Alcatel just threw us a curve ball. The mobile company announced a smartphone with dual rear cameras AND dual front cameras. In a mobile landscape where dual rear cameras are starting to be the norm and dual selfie shooters are beginning to make waves, the Alcatel Flash is a complete but delightful surprise #mobilemagic
Alcatel is about to release a record-breaking smartphone. Alcatel Flash is the first phone with dual rear AND front cameras powered by a deca-core CPU. Curious? Good. The phone sports a 5.5-inch full HD screen on a metallic body with metal back finish. Under the hood, you’ll find 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage memory (yep, it’s not ideal, but if you’re a camera man, that part will soften the blow).
Alcatel Flash boasts two 13MP rear cameras with f/2.0 and PDAF. One of them takes color photos while the other captures B&W images. Alcatel says this combo allows the phone to take more detailed pictures with better color accuracy.
The dual selfie shooter is an 8MP + 5MP sensor mix, both with the same aperture size. These allows you to adjust the blur as you see it fit thanks to the Super Selfie Mode. There’s a similar feature for the rear cameras, too. Manual Focus Mode allows you to change the position of the focus post-capture. Oh, and if you have a specific editing routine, you’ll be happy to know the rear cameras shoot RAW, too.
Besides said specs and camera setup, worth mentioning is the fingerprint scanner, situated on the back of the phone, and the 3,100mAh battery cell. There’s no telling how much will the handset cost but we do know where it’s going to sell. Unfortunately, for now, only those who live in the Middle East will have access to it.
