After an initial day with the new Acer gaming chair that massages and the electric Porsche Taycan as stars, the IFA 2019 continues its course. This time it is up to TCL Communication with its Plex with assisted display and this Alcatel 3X, called to give a lot of war in the mid-range for its focus on image quality at a very contained price.
Technical Data of Alcatel 3X
With a price more than adjusted, this Alcatel 3X has its main claim in image quality , something that it achieves on the one hand through a versatile triple camera, which continues to democratize until it reaches terminals of this price range, and its immersive screen of 20: 9 for content display. Also, do not forget about attractive details such as the NFC or the 3.5 mm jack.
Beyond the triple camera – one of the main claims of this terminal – in which we will delve further, the design of the Alcatel 3X is conservative . In fact, it is quite reminiscent of what we have been seeing during the last months in the middle and entry ranges.
With a reduced notch on the front and a 2.5D glass case, the most striking is its 20: 9 format to house the immersive screen Super Full View of 6.52 inches diagonally, one of the protagonists of the phone. TCL has achieved with this design a relationship between screen and body of 89.24%, thus achieving high compaction.
The approach of TCL with its Alcatel 3X is to focus on image quality , something that they aspire to achieve with this panel with HD + resolution that delivers 16 million colors.
Another notable point at the design level is the existence of a button for direct access to the Google assistant to launch applications or activate Google Lens quickly. It also integrates 3.5 mm jack port to continue listening to music with wired headphones.
More limited is this Alcatel 3X in the hardware section, integrating an eight-core Mediatek Helio P23 chipset that will be accompanied by 4 or 6 GB of RAM, depending on the selected storage. Thus, we can choose between 64GB capacity or 128GB , expandable by a microSD card other 128GB.
One of the strengths at the component level is its 4,000 mAh battery, a figure that according to TCL Communication would provide 24 hours in 4G network conversation. Of course, with a charging time of 2.7 hours according to the manufacturer, we are not facing a terminal with fast charging.
One of the great strengths of this Alcatel 3X is its triple rear camera , which continues to extend in the catalog of smartphones on the market, thus reaching more and more affordable models such as the phone in question.
In this case, it is composed of three 16MP, 8MP and 5MP lenses, with a respective aperture size of F1.8, F2.2 and F2.4, thus achieving a versatile rear camera in your proposal.
Thus, the integration of this trio would offer the user the functions of wide angle, real-time bokeh, night video, AI scene detection, panoramic photography and HDR.
In the front, just inside the mini notch, we find the 8MP selfie camera with fixed focus and flash.
