Alcatel Flash Plus to sell for Php6,490 on May 15

We’ve finally gotten final word about the release date and the suggested retail price of the Alcatel One Touch Flash Plus. This, after several inquiries and follow-up with the vendor in the last several weeks.

While our earlier report stated a target date of May 1, 2015 and a suggested retail price of Php6,990, nothing is really final until all things are cleared from different stakeholders (customs, NTC, distributor, vendor).

As such, the original plan was revised.

The release date is now scheduled for May 15. Lazada will still have exclusive distribution rights (for the first 3 months) so there will be no inventory in shops and kiosks until after August 15, 2015.

Lazada will formally announce the sale on May 12 during a media release.

The final SRP is pegged at Php6,490 for the 16GB model. Only the slate color will be released on the first batch of 2,500 units.

You can read about our first impressions and benchmark results here.

Author’s Note: We were consulted by Alcatel as to the SRP of the Flash Plus and we gave 3 price points, Php6,990 being the highest SRP of all 3 suggestions. They gave us permission to report the Php6,990 price. This is the reason why we published Php6,990 in our previous stories — and, in case they changed their minds afterwards and after we repeatedly urged them to go lower, the final SRP will still be below what we reported.

    impressed ako sa specs ng ASUS zenfone 2 551ml lalo na dun sa 4GB RAM variant. kaso walang pambili…

    impressed ako sa CM ONE, sa price point, kaso parang hati ang reception dahil sa may “issues” daw…

    ngayon, impressed ako sa specs at price point ng flash plus at mukhang eto na kukuhanin ko. buti hindi pa ko nakabili ng CM ONE at di kagandahan ang picture quality…

    sana i offer din eto sa postpaid @ lower plan kahit mga hanggang P500.

      still waiting for the review of afp… yuga pls pakisama ung multitouch, notification led, at ung pixel density nia na 264ppi compared sa zf5(eto ung phone ko e)…

  5. Hi, ask ko lang dun sa non removable battery may reset button po ba? for ex pressing the power button for a long tine then it will forcefully shutdown? just like the Alcatel Onetouch Scribe Easy?

    There should be a comparo of the following:

    Firefly Mobile Intense LTE 64 Bit
    Alcatel Flash +
    AsusZenfone a
    Meizu M1 Note

    at sa 4 na yan Firefly lang ang truly available nationwide lelz. There’s really something wrong with this picture.
