Alcatel Flash Plus coming May 1 for about Php6k+




Just got confirmation that Alcatel’s very affordable yet capable smartphone, the Alcatel Flash Plus, is set for release in the Philippines by May 1, 2015 with a price tag of around Php6k.

Launched in China earlier under a different name for $RMB899 (Php6,300), the Flash Plus is positioned to be a very powerful and capable entry-level handset.

    Bang for the bucks..2gb ram..16gbrom..13 mp camera 8 mp front…LTE?

  2. Dennis Flores says:

    2GB Ram?? are you sure? every link i find shows it as 1GB.

  3. samuie says:

    is the sensor the same that is used by these smartphones?
    XIAOMI MI4, Huawei Ascend P7, Smartisan T1, Oneplus One Smartphone, OPPO Find 7, OPPO R1S and VIVO Xshot, OPPO N1 Mini, Huawei Honor 6, Nubia Z7, Nubia Z7 Max, Nubia Z7 Mini, etc.

    That would be GREAT!

  4. chinito says:

    wow talaga kung around 7K lang. kumpleto na para sa akin yung specs, from screen to RAM, camera, battery, most of all, LTE.

  5. Matthew says:

    What is the name of this phone in China? So that I can watch the unboxing or hands-on of this phone. Thanks YugaTech!

  6. harthart says:

    Dual LTE is hart hart

  7. Easy E says:

    Di pa man nare-release ang zenfone2, napanis na kaagad. International version should have lollipop out of the box.

  8. jajajason says:

    TCL M2U

    • ButtSniffer says:

      This person is doing his research, Thumbs up!
      but why would Alcatel rebrand? I thought they were their own OEM. . .

    • StriderBerto says:

      @ButtSniffer – di naman to completey rebranded phone. Iisang companyn lang naman kasi ang TCL at Alcatel, d ko sure ang exact reason pero dahil siguro mas kilala ang Alcatel as a cellphone brand kaya ayun…

    • Abe Olandres says:

      TCL bought Alcatel many years back. TCL is the more popular brand in China but Alcatel is the more popular brand globally. Thus, the different naming conventions used.

    • danny says:

      Same spec.with TcL. But price is $199?

  9. Ang ganda ng specs for the price!

  10. Wow says:

    Ito na lang kesa meizu m1 note at zenfone 2

  11. dothackjhe says:

    Hopefully the actual specification lives up what it was composed of and not just looked good in paper.

  12. denmark says:

    Wow…kailangan makita ang hands on nyan agad, ireview na yan agad!

  13. Jo says:

    sana magkaroon din ng version na 5 inch lng screen okaya 4.7

    o meron na tlaga d ko lng alam?

  14. titengTAOB says:

  15. penoy says:

    Damn, this is great. Sana nga dumating sa May 1 para birthday gift ko sa sarili ko. I’m so excited for this, kahit 8-9K papatulan ko yan.

  16. Androidfreak says:

    Tagal pa nyan ubos na ang pera ng mga tao kakabili ng Zenfone 2 at mi4 bago mailabas yan.

  17. zellkyo says:

    patindi ng patindi ang competition ah. popcorn pa more! Baka next nyan Motorola na or Lenovo. Lagot ang local brands

  18. NotaSheep says:

    Zenfone 2 2gig ram (Release probably in July) vs Meizu M1 (Just released) vs Alcatel Flash (Release in May) +….

    God why do they have to release so late in summer!? i’ll buy the Meizu just because it’s already here… IF IT GET HERE IN CEBU!! =A=

  19. klky says:

    troll news: sa lazada lang nbibili at flash sale lang daw available ang phone na to and about 100 lang daw ang stocks….. lol

    magkanu kya bentahan ng zenfone 5 na 2nd hand.. mkapagbenta na nga . . .

  20. Emilioaquino says:

    Wala na tlga patay na tlga ang mga local brands

  21. archie says:

    Kung 6k lang ito ibig sabihin mura din ang Alcatel Idol 3 series na 4.7 at 5.5 nila. Binigla nila ang mga naghihintay ng Zenfone 2. Iiyak na lang ang Oppo dahil mas dumami ang kalaban ng overpriced phones nila.

  22. allan says:

    Ano sim nito parehas na micro or nano?

  23. Red says:

    Ayos to. Ganda at mura ng mga smartphones ngayon andami pagpipilian na sulit at maganda specs gaya n2 at ng asus zenphone 2 and meizu m1 note. Wag sana lagpas ng 8k pagdating d2.

  24. danny says:

    Matibay din ang alcatel..may android one touch ko more than three years..with 2gb ram and more than 3000 mah battery..LTE,camera,rom,octacore…bang for the bucks talaga

  25. peeyaj says:

    Kung kelan ko na gusto mo bumili ng m1 note saka naman lalabas eto.. lol.. sana 1080p ang display kundi best bang for the buck na eto.. m1 note or this?

    • danny says:

      Meizu m1 note..advantage full HD higher 1.7 octacore..disadvantage no sd slot..php 7,999?.
      M2U…selfie, micro sd card,3,500mah bat., lower price 6,000 +
      Cons..only 720p res. Lower cpu,

    • gum says:

      Advantage niyan Alcatel Flash vs M1 Note is yan Lollipop capable na. Wala nang mahabang petition pa na mag labas ng update or marelease ang source codes.

