Alcatel has also made some noise in IFA 2017 on Berlin. Other than the new A5 series, the company also introduced two new A7 devices. The Alcatel A7 and A7 XL boast new designs, and respective features to fit what’s more important to the consumers.

Both the Alcatel A7 and A7 XL will sit on the already populated midrange segment. But neither of them looks identical to the competition — a rare feat on this category. Both are made in metal with the A7 on a metallic with a spin-effect texture at the back. Meanwhile, the A7 XL looks more low-key with its matte tint.

But other than the design, the two also shines on their own respective offerings.

This thing packs a large 4000mAh battery for those who are tired of charging their device every night. That’s 1000mAh short from ASUS’ battery-packed offering but still relatively large.
