Alcatel's new A3 XL is a massive phone at an entry level price with midrange specs. It has a slim design with a plastic exterior and a 6 inch screen. And with a screen this size, a 720 resolution can start to look a little bit pixellated once you get into video content. It comes with an eight megapixel primary camera. And a five megapixel front camera that can record up to 720 pixel videos. You'll also notice a fingerprint scanner on the back which is not very common for phones for this price range. It's also running the latest version of Android Nougat and comes with a quad-core 1.1 gigahertz process. It doesn't come with a lot of on board storage but you can expand up to 32 gigabytes with an SD card. It also comes with a large battery to match at 3,000. [UNKNOWN] hours. The A3XL will launch in [UNKNOWN], Asia, and Europe in Q1 of this year.
