Alcatel is bundling the handset with a pair of JBL earbuds and an LED-equipped wristband accessory that accepts notifications and also functions as a pedometer, sleep tracker and proximity alarm.

Details about the price is still unknown but it is expected to go on sale in Asian countries this month.

    fail battery para sa octacore na cpu…sana na-optimized yung battery consumption ng cpu na yan

  3. No LTE still? but the band thingy is interesting

    • wla po tlga LTE pag mediatek ang procesor, sa qualcom snapdragon lng po meron 4g LTE

    Ano pala gagawin ng octacore?

    What’s the use of having so many cores in your damn mobile CPU if it gulps power like there’s no tomorrow?

    Seriously, these smartphone and tablet CPU manufacturers are doing it one step forward, three steps backwards when it comes into making their new CPUs. Sure, they can make their CPUs faster but they can’t even lower the damn power consumption.

    Buti pa sa desktop and laptop processors, napapababa yung power consumption kahit nagkakaroon ng speed boost sa CPU, eh sa mga smartphone/tablet CPUs, halos hindi mapababa yung power consumption.

    Expect the octa-core CPU in this device to rape that poor little battery.

  7. Who the hell needs SACD support when you can hardly find media in that format?

    • Da Faux

      A mentally wrecked audiophile arriving from the 1990s era via a time machine would definitely need that damn fucking SACD support!

      Kidding aside, as Zobel said, what’s the fucking point of putting SACD support if we’re already using advanced audio codecs?!

      Useless feature is useless. They probably added it so that Alcatel would have a reason to charge us a premium price.

  8. Maikli pa ang pangalan ng phone, dapat ganto

    ”SACD’s 24bit/192KHz playback which is four times better than a CD.”

    I LOL’d at this
    While on paper that is, it is technically better than a CD audio, the difference is sonically imperceptible (negligible) because there’s a limit to what the human ear can actually perceive. Heck one couldn’t even tell the difference between a 320kbps vs Lossless/FLAC , even with good speakers!

  10. Nga nman aahin mo octa core kung lowbat k agad mas ok quadcore basta ung camera bsi front at back tpos battery 3000mah or 4000 mah at presyo sna less 10k para sulit sa mga nkk raming pinoy

  11. hindi po basehan ang damu ng core sa consumo ng battery.. nasa uri ng cpu yan! mga wala kayong kasiyahan.. tsaka hnd na issue ang battery ngayon..nagkalat na powerbank jan mga iho at iha

    • minsan kase hindi rin practical na magdala ng powerank kahit saan lalo na kung wala ka namang dalang bag san mo ilalagy un sa bulsa mo?eh hindi naman lahat ng powerbank eh slim

    • Its really hard to say kasi ang s4 ay may 2,600 mAh na battery at nahahandle namn ng maayos. Hindi nmn siguro buong araw na gagamitin yan. Ang galaxy y naabot ng mga isat kalahting araw 1,200 mAh . Kaya ok na yun. :))

  12. Magakanu naman kaya ito. User din ako ng Alcatel at wala pa akong naging problema sa product nila ang tibay.

  13. i’m using the ultra HD and i’m very satisfied with it. and I’m very interesting in upgrading to this once it comes out, specially that it has a good DAC and Amp since I’m a music lover. I hope it comes with Arkamys too.

  14. ayos to! FHD octacore lessthan 20k

  15. Requesting for the official review… please! I think this is less than 15K pwde na.. :)

    Maganda po itong Alacatel idol x+. Kung may problema po sa battery just download the app battery booster….. Effective sya- syempre with no wifi- ginagamit ko sya sa phone kong 2 hours pa lang ginagamit low bat na… Nung dinownload ko ito up to 3 days standby time nya… Under 15k po ito at baka lumabas ito sa Pilipinas sa november this year dahil available na daw po ito sa china. Kung hindi naman po ngaun year baka next year para maging isa sa magagandang phone for 2015…. No worries… Maganada itong phone na ito. Bibii din ako
