Alcatel OT986 hits China – yet another high end smartphone

Alcatel OT986 hits China – yet another high end smartphone

When we talk about smartphones, we generally talk about bigger brands like HTC, Samsung, LG or Motorola .  Increasingly, however, we have companies like Alcatel muscling into the conversations of  “high-end smartphones”, much like Huawei and ZTE . Alcatel, generally known for low-end phones recently introduced their newest smartphone, the OT986.

The Android 4.0 smartphone comes with a 4.5-inch 1280×720 HD IPS display, a 1.5 GHz dual-core TI OMAP 4460 processor, a 5 MP camera with LED flash and 2 MP front-facing camera for video chatting.  Additionally there is 1GB RAM, 8GB of built-in storage space, HSPA support, and a form factor that is only 9.75 mm thin.

A device with high end hardware like this would normally cost a pretty penny, however Alcatel is also planning to bring a cheap version with 1.2 GHz dual-core processor and 4 GB of built-in storage.

Currently limited to the Chinese market (TCL S900), the handset will cost 1,999 yuan, which comes in at about $315 or €252, according to the current exchange rate. So it would be good to see a device with fair stuff under the hood in US or UK market with an affordable price tag. If Alcatel brings this smartphone to UK or America, would you consider picking it up?

Would you take a risk on an Alcatel phone or do you prefer more name brand stuff?
