As we can see, mobile devices are popping out with dual cameras that are either on the main module or with those few manufacturers that took the risk of having them on the front which isn’t the convention but now is also gaining a significant momentum. Having this dual-camera modules seems a question of which of the imaging market the manufacturers has to focus into.

To eliminate such confusion, Alcatel went out on full force and comes with these modules both on the front and back with the new Alcatel Flash, does get this mixed-up with the Alcatel’s previous Flash offerings though because this new device is on a different lineage and it’s the first of its kind.

So, making the new Alcatel Flash is its snappers and like we’ve already mentioned, the device is equipped with two dual camera setups both on the front and on the back. For the main shooter, it comes with a twin 13 Megapixel sensor and one is in monochrome and the other one in RGB. These sensors are Sony IMX258 and features an f/2.0 Aperture with 6-Element lenses, Phase Detection AF and is supported by a Dual-tone LED flash and takes 4K videos and supports RAW.

As for the front, there’s an 8 Megapixel sensor accompanied by a complementary 5 Megapixel sensor for a depth of field effect, it too features an f/2.0 Aperture and 6-Element lens, there’s also a Phase Detection AF and a Dual-tone LED flash. If we are to sum it up, this makes the new Alcatel Flash a great Selfie snapper and a more than capable camera phone altogether.

The handset comes with a large 5.5-inch IPS display and is in full-HD. It is powered by a 10-core MediaTek Helio X20 and is supported by 3GB of RAM. It includes a 32GB of flash memory and supports memory expansion through microSD cards.

As a phone, the Alcatel Flash comes pre-loaded Dual-SIM slots, LTE support and backward compatibility with 3G and 2G support . As standard, it comes with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, GPS, USB-C with OTG support and FM Radio.

The rest of the specs includes a rear mounted fingerprint reader and a number of standard smartphone sensors. Keeping the lights on is an 3100 mAh battery and Android 6.0 (Marshmallow) as the daily driver.

Alcatel is yet to unveil the handset’s price and availability but for the features and specs, the company already listed this handset on its website for us to feast our eyes on.
