The Alcatel 7 is finally making its way to the United States after first being announced at MWC in February, and for its U.S. debut, the phone's being sold exclusively through MetroPCS.
Like so many other phones this year, the Alcatel 7 features a narrow 18:9 6-inch display with a resolution of 2160 x 1080. Powering the phone is a MediaTek MT6763T octa-core processor, 2GB RAM, and a 4,000 mah battery — the same capacity found on the much more expensive Samsung Galaxy Note 9.
Other specs for the Alcatel 7 include a 12MP + 2MP rear camera combo, 8MP front-facing camera, 32GB of expandable storage (up to 128GB), rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and Android 8.1 Oreo.
The Alcatel 7 is available for purchase at MetroPCS now and has a retail price of $179.99. That's a fair price as is, but MetroPCS is making the phone even more affordable by making it free after porting your exisitng number and signing up for an unlimited LTE plan. Along with that, customers can also get it for just $129.99 when adding a new line of service or upgrading an exisitng line.
