Google’s Android Go initiative is set to take off with a lot of brands joining the party.
Alcatel 1X is one of the first few smartphones to Android Oreo Go Edition, which aims to provide fluid UI experience despite the underpowered hardware.
The device only has a 1.3GHz quad-core processor from MediaTek, 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. Specs-wise, it’s clear that this device needs some extra help on the software side to make sure everything runs seamlessly.
In an impressive move, Alcatel was able to equip the 1X with a 5.3-inch screen with an 18:9 aspect ratio. However, it only has an FWVGA+ resolution.
Alcatel is also throwing in a decent pair of cameras. There’s a 5-megapixel sensor on the front while at the back is an 8-megapixel camera. Both are interpolated at 8-megapixel and 13-megapixel, respectively.
