Plenty of surprises today at the announcement of the Flash Plus 2. First, the brand is now an independent entity from Alcatel, and now the phone sports a bunch of premium features that’s usually reserved for expensive devices: a metal build and fingerprint sensor; a huge step from the previous iteration of the device.
According to Flash, the fingerprint sensor can unlock your smartphone in 0.5 seconds and can also be used to access and open private folders.
For audiophiles out there, the Flash Plus 2 sports a Hi-Fi audio chip that will let you enjoy its speaker system that comes with a NXP9890 audio amplifier for a robust sound.
The smartphone also has an f/2.0 autofocus rear camera with PDAF that can focus on objects in 0.1 seconds while the front camera features a 84.4-degree wide angle lens with LED flash for selfies.
Inside the Flash Plus 2 is a 3000mAh battery and it offers quick charging that Flash claims can charge 50% of the battery in 30 minutes. The phone will also be powered by a Helio P10 processor and it will come with either 16GB ROM/2GB RAM or 32GBROM/3GB RAM. The storage is expandable by up to 128GB.
There will also be a 5.5-inch FHD OGS display with MiraVision 2.0 that brings intelligent brightness adjustment and low-light optimization features. The Flash Plus 2 will also support Dual SIM 4G and the smartphone has individual slots for MicroSD and sim cards instead of using the more common hybrid slot. Another thing we like about the smartphone is that the Flash Plus 2 uses stock Android Marshmallow, which means no UI skins and no bloatware.
The Flash Plus 2 will come in USD160 (P7,425) for the 2GB version and USD 190 (P8,817) for the 3GB version. It will also ship in two colors: Venus Gold and Luna Silver
