It’s a standalone device running on Android Marshmallow and sports two 3.8-inch Full HD AMOLED screens, octa-core CPU, 3GB RAM, 32GB ROM, Bluetooth, WiFi, LTE, and accelerometer, gyroscope, proximity sensor, and 3,000mAh battery.
Alcatel also partnered with Jaunt VR, Magic Interactive Entertainment and Fraunhofer for preloaded VR content.
Next is the Alcatel 360 Camera that comes in two models – rectangular and ball-shaped. Both sport dual 210-degree fisheye lens and can be easily plugged into the micro USB port of any IDOL 4, IDOL 4S or POP 4S phone.
