It appears that the French mobile phone manufacturer, Alcatel, has a new device in the works. What is surprising though is the fact that the device features a relatively fair specifications sheet. The company is solely known for its cheapish entry-level smartphones.
The famous mobile whistle-blower @evleaks posted a photo of the company’s forthcoming device, which they suggest it’s called Fury and is a part of the Onetouch lineup. The tweet also states that the specific sample is headed to MetroPCS network.

The tipster was kind enough to unveil the handset’s tech specifications – at least some of them.
- Display: 4.5-inches qHD (960 x 540)
- Processor: Quad-core clocked at 1.2GHz
- RAM: 1GB
- Storage: 4GB
- Camera: 8MPix primary sensor, LED flash, HD video
- Software: Android 4.1 Jellybean
- Connectivity: LTE
We are aware that the current intel is deficient, though it’s enough to figure out that this is a mid-range phone we are talking about – did not expect a premium device by Alcatel to be frank. The specs as mentioned above seem to promise for a mid-entry device.
For whatever reason though, @evleaks photo resolves at a rather low resolution and could not scrutinize the device’s hardware thoroughly. From what I was able to see, the device will exhibit a plastic body. The photo does not showcase its back; hence we can’t see if the plastic has a glossy or matte finish.
Other sources, such as The Trust Agency, suggest that the device will be 4G LTE compatible as well.
If we receive any further information regarding the device’s specs, availability or pricing, we will keep you posted.
