|Alcatel One Touch Pop S7, First MediaTek-LTE Smartphone|
MediaTek and Alcatel announced today the first MediaTek-LTE powered smartphone, the Alcatel OneTouch Pop S7. The POP S7 will bring the 4G LTE connectivity worldwide with a price tag that will be affordable to consumers.
I mentioned affordable because Dan Dery, the CMO of Alcatel, said that it will be their first entry-level LTE capable smartphone. It features a 5-inch IPS display powered by a MediaTek MT6290 quad-core processor clocked at 1.3GHz each plus a multi-mode LTE modem.
It will be available in Europe, Middles East, Africa and Asia-Pacific this coming Q2.
