Alcatel OneTouch 995 with Android Gingerbread (upgradeable to ICS) coming soon
Alcatel, which usually makes low-cost handsets, is getting ready to launch a relatively high-end Android smartphone soon.
Called Alcatel OneTouch 995, the new device has been spotted in the Netherlands and, according to GSM HelpDesk, should be officially introduced at MWC 2012.
The 995 looks pretty good, runs Android 2.3.4 Gingerbread, and features a 4.3 inch touchscreen display (WVGA I assume), Wi-Fi, 1.4GHz single core processor, and a 5MP rear camera. The nicest thing is that the handset will be reportedly updated to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, although it’s not clear when exactly it’s going to happen.
We’ll certainly keep an eye on the Alcatel OneTouch 995, and bring new details on it as soon as they emerge.
