Alcatel Flash Plus 2 spotted on GFXBench

An upcoming device from Alcatel has been spotted on the GFXBench benchmarking website, suggesting that the Chinese firm is about to launch a new smartphone. Dubbed Alcatel Flash Plus 2, the device is likely to be the successor of the Alcatel Flash Plus which was released last year.

According to the listing on GFXBench, the Alcatel Flash Plus 2 smartphone will come in a 4.6-inch display with 1920 x 1080 pixels screen resolution. The display is touted to have five finger touch support and other features.

Powering the device under the hood is a 1.8 GHz Mediatek MT6755 octa-core processor which is further paired with Arm Mali T860 GPU. It also sports 2 GB of RAM and runs on Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

The Flash Plus 2 also comes with a built-in 16GB of internal storage. However up to 10GB of this storage will be reserved for the user’s desired install apps due to preinstalled apps on the phone. As is the custom with contemporary smartphones, there’ll be a microSD slot if more storage space is needed.

The benchmark listing also touts the Alcatel Flash Plus 2 to have a 12 megapixel autofocus rear shooter with LED flash and a 7-megapixel camera on the front suitable for clear selfie images and video calling purposes.

The smartphone is further backed by a non-removable Li-Ion 3000 mAh capacity battery.

Other features the Alcatel Flash Plus 2 has to offer include Bluetooth, WiFi, GPS, and a Micro USB port. It also has  barometer, accelerometer, light, proximity and gyroscope sensors as well.

Once the smartphone is officially released in the market, it will come in Volcanic Grey and Mica White color options, the listing said.

This is not the first phone Alcatel will release this year. During the recent Mobile World Congress 2016 at Barcelona, Spain, Alcatel unveiled a variety of Android smartphones including the Alcatel Pop 4+, Pop 4, and Pop 4S.
