Bang for the buck device may be getting a metal makeover
Last year one of Alcatel’s biggest sellers in the PH was their Flash Plus, a bang-for-the-buck device that exceeded our expectations in regards to performance and price. It was the benchmark of an international bang-for-the-buck device when it was launched, and it seems that Alcatel is readying the successor device in the next few days.
Alcatel has pegged May 17 as the launch date of the new phone, and a YouTube teaser of the upcoming device hint that it may be made out of metal instead of the plastic that was used in the original phone. Using metal in affordable smartphones isn’t new – rivals Xiaomi and Meizu have already announced several affordable metal-clad budget phones in the first half of this year.
