Alcatel OneTouch Joins The Windows 10 Race With The Fierce XL

After all the Pixies from yesterday, Alcatel OneTouch has now announced a different beast, the Fierce XL, running Windows 10. OK, “beast” might be an overstatement for a device, powered by a Snapdragon 210 chipset, but we’ll let it slide.

The Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL has a 5.5-inch display with 720p resolution, protected by Dragontrail Glass. The S210 packs a quad-core Cortex-A7 CPU, ticking at 1.1GHz, Random-Access Memory (RAM) is 2GB and internal storage is 16GB, microSD-expandable.

There’s an 8MP primary capturing camera with an Light Emitting Diode (LED) flash, with video capture oddly limited to 720p (the chipset itself is fine for 1080p). On the front you acquire a 2MP selfie snapper.

The smartphone measures 151.9 x 77.8 x 9.4 and weighs a somewhat hefty 174g, for a plastic-built 5.5-inch device that is. And the weight is not due to battery capacity, as it’s only listed at 2,500mAh. Alcatel claims that’s fine for 14 hours of calls, but the 3-hour charging time raises eyebrows.

The Fierce XL has all your basic connectivity needs covered, with quad-band 2G, triple-band 3G, and Cat.4 LTE over three bands. Only three, you say, but those are T-Mobile’s LTE bands in the US, where the Fierce XL is headed. There’s also Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, and GPS.

The Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL will be available starting later this month in Light Blue color only. Although no specific number has been quoted, the press release does say that the phone will be “affordably priced” and so it should, given the hardware.
