Back in February, Alcatel announced the One Touch Idol X, a Full HD smartphone with a quad core chip. However, that phone never made it to local shores. It’s probably all for the best since Alcatel has seen fit to upgrade the One Touch Idol X and give it an octa core processor.

The Alcatel One Touch Idol X+ as it is called comes with MediaTek’s new octa core MT6592 chip, a Mali 450 GPU, 2GB RAM and 16GB of internal storage. The Idol X+ doesn’t look that much different from its predecessor, making this more of a spec refresh than anything else. Still, it’s nice that Alcatel decided to offer an octa core smartphone for 2014.

Looking to grab the Alcatel One Touch Idol X+ once it hits Philippine shores? No word on pricing or when it will actually get here. It costs $330 in China at the moment so it will likely cost somewhere around Php18k when it gets here.

      2 Ghz MediaTek’s MT6592 octo-core SoC
      2GB RAM .
      Battery capacity of 3000mAh .
      Latest Android OS – 4.2 or 4.3 .

  2. The Idol X is already available at 15.2k to 17999 php at Alcatel Kiosks. I’m wondering why it’s taken so long to release it here. If they continue to do that, expect Idol X+ to arrive in Nov-Dec 2014. But I hope it’ll arrive sooner.

  3. im seeing some great specs about this phone..let’s hope it sticks to the $330/php15-18k range or lower,or else alcatel will just have another obscenely-priced-for-the-specs phone, like the idol ultra.
