The maker of OS-agnostic handsets of Pixi 3 series, Alcatel OneTouch has shown off two new smartphones: Pop 2 (5) Premium and Pop 2 (5) at Consumer Electronics Show. Apparently, this TCL-owned company has brought a slew of mobiles with decent specs as well as its first smartwatch during CES 2015 to make its stronghold in booming world of smart devices.
Hashing about Alcatel OneTouch Pop 2 (5), it's decked with 64-bit quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor clocked at 1.2 GHz operating frequency. The most highlighted part of handset is its compatibility with 4G-LTE networks and inclusion of Google's latest operating system Android 5.0 Lollipop.
Notably, firm has appropriately baptized its brand-new scion because it features a 5-inch FWVGA TFT display. Here, device's display renders Capacitive 2 points touch with gesture and a pixel resolution of 480x854p. Touching the memory front, phone is comprised with 1GB RAM alongside 8GB of inbuilt storage, which can be enlarged upto 32GB via a microSD card.

Moreover, it's fitted with 5-megapixel autofocus rear camera along with a 0.3-megapixel selfie shooter.
On the other hand, OneTouch Pop 2 (5) Premium is basically an advanced version of above mentioned device or we can say it's an amelioration of Pop 2 (5). However, handheld holds resemblance with its sibling at some aspects such as memory, processor, battery and connectivity.

Well, Alcatel OneTouch is still tight-lipped about pricing and availability details of both editions, so consumers that are eager to get their hands on smartphones will have to wait for a while.
