Alcatel Fierce 4 launching today at MetroPCS, will hit T-Mobile this fall


UPDATE: The Alcatel Fierce 4’s price on the MetroPCS website is now listed at $69 after rebate.


After announcing the TRU for MetroPCS earlier this month, Alcatel today revealed another new device that’s headed to Metro.

The Alcatel Fierce 4 runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow on a 5.5-inch 1280×720 display. It’s got an 8-megapixel camera on its rear, and on its face there’s a 5-megapixel camera with an 84-degree wide angle lens to help you fit more people into your selfies.

Inside of the Fierce 4 lives a 1.1GHz quad-core Snapdragon 210 processor, 2GB of RAM, and 16GB of storage (10.8GB available to the user). The Fierce 4 also includes a microSD slot and support for Android 6.0’s Adoptable Storage feature. Powering this whole package is a 2500mAh battery.

Finally, Alcatel’s new Fierce 4 includes support for LTE bands 2, 4, and 12.

The Alcatel Fierce 4 is available in MetroPCS stores starting today, Aug. 29. Metro’s website lists the Fierce 4 with a price of $119 after $10 instant rebate, but Alcatel’s announcement mentions that the Fierce 4 will be available for $69 “with eligible phone activation or upgrade,” so you may want to inquire about that offer at your local MetroPCS store.

The Fierce 4 will be available from T-Mobile this fall.

While the Fierce 4 is a bit pricier than its budget TRU sibling, it offers several upgrades, too. Those include doubled RAM and storage, a higher-resolution display, and Android 6.0 out of the box. If those features have your interest piqued, you can visit your friendly neighborhood MetroPCS store to check out the Alcatel Fierce 4.

    What about carrier aggregation? Does it support that (little fact)? ;)

    • Flan Mandhersson

      Carrier aggrivation is so common for t-mo! I feel your pain, but it’ll probably be there because it’s still T-mo, even if it is a different phone! Hope that helps! ;)

      This phone is just the Fierce XL with Marshmallow, there is no other difference. The Fierce 4 is $20 more. Apparently that is the going rate for an OS upgrade.

      • Pretty much. The only hardware upgrade is the front facing camera. (2MP XL 5MP Fierce 4)

        • Drewski

          Not the same phone. Sorry buds, this phone has Enhanced Voice Services, Adavnced Messaging, Video Calling, Enhanced Wifi Calling. Try again.

      • Drewski

        No it’s not because it does not come with implimented features like Video Calling, Advanced Messaging, Enhanced Voice Services, Enhanced wifi calling. Plus the phone has a more advanced look to it. Definitely not the same.

        • ShadowFalls

          You apparently missed those abilities on the Fierce XL.

        • Drewski

          Sorry but the Alcatel Fierce XL does not come with Enhanced Voice Services, Advanced Messaging, Enhanced wifi Calling or Video Calling right out of the box nor did it received it’s update. Try again Bro.

    I dig the wallpaper.

    This is about as exciting as yesterday’s milk left out on the counter.

  • Fabian

    What a waste! 720p is too much, we need more 480p phones. We need to save bandwidth, pixels, plastic, glass, metals, energy… T-Mobile needs us. The planet needs us.

  • Does anyone know any new information about Alcatel’s high-end Windows 10 phone? I haven’t heard anything about that since late May.

    • Acdc1a

      Blu just announced they’re getting out of Windows, it wouldn’t be surprising if Alcatel also decided to scrap plans. WP is flaming out fast much to my dismay.

    Nothing attract me, serious, nothing. Definetly Go with ZMax Pro.

    • ShadowFalls

      No question. Best bank for your buck with the Zmax Pro.

  • Drewski

    True, but this is still way better than the XL, Coolpad Catalyst, Zte avid plus, LG K7/K10. At least give it that credit there Bro.
