New Alcatel 3V offers up gigantic screen and battery

The phone heads to T-Mobile's prepaid brand Metro

Alcatel on Friday announced its latest smartphone, the 3V, is on its way to Metro in the coming weeks. The Alcatel 3V features entry-level performance paired with a massive display and generous battery.

Alcatel is the fourth-largest phone maker in North America and often makes low-cost alternatives to Samsung, LG, and others. Its phones are typically paired with prepaid and MVNO carriers.

The Alcatel 3V runs Android 9 Pie with Google Assistant baked into the experience. In terms of power, there’s a 2.0GHz octa-core processor with 3GB RAM with 32GB of storage. Users who need more room can add a microSD card with up to 32GB extra media.

The main draw here is the 6.7-inch display with 1440 x 720 pixel resolution. Protected by Dragontail Pro glass, it’s among the biggest you’ll find on a phone.

The 4,000mAh battery is no slouch, either. It’s big enough to last most users around two days and charges via USB Type-C.

As for cameras, you’ll find a 16-megapixel main rear shooter with a 5-megapixel sensor for depth. Around front is an 8-megapixel camera and the experience is complimented with AI scene detection tech and Google Lens.

The Alcatel 3V is coming soon to T-Mobile‘s prepaid brand, Metro. Pricing and exact availability is not yet known. Canadian customers will also see the phone at Freedom Mobile.
