Alcatel TRU arrives at MetroPCS with Android and $29 price tag


Alcatel and MetroPCS are teaming up to launch a new device called the TRU.

The Alcatel TRU is now available from MetroPCS for $29 after instant and mail-in rebates. In exchange for your $29, you’ll get a phone that runs Android 5.0 Lollipop on a 5-inch 854×480 display and has 5-megapixel rear and 2-megapixel front cameras.

Inside of the TRU’s shell lives a quad-core Snapdragon 210 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, and a microSD slot for adding more storage. There’s also a 2,000mAh battery powering the whole package. The TRU supports LTE bands 2, 4, and 12.

To get a closer look at the Alcatel TRU and its faux leather backside, you can visit MetroPCS’s site using the link below.

    8GB of storage… Minus the amount taken by the OS, carry the 2 and yeah, not gonna be installing a whole hell of alot of apps there.

    Would make a good first smartphone for a kid, i suppose.

    $20 more can get you much better hardware.

      • I’m cheap

        … because I don’t have money because I’m the only one defending T-Mobile against all the paid trolls from the carriers in all the forums and Reddit and no one is helping. It’s not fair.
