We’ve already seen tons of gaming laptops and other consumer tech in CES 2019. This time, we have a smartphone. The Alcatel 1x might not be the most exciting device of all, but still worth talking about.
There’s a decent 5.5-inch HD+ screen on the front protected with 2.5D Dragontrail glass. The Alcatel 1x 2019 also has 5-megapixel selfie camera on the top of that, and a 13-megapixel + 2-megapixel combo on the back.
It’s powered by a 1.5GHz MediaTek MT6739 quad-core processor, with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of expandable storage. Those are some pretty decent hardware for a device at this price.
On the downside, it comes with the standard Android 8.1 Oreo software. It would have been better if the more efficient Go Edition software was installed — just like its predecessor — considering that it’s only running on a four-core processor and only 2GB of memory.
