The alcatel Idol 5S is now official, which made us suspect that the company might be skipping number 5, but the phone is apparently still being developed. The phone appeared on the FCC website, and its design was leaked in full glory. We also know this is the actual name since the manual was also updated.
Looking at the device, we see some differences from the alcatel Idol 5S. It does not have the front-facing speakers, while on the back the dual-LED flash is positioned on the right side of the camera instead of being below it.
The FCC listing also reveals the aluminium-body phone has a model number 6058. From docs we see the alcatel Idol 5 will run on MediaTek MT6753V chipset. A similar SoC can be found in the alcatel A5 LED, launched back at MWC.
I had a idol 4 and used for a month. i sold it because 16 gb was not enough for me but that was an awesome phone. i thought they will keep that design and update hardware. what happened to you guys?. world was waiting for the idol 5 and this what we ...
It's evident the Idol 5 is a new budget offering, while the 5S is the successor to last years Idol 4. There most likely will be a 5S pro, the new flagship.
