Alcatel announced this week at IFA 2016 a series of new tablets and a 6 inch phone called XL. It’s the tablets that interest us more, since the Pop 4 slates are available in 7 and 10 inch versions.


We’re dealing with models that have “style and substance” according to their maker, since they offer premium metallic designs. They also bring MaxxAudio acoustics, courtesy of a partnership between Alcatel and Waves. LTE support is also here and the 10 inch slate relies on an octa core Snapdragon 430 CPU. The 7 incher goes with a quad core MediaTek MT8735 chipset.

These models should have LTE on board and from what I can see there’s also a keyboard accessory in the mix, probably sold separately. The products will be launched in the Middle East, Africa and Europe in mid October. We have no clue what the prices are yet. Probably around $200 or $250…
