Every so often in the world of telephony comes a fashion that devastates everything. We are seeing it with screens with “notch” but, above all, with a new format that is being imposed, the 18: 9 format . These elongated screen , until now, they were aiming for the highest range but finally, brands like Alcatel are bringing this to the general public with the first smartphones 18: 9 already found by below 250 euros.
And is that Alcatel with their Series 5, Series 3 and Series 1 , from which we could see an advance at CES 2018 and then try them at the MWC 2018 in Barcelona , it was the first in 2018 that takes the 18: 9 format to an affordable range without, therefore, sacrificing quality and solvency in its terminals.
Maybe you have to pause and ask yourself why are these coming now screens 18: 9 ? It is true that it can be considered a “fashion” but it really is a format that brings many advantages in a portable device. The main and most palpable is that we have much larger screens in less space.
In broad strokes, in a mobile that reaches 6 inches 18: 9 we have the ergonomics of a 5 “mobile in 16: 9 format, that is, we have a screen with much more space but more stylized, so it fits the perfection in a mobile. For example, we have more space to have two open applications on split screen or a better use of applications that have more space to put control buttons.
Evidently, with each innovation the same thing happens, that we only see it in high-end phones. However, in 2018 has been Alcatel which has opened the ban with its first affordable terminals and that they offer screens in this format 18: 9 . All without sacrificing aspects such as design, with spectacular and modern finishes, at very competitive prices.
Among those released are the Alcatel 5 , a device with a 5.7-inch screen, a 12 MP camera, 2 GB of RAM or an octa-core MT6750 processor. On the other hand we also have the Alcatel 1X Y Alcatel 1C , something more modest in benefits and focused on the always competitive entry range.
But among the releases of the brand, undoubtedly, those that stand out are those of the series 3. We speak, for example of the Alcatel 3 , a computer with 5.5 inch screen and just 8.5 mm thick, 2 GB of RAM and a 13 MP camera, 3,000 mAh battery, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB for storage. In this series is also the Alcatel 3V , the equipment with 6-inch FullHD + screen, which reduces the thickness to 8.05 mm and has dual camera of 12 MP, 2 GB of RAM or 16 GB for storage. Last but also interesting, the Alcatel 3X , It offers a 5.7 inch screen, 3 GB of RAM, 13 MP for the camera and 32 GB of storage.
As always, you can consult the complete technical sheets in the links that you can find in the name of each mobile in the text but we also encourage you to see their differences in the mobile comparator of MovilZona.
