Alcatel 7 features 6-inch display and 4000mAh battery, arrives at MetroPCS today


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.

    To all phone manufacturers:
    Can you please release a mid-tier / with the following minimum specs at UNflagship prices( OR make a rootabe flagship with ALL specs @ highest #’s, which has NEVER occurred either)-
    6+” / HD+ / 4+/64+GB / NFC / SD slot / no eSim(dual-sim preferable / USB-C 2+ / ALL the TMO bands & features / Unlockable w/o resulting restrictions or penalties / Multi-User support, guaranteed upgrades & fixes to common bugs, security patches AND minimum 1 future OS version / IF IR & removable battery included you can lower previously stated specs “a smidgen{not too much)”.

    Anything less makes for a starter/casual, severely limited phone. And there’s not a single flagship at any price with all previously stated features included.

    Ehh…life blows,,,and then we die.

      You’ve just described the perfect midrange phone, and I totally agree with you, but too many phone manufacturers are just too busy gimping their phones and making sure they fit their plan for forced obsolescence (sealed, hard to exchange battery, not enough ram to work well when the next Android update hits, etc.) when they’re not just blindly copying Apple for no damn reason (no headphone jack, notch, dongles).

      At this point I wonder who’s in charge of decisions at these phone making companies and how they’re even managing to keep their jobs.

      That would never get made. Mid Rangers have to be limited so that you want to buy a flagship. If you make good mid range phones with decent specs, there is no reason to buy the flagship.

    2GB of RAM, and 32GB of storage.
    This should be $79 not $179.

      It is a large screen & at high resolution…great battery…face unlock….all Tmo bands…not that bad.
      Just make a version with more ram and storage. I would glad–err grudgingly pay even double that price.

      The phone actually looks nice, if it had NFC I would definitely consider getting it.

        I looked everywhere to confirm this but couldn’t find any mentions- another nail in its coffin.
