Alcatel launches new smartphones in the Philippines, prices inside


A couple of months back, Alcatel launched the Glory X 918N and the Sapphire HD 995—two affordable smartphones under its One Touch series. Just yesterday, they’ve added to that list with 4 new affordable dual-sim smartphones.

There’s something for everybody in the One Touch line—from the tiny Glam 810D (the only one not running Android) that’s shaped like a pocket mirror that opens up to reveal a physical qwerty keyboard and display, to the larger Inspire 991D that features a 4-inch display, 3G and HSDPA, an 800 MHz processor, and Android 2.3. The latter also has a “little brother” in the form of the Blaze 985N that features a smaller screen. In between that, there’s the Spark FB 916D that is similar to BlackBerry phones and features a tactile qwerty keypad, 3G and HSDPA, a 5-megapixel camera, and Android 2.3.

The prices for Alcatel’s smartphones are as follows—Glam 810D at Php 3,599, Glory X 918N at Php 5,999, Spark FB 916D at Php 6,999, Blaze 985N at Php7,999, Inspire 991D at Php8,999, and Sapphire HD 995 at Php 13,999.
