with either Wi-Fi, 3G or 4G LTE appended at the end. This definitely clears up the question of connectivity, but hardware-wise the three models have small in common, besides the 7-inch 1024x600-inch screen.




Chipsets are different, Random-Access Memory (RAM) as well. Even the preinstalled Android version, with only the top of the line model offering Android Lollipop. Once again here are the specs on the three devices so you can judge for yourself.
