Just as we revealed a couple of days ago, Alcatel One Touch has just unveiled its latest wearable at CES 2015, known simply as the Watch. The highlight of this smartwatch is that it doesn’t run Android Wear, but instead a custom OS designed specifically for wearables. This essentially means that the device is compatible with both Android (4.3 and above) and iPhones (iOS 7 and higher).
Alcatel OneTouch has just announced a trio of affordable Android-powered PIXI smartphones it will showcase at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, between Tuesday, January 6, and Friday, January 9, 2015.
Alcatel One Touch has certainly made a splash here at CES by introducing a host of awesome smartphones. Our own Rob Nazarian got some hands-on time with the T’Pop, S’Pop, M’Pop and X’Pop smartphones. As you can see, all 4 come in a variety of shapes and features– with the T’Pop, S’Pop, M’Pop and X’Pop models each featuring a single-core processor, but the M’Pop & X’Pop models both feature bigger screens and Jelly Bean running the show. The fairly exciting thing about this is the fact that each model seems to feature a lightly customized build of Android, so at least there’s no extra junk to slow the devices down much. All in all– the devices seem like a good bet to make a pretty good impression for those in the market for a budget-level device.

Alcatel is intent on making a major splash at CES this week by not only revamping its brand perception from consumers, but waging war against other smartphone manufacturers in the ever-growing 5-inch smartphone market. The modest manufacturer has announced a couple of not-so-modest devices called the One Touch Scribe X and the One Touch Scribe HD-LTE. Each device will come fully loaded as they will feature a 1.4GHz quad-core processor, a full 5-inch 1080p HD display and a 12MP camera for starters. The main difference: the Scribe HD-LTE will feature an LTE radio on-board, while the Scribe X will not. Additionally, each smartphone will be complimented by some pretty neat accessories, which promise to greatly enhance the overall entertainment potential and capabilities
Looks like Alcatel is certainly on its way to bringing a compelling device that will take on the likes of HTC and other manufacturers out there. You’ll find more deets of the announcement when you hit the break and check out the full presser.

Alcatel One Touch hasn’t made much noise in the Android world recently, but that could all change. The above picture is the Alcatel 995 which will have a 4.3-inch display, 1.4GHz processor, 5MP rear camera, and 1.3MP front camera. It has Android 2.3.4 with a custom UI similar to SPB Shell 3D, but they are committed to bringing Ice Cream Sandwich.
The plan is to officially launch this puppy at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain at the end of February. Shortly after that it will launch with a price of €199 or approximately $270.