  26. akatsuki says:

    waterproof nlng ang kulang

    • Matthew says:

      Di ka na po lugi sa ganyang specs na super affordable. Sa mga flagship phones lang po ang karamihan sa mga waterproof na smartphones. :)

  27. rai says:

    one question… detachable battery?

  28. Darvs says:

    ask lng 64bit ba?.. kc ung m2u 64bit eh.. ty

    • Matthew says:

      For me, yes. Kasi same specs lang sila ng TCL M2U. Iibahin nila ang pangalan internationally. Dati kasing nasa Alcatel ang TCL. :)

  29. alligator kap says:

    This tightens up the competition a notch. Kudos sa asus, meizu, xiaomi at ngayon alcatel. :) sa samsung, oppo at local brands up your game naman or get left behind.

  30. Vincez says:

    d nmn lhat ng price d2 ung tlga tama pagdating d2 sa pinas mga 8k+ yn

    • Matthew says:

      Confirmed na nga po na below 7k. Alcatel na po ang may sabi sa YugaTech mismo. :)
      Think positive na ganyan nga ang price.

  31. ExcitedBuyer says:

    Excited pa naman ako sa Asus Zenfone 2 at Meizu M1 Note. Medyo mababa lang yung resolution niya considering 5.5 inch @ 267 PPI. Pero panalo yung front camera niya.

  32. Dredd says:

    1 major drawback for me – the phone looks cheap & ordinary pass muna ako hehe

    • trolllllllllliiii says:

      kung gusto mo mag mukhang mayaman mag iphone6 ka
      kung ang hanap mo lang pla sa phone eh dapat mag mukhang mahal madaming pagpipilian jan may vertu pa

    • cK says:

      @ Dredd : Alam mo kung ano’ng dapat mo’ng bilhin? Additional na utak. 6k na nga ang initial price, anong ini-expect mo, metal body? Sheeesh..

    • Alligator Kap says:

      @Dredd I don’t care much about aesthetics. As long as it delivers well on performance its fine by me. Yes the flash plus may look generic but if it can outgun or at least be at par with more expensive phones, this will be a hit. As for you dumbass, go buy yourself an iphone or an htc.

  33. aviv pendulat says:

    is the price really under 7k here in the philippines when it will be released in may ?

  34. Wikipinoy says:

    Tama malabo sa 6k yan..Alcatel pa sobra mahal din cp nila parang Lenovo.

  35. Zobel says:

    That’s it! my unabashed hatred for Alcatel has officially gone out the window hihihi! Now there’s only Sony, Oppo and Starmobile left.

    Anyhoo I’m planning to buy another phone next week. Looks like I’m stuck with Zenfone 5. That or waiting. Ayoko na rin ng local brands. Puro palpak at nakakairita na ang kabobohan ng mga Pinoy sa FB groups.

  36. edward john traya says:

    are you really sure of the price ? because im saving my money for this phone. please answer . is it really under 7k ?

    • Matthew says:

      Yes. Alcatel na po ang may sabi sa YugaTech na below Php 6999 ang presyo niyan. Think positive na ganun nga expected price. :)

  37. alan says:

    ano sim nito parehas na micro sim or isang regular and micro?

  38. alan says:

    maganda specs pinagpipilian ko ito or huawei g750

  39. alan says:

    At sana hindi built in ang battery.

  40. Hamatora-sama says:

    pag narelease po ba ito sa pilipinas , san ako pwd makabili ng alcatel phones? ano online site po? tnx… :) #excited hehehe

  41. drich says:

    ma add ko lang po that Mediatek MT6752M as far from my research is a 64bit cpu a downgraded version of Mediatek MT6752 which is a 64bit also correct me if im wrong

  42. vaans02 says:

    Hopefully it the specs are the same if it comes out here because I’m reading articles it has 1gb ram.

  43. jay says:

    Sir saan po kayo nakakita nung unit?
    Ibig sabihin po ba nandito na sa pilipinas yan?

    “Saw a unit earlier. confirmed it.”

    Yan yung comment nyo na nakita ko…

  44. Raito says:

    Medyo mababa yung 1.5Ghz niya compared sa karaniwang 1.7Ghz Mediatek MT6752M.

  45. Andres says:

    Ampapanget ninyong lahat

  46. Shanmikel says:

    guys tanong lang, anu maganda ito o zenfone 2??? pag dating sa cnu lamang??? slamat

    • Shanmikel says:

      guys tanong lang, anu maganda ito o zenfone 2??? pag dating sa *CAMERA* cnu lamang??? slamat

  47. Dave MAcalinao says:

    6.5 k kaya to pababa ?

    • Alligator Kap says:

      Sir abe had a little chat with alcatel execs and they said it would be priced at 6990. With that price this is the phone to beat along with skk’s lynx. Its kinda nice you know. Things will be heating up in a couple of weeks. :)

  48. pedro hilaga says:

    best deal ever…

  49. aucifer says:

    for the 32GB internal storage … will it also be released on the same date or no announcements so far? ?? how much will the 32GB cost ? ( mga x2 ng 7k? )
