alcatel launched four devices at the MWCin Barcelona in February, but none of them was a flagship. Now leaked specs on GFXBench reveal to us that a new Idol is in sight - probably goin by the alcatel Idol 5 name.
As you can see from the image, the CPU has eight Cortex A53 cores, clocked at 2 GHz and the GPU is Adreno 506 which corresponds to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset. The screen is 5.2Ē with Full HD resolution and it all runs Android 7.1.1 Nougat.
The RAM is 3 GB while the storage is 32 GB (22 GB available). Idol 5 will have main 12 MP camera on the back and a 8 MP one on the front.
Thanks for the tip, Gideon!
SnapDragon SoC is always welcome considering its capability to easily be rooted/custom build roms compared to close sourced MediaTek, Exynos, Kirin, etc.
Can't wait for this to get the BlackBerry rebrand treatment. 625 with guaranteed monthly security patches is a win.
They should advertise idol 4s and unlock the bootloader too just like the idol 3, then the sales must get a big boost. I am still using idol 3!
