All the style of the Alcatel 3 at an even lower price point.



It's quite common these days for smartphone manufacturers to release less-powerful versions of their phones at a lower price point. This gives the more budget-conscious buyer a means to enjoy most of the latest smartphone features without spending more than they can afford.

Typically, this approach is confined to flagship phones like the Apple iPhone XS/iPhone XR or the Samsung Galaxy S10/Galaxy S10e, but Alcatel has decided to jump on the bandwagon with the Alcatel 3L, a "Lite" version of its Alcatel 3 handset. This is an odd approach seeing as the Alcatel 3 is already a budget handset, but it could make sense if you like the sleek look of the Alcatel 3 yet don't need quite so much power for your day-to-day phone use.

Design

  • 5.9-inch screen
  • Extra-wide 19.5:9 aspect ratio
  • Minimal notch and bezel means more screen to enjoy

Camera

  • Dual-lens 13MP/5MP rear camera
  • AI scene detection and Beauty mode promise better images for amateur photographers

Performance

  • Snapdragon 429 should have enough grunt for basic tasks
  • 2GB of RAM is likely to bottleneck multi-tasking performance

Battery

  • 3,500mAh battery should easily keep you going all day
  • No fast-charging means long charge times

Pricing and availability

  • Alcatel hasn't announced pricing or availability for the Alcatel 3L yet.
