A smartphone listed as “Alcatel 6060” and understood to be the Alcatel Idol 5 has now been spotted being benchmarked on GFXBench and as a result, a number of the specs of the device are being listed. To sum up, the Alcatel Idol 5 looks to be coming with a 5.2-inch display along with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Inside, the Alcatel Idol 5 will come loaded with 2GB RAM (listed as 1.8GB) and 32GB internal storage (listed as 23GB). This smartphone will come powered by a MediaTek MT6757 octa-core SoC – otherwise known as the MediaTek Helio P20. While the rear camera will come in either 12 or 13-megapixel from (listed as 11MP) and the front-facing camera as an 8-megapixel option (listed as 7MP). Closing out the list of noted specs is the likelihood that the Alcatel Idol 5 will come running on Android 7.0 (Nougat) at launch.
Now, it is worth noting that this is not the first time that the Alcatel Idol 5 has been spotted getting benchmarked, and not even the first time that it has been benchmarked on GFXBench. As the same phone was noted passing through GFXBench back in April. The model number was the same, as were most of the specs. Although, the listings do differ on two notable points. Firstly, the previous listing showed the Alcatel Idol 5 coming loaded with 3GB RAM (compared to the 2GB RAM on this listing) and secondly, the Alcatel Idol 5 came powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 (compared to the Helio P20 included in this listing). So it does stand to reason that this smartphone will likely become available in at least two different models, and likewise, priced accordingly.
Of course, the Alcatel Idol normally comes along with a sibling ‘S’ device and that also does seem to be the case this year as the Alcatel Idol 5S was also spotted passing through GFXBench recently. On that occasion, most of the specs were akin to what is listed here, as that is also a smartphone that will come powered by the Helio P20. In fact, virtually all of the specs between the Alcatel Idol 5S and this Alcatel Idol 5 are the same, with the exception being that the Alcatel Idol 5S comes packing 3GB RAM.
