In addition to announcing a number of smartphones, Alcatel has also today unveiled two new Android tablets at MWC 2018. Although, they are essentially the same tablet made available in two different sizes. These are the Alcatel 1T7 and 1T10 Android tablets, both of which are designed to be highly affordable options, with the 1T7 set to arrive with a starting price of €69,99 and the 1T10 starting at €99.99. According to Alcatel, both models are set to become available in Europe, Latin America, and Asia, beginning in the second quarter of 2018.
Starting with the smaller of the two, the Alcatel 1T7 features a 7-inch IPS display along with a 1,024 x 600 resolution. Inside, the Alcatel 1T7 comes loaded with 1GB RAM, 8GB storage, and is powered by a MediaTek MT8321A/D quad-core processor. This tablet includes a 2-megapixel rear camera along with a VGA front-facing camera. MicroSD card support is included, as is a 2,580 mAh battery – which is rated to offer up to seven hours of usage off a single charge. As for the Alcatel 1T10, its larger size results in a 10.1-inch display along with a 1,280 x 800 resolution. Inside, and while the RAM is the same as the 1T7 (1GB), the storage has been boosted up to 16GB, and the processor in use is the standard MediaTek MT8321. Likewise, the same 2-megapixel rear camera is in play, although the front-facing camera on this occasion is a second 2-megapixel camera. Another noticeable difference is in the battery department as the Alcatel 1T10 comes loaded with a 4,000 mAh battery – which the company states will offer up to eight hours of usage per charge.
Some of the other features on offer with both models are the employment of Android 8.0 (Oreo), along with the inclusion of an ‘Eye Care Mode’ (designed to reduce the effects of blue light) and a ‘Kids Mode.’ The latter of which is a version of the operating system designed with younger users in mind. Not only does this mode offer a selection of pre-installed apps and games suitable for younger users, but it also comes with additional settings to allow parents to pre-set various aspects such as usage limits.
