Alcatel can be considered as one of the busiest OEMs out there introducing new phones regularly. Just recently, we’ve heard of the Idol 4 bundled with VR Goggle as an exclusive offering from Cricket Wireless, the Alcatel Dawn on Virgin Mobile, and the Alcatel OneTouch Pop 7 LTE on T-Mobile. This time, there’s the Alcatel TRU being offered by MetroPCS.
The Alcatel TRU is another budget-friendly from the company. It only costs $29 with a phone upgrade or activation from the mobile carrier. If you’re looking for a new entry-level smartphone as an extra phone or maybe to give away to you kids, then consider this new Alcatel phone. The $29 offer by MetroPCS is the final price after taxes and mail-in rebate of $60.00–down from the $109 original price.
The Alcatel TRU as a super affordable phone offers value for money. Well, that is, if you’re not really looking for a high-end unit. This one will be enough if you want one for basic messaging, phone calls, social media, and mobile web surfing.
The device comes equipped with good enough specs like a 5-inch FWVGA display screen, 854 x 480 pixel resolution, 5MP rear camera, 2MP front-facing cam, 1.1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core chipset (MSM8909), 1GB RAM, 8GB onboard storage, microSD card slot, and a 2000mAh battery. Specs may be low but this one already offers 4G LTE data speed and runs Android Lollipop out of the box.
