Alcatel is the name that comes to mind when looking for mid range good quality smartphones. A new unannounced Alcatol device has made its appearance at GFXBench. This is the second time that Alcatel Idol 5 (Alcatel 6060) has appeared on GFXBench. It first appeared on the listing website last month. Both the listings reveal its upcoming specs but with slight differences.
The smartphone will feature a 5.2-inch display with a 1080 x 1920 resolution (FHD). While the previous listing showed a Snapdragon 625 chipset along with an octa-core 2.0GHz CPU and the Adreno 506 GPU, today’s GFXBench listing shows the smartphone with the MediaTek 6757CH SoC under the hood. It is accompanied by an octa-core 2.3GHz CPU and the Mali-T880 GPU coupled with 2GB of RAM while the previous listing had 3GB of RAM. The smartphone comes with 32GB of native storage which can be further expanded via a microSD card.
On the camera front, there is a 12MP main camera capable of doing 4K recording along with an 8MP front facing camera for selfies.
Further, while we earlier saw the device running Android 7.1.1, today’s result shows it with a version of 7.0. This could mean the company is testing both versions of the software.
All this makes us speculate that the company would be coming up with two versions of the smartphones with different processors and software versions meant for different regions. We can just speculate till the time there is an official statement from the company. So stay tuned till then!
