There’s a new big screen phone coming to MetroPCS.
The Alcatel 7 is launching at MetroPCS today, August 13th, at a price of $179.99. MetroPCS is also offering the Alcatel 7 for free to customers who port their number and sign up for an unlimited LTE plan, while customers with a new line of service or qualified upgrade can get it for $129.00.
Specs for the Alcatel 7 include a 6-inch 2160×1080 display and 8MP camera on its face, and around back there’s a dual rear camera setup with 12MP and 2MP sensors that let you add a blurry background effect to your photos. The rear cameras also offer a re-focus feature and a social mode.
Inside the Alcatel 7 is a 2.5GHz octa-core MediaTek MT6763T processor, 2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage. There’s a microSD slot in there, too, so that you can add more storage if you need it. Other features include a rear fingerprint reader (including the ability to assign your fingerprints to launch your favorite apps), face unlock, a 4000mAh battery with quick charging support, and Android 8.1 Oreo.
The Alcatel 7’s cellular connectivity includes support for LTE bands 2, 4, 5, 12, 66, and 71. Support for UMTS bands 2, 4, and 5 as well as GSM 850/900/1800/1900 is included, too.
