Alcatel is seeing the space for a phablet with its 10.1-inch tablet that can also be used for making voice calls if the user feels comfortable doing so. But first the complete specifications of the new device.
The dimensions of the tablet are: 260x155x8.95mm and its weight, 465 grams. The IPS display offers a screen resolution of 1280x800pixels and Alcatel has provided the back potion of the tablet with a textured finish giving users a tight grip on the device.
The processor on the Alcatel A3 10 tablet is a quad core one that clocks a speed of 1.1Ghz, which might not be substantial. The RAM is also just 2GB and the internal memory capacity 16GB. A microSD card, can pf course enhance this storage up to 128GB.
The latest Android Nougat Version 7 ensures the buyer is up to date on the OS. The rear and front cameras are 5MP and 2MP respectively; so, nothing very exciting to write home about.
The battery, however, is a powerful 4600mAh and that should stand in good stead when carrying the tablet while on the move. According to the company, the tablet can last up to seven hours after a full charge. There are also two speakers provided for better audio and multimedia experience.
You cannot imagine a smartphone or tablet being launched in the Indian market nowadays without enabling the 4G VoLTE support and Alcatel has kept in line with that and the Alcatel A3 10 tablet surely allows 4G connectivity.
As mentioned, the voice calling support makes the tablet a better option for some customers who donâ€™t mind such large sized devices. They may use a headphone for making and receiving calls and avert having a separate phone.
The pricing of this new device is also quite attractive Rs 9, 999. It is being sold through online retailer Flipkart.
