Alcatel Pixi 4 (6) is one of the latest devices in its maker’s Pixi range of affordable smartphones showcased at CES 2016. The handset packs in a behemoth HD display, a quad-core processor and latest Android software.
Display and Camera
The Alcatel Pixi 4 (6) sports a humongous 6-inch IPS LCD display with a resolution of 1,280 x 720 pixels. Now, this large screen estate should make this handset appeal to individuals who love to watch movies on their devices. The lowly 245ppi pixel density, however, leaves more to be desired.
In the camera department, the 8.3mm-thick Alcatel Pixi 4 (6) comes with an 8-megapixel main camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.
The primary shooter features autofocus, LED flash and HDR for amazing shots, while also offering Full HD (1080p) video recording capability. The selfie snapper features flash for great images.
Hardware and Software
As for the internals, the Alcatel Pixi 4 (6) is supposedly armed with a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processor – or possibly a MediaTek chip – clocked at 1.1 GHz.
The Cortex-A7 CPU is paired with an Adreno 304 and 1 GB of RAM. This phablet will not win performance awards, but should offer enough to those who do not usually leave many apps open at the same time.
You get 8 GB of onboard storage, a significant chunk of which has already been taken up by system resources. Not to worry, you will be able to expand storage with a microSD card by up to 64 GB.
The Alcatel Pixi 4 (6), interestingly, boots the latest Android 6.0 Marshmallow operating system for awesome user experience.
A 2,840mAh battery provides power juice to the Alcatel Pixi 4 (6), with this rated to deliver up to 26 hours in talk time. In addition to 3G connectivity, the mammoth supports blazing-fast 4G LTE (Cat. 4) connectivity.
Alcatel Pixi 4 (6) offers dual-SIM slots to enable you separate work from leisure. You also get Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n for wireless connectivity.
