The Alcatel 1X Evolve is launching at Metro by T-Mobile on December 10. It features a 5.34-inch 960×480 display with 18:9 aspect ratio and a 1.1GHz quad-core MediaTek MT6739WM processor. There’s a 5MP camera above the screen for all your selfie needs and an 8MP camera with LED flash around back.
Also packed into the Alcatel 1X Evolve is 16GB of built-in storage, 9GB of which is available to the user. If that’s not enough storage for your needs, you can add a microSD card to get even more. There’s 2GB of RAM included, too, as well as a 2460mAh battery, FM radio, a microUSB port, and Android 8.1 Oreo.
One other notable feature of the Alcatel 1X Evolve is its support for 600MHz LTE, which reaches farther, is better at penetrating buildings than mid-band LTE, and has now been deployed by T-Mobile in more than 1,500 U.S. cities and towns. We don’t yet know how much the Alcatel 1X Evolve will cost, but given its spec list, this device could be an affordable way for Metro by T-Mobile customers to get onto that 600MHz LTE coverage.
