It was reported recently that Alcatel is going to make waves at the Mobile World Congress 2017 in Barcelona next month by launching five new smartphones. It’s also believed that one of those smartphones is going to be a modular device much like the LG G5. The company today sent out invites to the press for its MWC 2017 press conference and the invite hints at its modular smartphone.
The invite sent out by Alcatel today features the tag line “Light Up,” which suggests that one of the modules for the handset is going to add a colorful LED panel. You can see that much on the image that’s included in the invite itself.
Reports suggest that the LEDs in this panel will dance to music in a manner similar to the JBL Pulse. Other modules may enhance camera, sound, battery life, and additional functionality. Not much is known about the modules that Alcatel will offer with this smartphone so this is just speculation at this point in time.
There isn’t a lot known about the specifications of this handset as well so we’ll have to wait until Alcatel’s press conference on February 27 to find out more. It will be interesting to see how consumers embrace this new modular device particularly after LG more or less admitted defeat with the LG G5 and decided to ditch the modular concept for the G6.
