TCL-owned Alcatel is apparently looking to storm the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2017 next month with no less than five new Android smartphones. One of the five new devices to be unveiled next month will be a modular smartphone, which will allow users to add functionality through replaceable back covers. Unfortunately though, specific details on the back covers aren’t available yet, so we might have to wait longer to find out more about them.
One of the back covers seen below seems to feature LED illumination, something that we haven’t yet seen on a smartphone yet. We imagine the LEDs will glow in sync with the music being played on the phone, or perhaps any other type of multimedia content.
As far as the rest of the specs go, the smartphone is rumored to be powered by a MediaTek octa-core processor under the hood. The smartphone will be equipped with a 13MP camera at the back, paired with a dual-tone LED flash. In terms of pricing, the smartphone is expected to be priced at 320 EUR for the unlocked variant, suggesting that it could turn out to be the Idol 5.
The company will be announcing four other smartphones at the event, but absolutely nothing about those devices has been leaked yet. All the info will be unveiled at Alcatel’s press conference on February 26th in Barcelona.
