Alcatel One Touch Hero 2 is official, packs octa-core CPU
The Alcatel One Touch Hero 2 has been announced at IFA 2014. Just like its predecessor, the Hero 2 features a 6" TFT LCD display of 1080p resolution (367 ppi), Dragontrail glass for protection and oleophobic coating. The Hero 2 keeps the general proportions of the original hero, but is a bit thinner at 7.9mm.
Powering the Hero 2 is a MediaTek MT6592 chipset with an octa-core 2GHz Cortex-A7 CPU and 2G of RAM. Internal storage is 16GB expandable by up to 32GB via the microSD card slot.
On the connectivity side, there's Wi-Fi 802.11n, Bluetooth 2.0, NFC and LTE. The battery of the Hero 2 is 3,100mAh rated at a 10hours of 3G talk time (4.5h in 4G mode) and stand-by time of 380 hours.
The Hero 2 comes with a stylus akin to the Samsung S Pen. It boasts optimized handwriting recognition capability, but we're yet to test the company's claims. At the back, there's a 13MP OIS camera recording video of up to 1080p@30fps
Alcatel will start selling the One Touch Hero 2 in Europe by the end of September. The price of the phone is €350 and there's no information if the phone will make it outside Europe.
