The Alcatel 5 sports a 5.7-inch FullView 18:9 display with HD+ resolution housed in a smoothly curved unibody frame with metallic matte finish, which is one of the main highlights of the phone.

Underneath, it is powered by a slightly ageing octa core MediaTek MT6750 chipset, which has been in use on Android phones for more than two years now. Based on the image above, it has 16GB of internal storage and 1GB of RAM, however, according to our source, that's 2GB of memory. But, we are still hoping that its 3GB/32GB combination.

Another key selling point of the Alcatel 5 is its camera department, it has a total of 3 modules - 2 in the front and 1 on its back, which is something different than the usual arrangement. The main shooter comes with a 12MP resolution and an f-stop of f/2.2, while the front snappers are composed of 13MP + 5MP sensors with f/2.0 and f/2.4 aperture respectively.

Other details worth mentioning are 3000mAh battery, dual SIM with LTE connectivity, fingerprint sensor, face unlock, and USB Type-C port. It runs on Android 7.0 Nougat, and we are not sure whether Alcatel has plans to upgrade it to at least Oreo in the future.

It is now available for purchase for Php8,490 or exactly 1,500 pesos more affordable than the Alcatel 5V.
