Following yesterdays announcement of three new Android smartphones from Alcatel, they're back again today with the announcement of another 2 -- the Scribe HD LTE and the Scribe X. 

Android Central @ CES

The Scribe HD LTE looks to be the same device as the Scribe HD that was announced yesterday, but with the added bonus of 4G LTE data capabilities. It's a 5 inch device with a quad-core processor and Jelly Bean. Not bad. 

The Scribe X is a pretty interesting looking device. It's a much higher end smartphone from Alcatel, and packs some extremely competitive specifications. Like the Scribe HD LTE, the Scribe X has a 5 inch display, but this one is a full HD 1080p resolution display. It's packing a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, with a 12MP rear camera and a 720p capable front facing camera. We're also promised a bevy of creative features and accessories centered around creating movies, editing photos and wireless sharing to your TV. 

We're lacking any information on RAM, storage and battery size at this time, but on the face of what we do know, the Scribe X can potentially go toe-to-toe with the newly announced Sony Xperia Z.

Both are to be shown off for the first time during the ongoing CES 2013 show in Las Vegas, and the full press release can be found after the break.

HTC Signed a hefty deal with the devil...I mean, Apple... Will they also follow suit and sue Alcatel (see what I did there?)? These phones look WAY TOO MUCH like the One series. And the pictures just screaaaam 'Butterfly/DNA'.

took the words right out of my mouth.

It's got to sting as they haven't done too well profit wise either

Bingo. I thought immediately that was an HTC One _. Even the color looks the same... Closer look it does look different, but it's that first glance that catches you.

HTC and Alcatel must be sleeping together, I mean look at the 7 inch tab named the One Touch EVO 7 HD, with a black and red color scheme as well.
