Mobilink and Alcatel have entered into an agreement for introducing Alcatel IDOL 3 smartphones. The uniqueness of this phone is that it is reversible which means that you can hold it from any angle, and the screen will reverse. There are speaker and microphone on each end. Therefore, there is no need to change direction.
What Alcatel IDOL 3 holds?
The IDOL 3 delivers on three key user experiences: sound, camera, and display. Dual front-facing JBL Audio speakers make the IDOL 3 an on-the-go sound system, without the need of an additional Bluetooth speaker. The 13MP main camera has an industry-leading Sony IMX sensor, offering superior low-light performance.
And the display has also been specially tuned by Technicolor, giving colors on the 5.5” Full HD screen more richness and vibrancy, and better viewing in sunlight conditions. Additionally, Alcatel Idol3 comes with free JBL in-ear earphones worth Rs7000.
The Alcatel IDOL 3 is thin, light, and fast enough to do just about anything a user wants from a proper smartphone. On the inside, it has an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor, 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage running a very close stock version of Android 5.0.2 Lollipop.
The phone offers unique enhancements like the fully reversible user interface that makes the screen adaptive to be right side up, even if the phone itself is upside down.
The device will soon be available at all Mobilink Business Centers for an approximate price of PKR 25,999. Customers availing this opportunity will also be given six months of free Jazz internet (subject to the limit of 1GB per month).
Speaking about the reason behind the collaboration with Alcatel, Muhammad Ali Khan, Head of Data & Devices – Mobilink commented, “We are committed to consistently introduce the most appealing and innovative smartphones in the market in support of our digital enablement goals. Alcatel IDOL 3 provides customers with the opportunity to experience Mobilink’s superior data services on one of 2016’s best budget phones.”
Nauman Durrani, General Manager Middle East, Pakistan, and Egypt – Alcatel stated, “Alcatel is one of the largest handset manufacturers in the world and our goal is democratizing innovation. We are pleased to launch Alcatel Idol 3 in Pakistan with a partnership with Mobilink.”
The phone is being provided by i2 Pakistan who is the official distributor of Alcatel Mobiles in the country after a formal agreement signup a few weeks ago with the principal company.
