[CES 2014] The folks over at Alcatel has revealed yet another smartphone that will join their ranks, where it will come in the form of the Alcatel OneTouch POP C9. This is the largest Android-powered smartphone from Alcatel at the moment where the POP series is concerned, with the smallest member of the family being the POP C1 that has a small 3.5” display, while the largest model is the POP C9 which carries a 5.5” display. All in all, Alcatel intends to offer large screen goodness alongside a quad-core processor without breaking the bank.
Just what can we find underneath the hood of the OneTouch POP C9? Well, for starters, this is a colorful plastic device that will arrive in a shade of colors (Bluish Black, Cherry Red, Full White, Hot Pink or Fresh Turquoise) and at first glance, we would not fault you for thinking that it looks a whole lot like the Samsung Galaxy S3. Yes sir, a generation and a half (since the Galaxy S5 is about to be unveiled later this year) behind in terms of looks, but I guess that is the “price” that you pay if you want the best bang for your buck. Forget about Full HD resolution here, as the POP C9’s 5.5” LCD IPS display has a resolution of 540 x 960 pixels. This results in a pixel density of just 200ppi. Other than that, you will find a quad-core 1.3GHz processor, an 8-megapixel camera at the back that does Full HD video recording, a 2-megapixel shooter up front, and a 2,500mAh battery. [Company Page]
