Alcatel OneTouch Idol FOUR packaging to function as VR headset
If you're like me, the box that your brand-new mobile phone is available in right away obtains kept in the storage room up until it's time to offer it and also buy a substitute. With Alcatel's newest mobile phone, you may want to keep the retail box nearby as it doubles as a virtual reality customer a la Google Cardboard.
VentureBeat claims the Alcatel OneTouch Idol FOUR will deliver in a hard plastic box that could act as a VR customer. It'll have a slot for the phone to move right into, a pair of eyepieces on the in and a switch on the side to connect with the device. While not nearly as high-tech as something like an Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, Alcatel's development alone certainly obtains a nod.
The OneTouch Idol FOUR, on the other hand, is ideal described as a mid-range Android mobile phone. It loads a 5.5-inch Quad HD AMOLED present that's powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 652 SoC along with 3GB of RAM and also 16GB of neighborhood storage space (expandable using microSD card port). There's also a 16-megapixel rear-facing cam with f/2.0 aperture lens as well as a flash-assisted 8-megapixel selfie cam up front.
The magazine states Alcatel is preparing to value the OneTouch Idol 4S at under $400 when it strikes retailers in May. While not pointed out particularly, it's nearly a dued to the fact that we'll see the Idol 4S et cetera of Alcatel's rejuvenated schedule at Mobile World Congress later on this month.
