Boost Mobile, which so happens to be under the Sprint umbrella, has started to kick off sales of a spanking new Android-powered smartphone that hails from the manufacturing lines of Alcatel. Known as the Alcatel OneTouch Conquest, what separates this particular device from the others would be the fact that it is dust- and water-resistant (thanks to the IP67 certification), making it one of the few handsets from Alcatel to bear that mark. While it might not have the latest version of the Android operating system, at least it comes with Android 5.0 Lollipop right out of the box.
This particular model of the Alcatel OneTouch Conquest will retail for $129.99 a pop sans contract, which means you can tell by the price point alone that it is not a device that will duke it out with the rest of the high end market. Hardware specifications point to a 5” 720p display with Dragontrail Glass as protection, a quad-core 1.2GHz processor, LTE connectivity, a 2MP selfie camera, a 5MP camera at the back, 1GB RAM, 8GB of internal memory that can be augmented via a microSD memory card slot, and a 2500 mAh battery. Any takers for this particular handset, especially if you’re current contract is about to run out? [Press Release]
